This is the Aiways U6 electric coupe SUV. It is the second model built by a Chinese startup called Aiways with an NEDC cruising range of over 650km.
Its reservation opened on July 28 with a 6,000 RMB (880 USD) deposit. The first 1,666 customers who reserve a U6 can enjoy a 10,000 RMB (1,400 USD) discount, lifetime warranty, and free vehicle charging equipment.
The car comes in 7 body colors. There are three trim levels: Play (63kWh battery, 503km NEDC), Cyber Play (72kWh battery, 580km NEDC), Top Play (88kWh battery, 650km NEDC), all driven by a 160kW 315Nm motor.
The Play and Cyber Play trims slow charge from 0% – 97% in between 11 – 14.5hr and fast charge from 30% – 80% in 30 and 40 minutes, respectively. The Top Play fast charges in only 27 minutes.
The car is highly recognizable with its funky yellow and black color coordination. The size of the Aiways U6 is 4805/1880/1641 mm with a 2800mm wheelbase.
The front face adopts a closed X-shaped design. Its drag coefficient is as low as 0.26cd.
The interior of the Aiways U6 comes with a huge 14.6-inch floating touch screen and a small but ultra-wide 8.2-inch digital instrument cluster. There is a full suite of 27 safety driving functions, including not-so-common features such as AI- cruise, traffic jam assist, and narrow road protection. There is a camera above the A-pillar of the vehicle to monitor the driver while driving and give reminders when the driver experiences fatigue.
Furthermore, the Aiways U6 is equipped with 15 speakers.
The vehicle is built on Aiways’ self-developed pure electric MAS platform, with a maximum power of 160kW (217 horsepower), peak torque of 315Nm, and a 0 – 100km/h acceleration time of fewer than 7 seconds. The Aiways U6 is equipped with CATL’s high energy density CTP (cell-to-pack) battery, with a 650km NEDC cruising range.
