Affordable electrification Chery Omoda SUV Pioneers competitive pricing in New Zealand

Porsche Australia’s decision to phase out popular petrol models like the Macan, Boxster, and Cayman marks a significant pivot towards electrification, aligning with the brand’s ambitious goal of achieving 80% electric fleet by 2030.

This move, while indicative of the accelerating shift towards electric vehicles (EVs), raises questions about the readiness of markets like Australia for widespread EV adoption.

Meanwhile, the emergence of competitively priced EVs like Chery’s Omoda SUV in New Zealand hints at a potential breakthrough in affordability, prompting speculation about its viability as Australia’s best value EV.
