Omoda 3 planned for 2026 with aggressive styling

To say that Chery moves at a breakneck pace would be a complete understatement. Having just launched the Omoda 5 last year and the electric E5 this year, the crossover sub-brand – yes, it’s technically separated from the main Chery brand – unveiled the larger Omoda 7 this week. Now we know there’s going to be an Omoda 3 soon too!

Expect it to have “mega” styling, said Shawn Xu, Omoda & Jaecoo global CEO in a press session in Wuhu, China. The image (above) used at the dealer conference is clearly of an early design sketch/concept, but it’s certainly a wild looking crossover worthy of that description. We’ll have to wait and see to find out how much of it will filter through to the production version.

Omoda 3 planned for 2026 with aggressive styling

As for when that would be, we should be looking at 2026 at the very earliest, as the Omoda 3 is not listed on the 2024/2025 launch table (above) presented to dealers here. What is listed however, is the Omoda 7 PHEV as well as the Omoda E5 facelift, both scheduled for 2025.

Also unknown is how the Omoda 3 will actually fit into Chery Malaysia’s range. With the Omoda 5 priced to take on the Proton X50 and the upcoming Tiggo 4 slated to rival the Perodua Ativa and Honda WR-V, your guess is as good as ours as to where the new O3 will be positioned.
