Chery E5 was developed as an upgraded version of the Cowin 3, which, in turn, was derived from the A5. Launched in Shanghai in April 2011, the compact sedan hit the market three months later.
The ACTECO 1.5L and 1.8L engines were founded on both the Cowin 3 and E5, while only the latter gets a CVT. Priced slightly higher above the Cowin 3, the E5 comes with one-touch engine start system, front and rear parking sensors, GPS, and boneless windshield wipers.
In February 2014, it was reported that Chery signed an agreement with Ukraine’s ZAZ, a subsidiary of UkrAuto, on building the E5 and Tiggo in the east European country.
64,241 units of the E5 were sold in 2012; 5,0211 units in 2013. Chery terminated the production of E5 in 2014.
