    Chery Tiggo 8 Pro

    The Chery Tiggo 8 Pro on the other hand launched in July 2023, marked Chery Malaysia's comeback to the Malaysian market . The seven-seater SUV is available in a single Luxury variant priced at RM 159,800. It boasts a robust 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine delivering 256 hp and 390 Nm of torque, paired with a seven-speed DCT gearbox. Key features include a "galaxy"-inspired front grille, dual 24.6-inch screens, a Sony sound system, and extensive safety features like nine airbags and a 540-degree camera. The Tiggo 8 Pro's dimensions are 4,722 mm in length, 1,860 mm in width, and 1,705 mm in height, with a wheelbase of 2,710 mm, putting it around the size of the Proton X90 and Mazda CX-8.

    Chery Omoda E5

    Meanwhile, the Chery Omoda E5 EV, priced at RM 146,800, is designed for Malaysia's growing electric vehicle market. Powered by a front-mounted electric motor producing 201 PS and 340 Nm of torque, it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.6 seconds. It features a 61 kWh Blade lithium iron phosphate battery with a 430 km range. The Omoda E5 supports AC charging at 9.9 kW and DC fast charging up to 80 kW, recharging from 30% to 80% in 28 minutes. Its advanced features include a 24.6-inch curved screen, a Premium Sony Sound System, and a comprehensive suite of ADAS. The EV also offers a seven-year or 150,000km vehicle warranty, and an eight-year or 160,000km battery warranty, with a one-to-one battery exchange if the state of health drops below 70% during the warranty period.

    The Chery Tiggo 8 Pro, Tiggo 7 Pro, and Omoda E5 are all assembled at Chery's local assembly facility in collaboration with Inokom Corporation Sdn Bhd (Inokom) in Kedah. While the initial batch of the Omoda E5 was fully imported, CKD models are now being locally assembled and will soon be available.

    Chery Tiggo 2 pro

    Another exciting addition to Chery's lineup is on the horizon: the Chery Tiggo 2 Pro, slated for launch at the end of the year. This petite SUV measures approximately 4.2 meters in length, 1.76 meters in width, and 1.57 meters in height, making it a perfect subcompact competitor to the likes of the Perodua Ativa, Honda WR-V, and Mazda CX-3.

    The Tiggo 2 Pro typically features a 1.5-liter naturally aspirated engine, delivering around 105 horsepower and 135 Nm of torque. It is available with either a manual or automatic transmission. Given the market preference, it is likely that the Malaysian variant will come with an automatic transmission. For comparison, its power output is similar to the Perodua Ativa, although the Honda WR-V offers slightly more power.
