KUALA LUMPUR: The all-electric Chery Omoda E5 SUV (sport utility vehicle), due to be launched in Malaysia in March 2024, will be the lead car at the upcoming Chery Eco Run 2024 at Dataran Wawasan Putrajaya on January 7.

Chery Eco Run 2024, themed "A New Journey To A New Green Life", is expected to attract over 3,000 participants and is set to be an annual fun run event.

The two-wheel drive Omoda E5 offers a range of up to 430km (based on WLTP), and its single motor is powered by a 61kWh blade lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery.

Power output is 150kW/201hp and torque is 340Nm.

AC charging is at 9.9kW and DC is 80kW, and fast DC charging can charge the battery from 30% to 80% in 30 minutes.

The 0-100kph sprint is done in 7.6 seconds.

According to Chery, the longevity of lithium iron phosphate batteries reduces the frequency and cost of battery replacement.

The Omoda E5 will come with 16 advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) features, including blind-spot monitoring, reverse warning, and automatic emergency braking that recognizes pedestrians and cyclists.

The dashboard has a clean, minimalist look, and is dominated by a 24.6-inch 3D true curved interface screen, with the infotainment system powered by a Qualcomm 8155 chip.

Features on the Omoda E5 include 18-inch alloy wheels, automatic power-on upon entry, automatic shutdown upon exit, creep function (vehicle moves upon brake pedal release), one-pedal driving technology (speed retardation when foot is lifted off accelerator pedal), Panic Button (emergency braking activated when Park button is pressed while driving) and an active air intake grille which opens/closes based on motor temperature and aerodynamic needs.
