Aiways introduced a new coupe crossover for EuropeMarch 3, 2020
The Chinese company has prepared for the world premiere of a new conceptual crossover, which is designed for the European market.
Aiways coupe-like novelty, dubbed the U6ion Electric Concept, was developed under the leadership of eminent designer Ken Okuyama, who, among other things, left his mark on Enzo Ferrari. The U6 Ion concept serves as a prospect for an SUV with a very sloping roofline. Earlier, the company introduced the U5 model for Europe. As in the case of the latter, the U6ion is equipped with an electric motor and is created on the same MAS platform (more adaptable structure) of aluminum and steel, completely developed by Aiways engineers.
In the center of the dashboard is a 14.6-inch display related to the infotainment system. The sphere above it is not a webcam, but a robot acting as a digital assistant. In a cabin filled with orange details, we are faced with amazing things, such as hinges for opening doors, and between the seats of the rear passengers there is a place to store things where you can place your drones and corresponding remote controls, Aiways reports.
Aiways hopes to gain a foothold in Europe with all-electric models. In the spring of next year, a Chinese startup plans to launch the U5 Ion crossover on the European market. Moreover, the management makes optimistic plans for the sale of the car – for the first year it is planned to sell 10 thousand cars at once.
Soplatform “younger brother” U5 will be higher in the line of models of the brand. As for the performance of the U6, the automaker keeps the specifications a secret. However, it is possible that the novelty will borrow the filling from U5. The latter has a battery capacity of 65 kW / h and, according to preliminary estimates, has a range of 400 km (WLTP). So far, the price should be guided by the mark of 35 thousand euros, but time will tell how accurate this information is.
