Aiways adds a second model to its Dutch delivery range. The Aiways U5 will be joined by the Aiways U6, an electrically powered SUV with a steeply sloping roofline of which AutoWeek can inform you of the starting price before Aiways announces it itself.

Until now, the U5 was the only car of the Chinese Aiways. That is no longer the case. In October, Aiways finally unveiled the version of the U6 intended for the European market. Like the U5, the Aiways U6 is an electrically powered SUV, but unlike the U5 presented in 2020, it has a more steeply sloping roofline. The Aiways U6 costs a minimum of €48,950 in the Netherlands.

For just under 49 grand you get a 4.81 meter long electric SUV with a wheelbase of 2.8 meters. Although the wheelbase of the U6 is the same as that of the U5, it is about thirteen centimeters longer. The Aiways U6 has a 218 hp and 315 Nm strong electric motor, making it slightly more powerful than the 204 hp U5. Like the U5, the Aiways U6 has a 63 kWh battery pack in its bottom. There, the SUV squeezes out a WLTP range of 400 kilometers. In that respect, the U6 loses out to the U5, which comes up to 415 kilometers on a full battery pack. In just under 7 seconds, the Aiways U6 zooms to a speed of 100 km/h. The Aiways U5 needs 7.8 seconds for the same sprint.
