Startup Aiways presented a new crossover coupe for Europe

March 4, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Shanghai electric car startup introduces fans of environmentally friendly cars with its second novelty. This is a coupe-shaped crossover called U6 ion.

The young startup Aiways from the Celestial Empire already has one successful project – this is the U5 family electric crossover, which entered the series last year. Now the company is preparing another new product – the U6 ion cross-coupe, which will share the platform with the brand’s first-born. But the silhouette of the new items will be significantly different from the forms of its predecessor. Due to the sloping roof line that is fashionable today, the novelty will look tightened and sportier. The aerodynamic body kit and expressive spoiler on the tailgate complement the image.

 The famous Ken Okuyami, the ex-designer of Pininfarina, worked on the exterior of the electric car. Also, at one time he had a hand in the look of the legendary Ferrari Enzo.

Inside the car there are sports seats with improved lateral support, a dashboard display, an advanced media system and a helm that replaced the traditional steering wheel. There is no information about the power of the U6ion yet, but the power reserve is known – 500 kilometers. Due to the additional battery, the range can be increased by 120 kilometers, since the platform supports such an upgrade.

 The serial U6ion will appear by 2021. Commercial vehicles will be simpler than the concept. In particular, the helm here will give way to an ordinary steering wheel.
