Here's another opportunity for Malaysians to give their say on an upcoming model's specs: Chery Malaysia has opened up a survey on the Chery Omoda 5 EV, and they want to know what you think.

Now, globally an Omoda 5 EV doesn't exist yet, so this survey is one of the few opportunites you'll have in determining an imminent model's specs. This first peek, so to say, shows us that Chery's pulling no punches.

Preliminary specs are enticing: Chery says the electric motor produces 203 PS and 400 Nm of torque. That's paired to a 64 kWh battery; good for a claimed 450 km range as tested on the more-stringent WLTP test cycle.

DC fast charging times are quoted to only take 40 minutes (from 0% to 80%), and 5 hours for AC charging.

One thing the questionnaire makes very clear is that the Omoda 5 wants to take on the Hyundai Kona Electric and more notably, the Ora Good Cat. The latter is coming to Malaysia soon; it has made its Malaysian debut earlier this week, and we have published its preliminary specs and prices in a previous article.

Beyond size and performance metrics, Chery also asks you what should be a fair price for the model. Bear in mind that the Good Cat is (preliminarily) priced at RM 140k to RM 170k, while the Kona Electric range starts from RM 150k, and tops out at RM 200k.

The rest of the survey wants your opinions on things like the car's exterior and interior design, features you'd like to see, and customer profile. The survey is linked here, and we implore you to fill it in – it's not often an opportunity like this comes along.

While you're at it, do join Chery Malaysia's official groups for the Omoda 5 and Tiggo 7 too, for updates on their line-up.
