Chery signs CKD deal with Inokom; Omoda 5, Tiggo 8 Pro to be assembled in Kulim, June launch 01

Chery Malaysia have inked a deal with Inokom Corporation, opening up the brand's local assembly in Malaysia. 

This signing entails Chery cars to be locally-assembled (CKD) in Kulim, Kedah. The first two models of Chery Malaysia here will be the Chery Tiggo 8 Pro large SUV, as well as the smaller Omoda 5.

Lofty ambitions follow, as Chery plans to make Malaysia the region's assembly hub, producing cars with internal combustion engines (ICE), battery electric vehicles (BEVs), and plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) for certain export markets.
