The young Chinese manufacturer Aiways unveils its second production model: after the U5 electric SUV, it’s time for the U6 zero-emission coupe SUV!
And two! The young Chinese manufacturer Aiways unveils its second production model . After the U5 electric SUV , available in France for several months , the brand presents the U6, a cut SUV, still zero emissions .
This is the production version of the U6 ion concept which was presented in the summer of 2020 at the auto show in Chengdu, China.
A Japanese manga SUV
Based on the same MAS (More Adaptable Structure) platform as the U5, the U6 displays a most dynamic style . On the menu: fluid lines, a massive front end, a high beltline, sharp lights, large air intakes and large wheels. Without forgetting of course a plunging roofline typical of coupes. Like the original concept, the vehicle seems to come straight out of a Japanese manga.
A minimalist interior
Inside, the atmosphere is on the other hand a little more traditional and even draws towards the minimalist with a refined dashboard and an instrument cluster reduced to its simplest expression. We note all the same the presence of a very large central touch screen and above all of an imposing control selector in the style of a luxury yacht. An induction smartphone charging system, customizable lighting and wraparound seats are also on board.
At the end of the year in Europe
Aiways said nothing on the other hand about the technical sheet of the machine. On the engine side, the U6 could however take over the 204 hp electric unit from the U5 and claim a range of more than 400, or even 500 km, thanks in particular to a 63 kWh battery and very sophisticated aerodynamics. One thing is certain: the vehicle will arrive at our place. It will be marketed in China and Europe by the end of the year .
