Chery Omoda E5 EV Launched in Malaysia – 204PS/340Nm, Up to 430km Range, RM147k

The Chery Omoda E5 has just been launched in Malaysia! The electric SUV is Chery Malaysia’s first EV on our shores, and it’s actually based on the ICE Omoda 5 that was launched locally back in July 2023.

First, pricing. For the Malaysian market, the Omoda E5 is priced at RM146,800, which is actually quite a bit lower than the estimated price of RM160,000. While this price tag is higher than the pricing of the ICE Omoda 5 (RM108,800 to RM118,800), it does undercut one of its main rivals, the BYD Atto 3. The highest-end model of the SUV – which is most comparable to the E5 – goes for RM167,800.

For that kind of money, the Omoda E5 features a front-mounted electric motor that can do 204PS and 340Nm of torque, allowing it to go from 0-100kmph in 7.6 seconds with a top speed of 172kmph. It also has a 61kWh battery that can provide up to 430km of range on the stringent WLTP cycle.

As for charging time, the E5 can do 80kW DC charging that can juice up the battery from 30-80% in 28 minutes. AC charging, on the other hand, is set at 9.9kW. Beyond that, it supports 3.3kW vehicle-to-load (V2L) function as well to power electrical appliances and devices.

The Chery Omoda E5 is now available for booking in Malaysia for RM146,800 at Chery dealerships nationwide. It’s worth noting that the first 2,000 customers will receive a number of freebies as well, including a wallbox charger, a V2L charger, and even a RM1,000 charging credit with EVC.
