Aiways U5 Specs and Details, affordable electric SUV from China

The Aiways U5 will hit the German market in 2020: an SUV with an electric drive that is particularly interesting in terms of price. First photos, information and prices.

  • Available in Germany from around 40,000 euros

  • Innovative battery with 63 kWh capacity

  • 400 km range possible according to WLTP

It was a very special maiden voyage when two prototypes of the Aiways U5 left China for Europe on July 17, 2019 . After 53 days of driving, the two electric SUVs arrived in Frankfurt am Main. The distance covered was around 15,000 kilometers.

The average travel load per day was 283 kilometers . Not much compared to what you are used to from a petrol or diesel car. But the road and traffic conditions weren\\\’t always the best on the route. And you certainly couldn\\\’t fall back on a perfectly developed network of quick charging stations . In this respect, the journey was a real pioneering achievement.

Future base price still unclear

The price is certainly a strong argument for the Aiways U5 . So far, the media has given 35,000 euros. And that would be an unrivaled low competitive price. But when asked, it turns out that the car will not be available from us under 40,000 euros (basic version), said the press officer for Germany.

The scope of equipment included in the basic price will only become apparent when the configurator is activated. At least it is clear that the basic version will only have front-wheel drive . After all, the key technical data should now be reliable.
