Months ahead of its retail schedule, Omoda Philippines has already brought in actual units of the Omoda 5 for pre-launch activities and previews, to further prepare for its scheduled brand launch before the year ends.
Country Director Marco Chen, who is currently based in the Anhui, China Headquarters of Omoda and Jaecoo, even flew into the Philippines to personally inspect the PH-spec units. The Omoda 5 variants that will be offered to the PH market will be the 1.5L turbo ICE top-variant, 1.5L turbo entry spec, Omoda 5 EV, and Omoda 5 EV Extended Range (450km).
“We are excited to finally have the actual Omoda 5 units in the country. This way, we can have an avenue to offer our stakeholders, media partners, and potential clients a full-on experience with the car even before its formal launch. We also have some pre-launch activities in the pipeline that’s geared towards building more confidence with our products”, said Uzzi Asuncion, Philippines Brand Manager for Omoda and Jaecoo.
