My friends at electrive always had that inside EV flow. So they reported that there are ambitious plans by the Sino-German EV startup Aiways are becoming more tangible. The first volume production model will be the electric SUV Aiways U5 Ion, which will hit the Chinese market in September 2019, and Germany starting in 2020.
The startup is held up by the German engineer RolandGumpert, the product manager for the 2017 founded Chinese firm and CEO of the German counterpart.
Regarding the technical data behind the Aiways U5 Ion the following is already known – the vehicle has an electric motor mounted above the front axle, with a performance capacity of 140 kW and 315 Nm torque, which does not put a particularly impressive track performance in mind. The acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h can be done in “under ten seconds”, according to the manufacturers. Where the vehicle does impress is the price – €25,000 is significantly under the price for any comparable market competitor.
