The Malaysia-bound 2022 Chery Omoda 5 was spotted again but for the first time, a front-view shot is available despite being camouflaged. The latest model from even before it went on sale in China.

Chery, the Chinese automaker has plans to launch the Omoda 5 here in Malaysia and it could be launched as early as 2023. This means that the Chery Tiggo 7 Pro and Tiggo 8 Pro will be launched first before the Omoda 5.

What stands out is actually the trade plate on the Chery Omoda 5 as it is similar to the one found on a Peugeot, which seems to suggest that it belongs to Stellantis' manufacturing plant in Kulim.

Nevertheless, checks with our sources suggested that the plate belonged to neither Chery nor Stellantis but rather a third-party company.

There's no info on the Penang-based third-party company but it's likely to be an engineering services or a local parts manufacturer company. Could it be Continental Automotive or Bosch?

There are three variants that comes powered by the 1.6-litre engine, prices start from RMB 108,900 (~RM 72,000) to RMB 128,900 (~RM 86,000). Note that these prices will not be reflected when the car goes on sale in Malaysia, so expect it to be more expensive when it arrives.
