What is the history of the Omoda car? Who makes Omoda vehicles?

Omoda is a sub-brand of Chery. For years, Chery has been synonymous with reliable and affordable vehicles, winning the trust of drivers worldwide. In its continuous evolution, Chery introduced the Omoda brand as a strategic move to captivate a younger demographic, offering them not just cars but a symbol of modernity and style.

The Omoda C5, the pioneer model of this new venture, marks a significant milestone in Chery's journey. It encapsulates the brand's commitment to innovation and its aspiration to connect with a dynamic, style-conscious audience. The Omoda C5's launch marks the birth of a new philosophy in automotive design and technology, one that resonates with the ethos of the next generation.

Omoda made its debut in 2022. The brand was first introduced in Russia and Kazakhstan in October 2022, with the Omoda C5 as its inaugural model. The name ‘Omoda’ is derived from the word ‘oxygen’, while ‘Moda’ signifies ‘modern’. Chery’s president explains that Omoda aims to cater to the ‘Fashion Elite’, a demographic characterized by their dynamic, avant-garde, and fashion-centric tendencies. And in April of 2023, the Omoda made its South African debut!
