Chery Omoda E5 EV Price

While there are no official announcements from the Chinese automaker, we can make some logical guesses. For reference, we know that the petrol trim ranges between $32,990 AUD to $35,990 AUD. The electric versions of petrol cars generally command a significant premium over the ICE variants. Therefore, the prices will be considerably higher than these.

Interior And Features

Inside the cabin, we expect the electric version of the Omoda 5 to borrow components from the petrol avatar. This could include a 12.3-inch curved infotainment display, a panoramic sunroof, a digital instrument cluster, ambient lighting, soft-touch materials, plenty of storage spaces, premium door panels and more. All in all, it will offer the latest tech and convenience to pamper its occupants.
