Following up on its promise of adding new models and variants to the range, OMODA has launched the C5 GT limited edition that starts at R589 000 and has a sportier appearance with a lower front bumper, a split front headlight design, T-shaped daytime running lights and matrix LED taillights.

Shannon Gahagan, National Brand and Marketing Manager of OMODA SA, says: "The GT offers up to eight different exterior customisations, enabling owners to personalise their vehicle to match their unique style and the model features a gold logo and rear gold GT badge, with optional 18-inch high-gloss black and gold sports rims." 

The OMODA C5 GT boasts a Kunpeng 1,6-litre turbo-charged engine and a 7DCT transmission, equipped with advanced technologies such as the iHEC intelligent combustion system, low-inertia turbo and an electric actuator.

With a maximum power output of 145 kW and peak torque of 290 Nm, it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 7,8 seconds.

The vehicle's 12V start-stop function and independent rear suspension enhance fuel efficiency during short stops and increase wheel traction for improved comfort. Additionally, it features a convenient 50 W fast wireless charging pad for efficient, hassle-free device charging. 

"We have seen unprecedented demand for the OMODA C5 GT – it truly has been nothing short of remarkable," continues Gahagan. This overwhelming response underscores the vehicle's exceptional allure and appeal.

"South Africa holds a pivotal position within OMODA's strategic markets. With the introduction of this new model, OMODA is dedicated to delivering a heightened level of futuristic sophistication and intelligent mobility solutions to our valued local customers.

“Looking ahead, OMODA remains committed to its forward-thinking approach and ongoing technological innovation. We aim to expand our automotive ecosystem, fostering deeper connections with global users, and providing thrilling driving experiences that define a new era of travel and lifestyle."
