It looks like upcoming Chinese automotive brand Omoda is set to make a big splash when it officially enters the country in the last quarter of this year.
Apart from bringing in the internal combustion engine-powered Omoda 5, it has also confirmed that it will be launching the EV version.
In an intimate preview held online with select members of the media, the brand showcased what the EV model has to offer.
As we previously reported, the Omoda 5 EV is powered by a Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor with a liquid-cooled system. Power output is estimated at 150kW and around 400Nm of torque. On a full charge, the vehicle can cover 300 (standard EV) or 450 (extended range variant) kilometers.
An AC/DC charging module comes standard with the car, which can top up the battery from 0% in about 8 hours. Meanwhile, the fast charger can get you from 30% to 80% in about 30 minutes.
What’s more, Omoda Philippines is confident that both the ICE and EV variants of the SUV will be one of the safest cars in the Philippines.
Manufactured in a superfactory, where almost everything is automated and powered by robotics, the Omoda 5 is built with quality and safety as priority. Each unit also undergoes an NVH (noise, vibration, harshness) reduction process in the superfactory’s very own NVH Laboratory. Last but not least, the car goes through extreme punishment in the plant’s in-house crash test arena. In fact, the Omoda 5 has scored 5 stars in its most recent European New Car Assessment Program (Euro NCAP) test.
During the online Q&A session, Omoda disclosed its plans to maintain local warehouses stocked with parts. This strategic move aims to minimize potential delays for prospective owners seeking repairs or assistance under warranty.
The entire vehicle comes with a 5-year/200,000km warranty, while the battery, motor, and electric control system comes with an 8-year/200,000km warranty.
