Electric SUV Of The Year –  Chery Omoda E5

Our pick for Electric SUV of 2024 goes to the Chery Omoda E5.

The Electric SUV category last year was not very expansive. This time around, we have entries from multiple Chinese brands and we don’t think they’re unimpressive considering the price tag. In fact, the judges had their work cut out for them when picking just one Electric SUV for the award. Our pick was the Chery Omoda E5.

The Omoda E5 is built on the same chassis and fundamentals as the Chery Omoda 5 but comes with independent rear suspension and all the hardware needed to make it fully electric. One big change was the design of the front end, which is undeniably more appealing and matches the angular presentation at the rear. What’s more, the vehicle is specified and priced really well with a very complete and lengthy warranty. If you’re looking for a starter electric SUV, the Chery Omoda E5 is our pick.

About VOTY 2024

The Allianz DSF.my Vehicle Of The Year (VOTY) Award ceremony is the first and only vehicle award event in Malaysia that does not hand out paid awards, nor does it charge winners or participating brands any fee whatsoever. Winners are allowed to use the VOTY event logo free of charge in all marketing materials. Event attendees are not even charged for their seat at the award presentation. All car manufacturers that operate in Malaysia are invited to participate free of charge. All they have to do is let our judges test drive their nominated vehicles.

The nominated vehicles must have been launched in Malaysia in the last 12 months and cannot be a localised minor facelift (body-kits, stickers, wheel upgrades, etc). All judging is independent and is put down to a vote before the winners are selected. Car manufacturers are not informed if they are winning or not before the event.
