A new Chinese car brand that’s partnering with a well-known east Auckland dealership is the world’s fastest-growing automotive brand.

Omoda Jaecoo vehicles are being sold locally at the Winger Motor Group dealership in East Tamaki.

The company is headquartered in Wuhu, China, and was launched in 2022 as a division of the Chinese state-owned automobile manufacturer Chery.

New Zealand’s Omoda Jaecoo country manager Sheldon Humphries says it’s “setting new standards for excellence and innovation with a highly competitive fleet”.

The Chinese automotive giant announced its latest sales figures at the 18th annual Beijing International Automotive Exhibition.

Omoda Jaecoo global sales volume has exceeded 160,000 units, the fastest ever for an automotive brand in just one year.

The announcement is based on market expansion results and sales data released during the conference in China.

Humphries says it took the two brands just five months to reach the 50,000-unit milestone and another three months to hit 100,000 units.

This accolade is a testament to our commitment to providing vehicles that deliver the best of tech, innovation, and style.

We’re only at the beginning of our journey in Aotearoa and we’re excited to be taking Kiwis on that with us.”

Starting from $29,990, the Omoda C5 is available with a turbocharged 1.5-litre engine and a more powerful 1.6-litre engine, along with advanced technology such as the dual 10.25-inch screens and an AI voice command system, adding a “futuristic touch” to any ride.

The Omoda E5 BX is priced from $47,990, the lowest recommended retail price for a full battery electric vehicle in the New Zealand market.

The Omoda E5 features an eco-friendly lithium iron-phosphate battery with a 430km range and rapid 30 per cent to 80 per cent charging in just 28 minutes.

Omoda Jaecoo is represented in 40 markets worldwide, with 873 dealer showrooms across its dealer network.
