Chery Motor, China’s biggest exporter of automotive vehicles, has officially launched in Australia with its stylish and feature-packed SUV, the OMODA 5.

As of today, the OMODA 5 is available for test drive, purchase and delivery at any of Chery’s dealerships nationwide. From Launceston to Darwin, and Wangara to Tweed Heads, all states and territories are covered.

Key locations include; Wollongong, Sutherland, Mornington, Hobart, Ferntree Gully, Adelaide, Launceston, Wangara, Canberra, Darwin, Tweed Heads, Ryde, Blacktown, Springwood and many more. Chery plans to further expand this network in the coming months in preparation for further models landing down under, with the Tiggo 7 Pro and Tiggo 8 Pro SUV’s penned for the end of this year.

“The feedback we’ve been getting from our national dealer network is that they are extremely excited – as we are – about the OMODA 5. They love the built in level of safety, technology and design, with features that dealers are used to seeing in cars that cost two to three times the price.” Roy Munoz, Director Network Development, Chery Australia.
