AIWAYS U5

Electric mobility for everyone.

As a young and innovative automotive start-up, our goal is to make EVs affordable for everyone. That’s why we have completely questioned and redefined the topic of mobility. When we designed the AIWAYS U5, we started with a white sheet of paper and concentrated entirely on making mobility as pleasant, exciting and affordable as possible.

So, we still cannot provide you with a carefree life – but we can absolutely provide you with a carefree drive. The AIWAYS U5 is our approach to making your daily life – your daily drives – more convenient. And we achieve this goal with some small but effective features.

Miracle of space

Space where you really need it: everywhere!

The AIWAYS U5 is designed to be affordable for everyone. As a Chinese SUV it is everything – and even more – you expect from a premium electric car. Even by European standards.

High access, huge panoramic roof


With a length of 4.68 meters, a width of 1.87 meters and a height of 1.70 meters, the AIWAYS U5 offers the typical high access of an SUV. Driver and front passenger are seated in comfortable high-quality seats. Even tall people (up to two meters) can enjoy absolute leg- and headroom. Not to mention the storage space under the center console (a glove compartment is also optionally available). A clear, structured and minimalist layout of the instruments, as well as the huge panoramic sunroof give an extra feeling of space and freedom.

The rear of the vehicle offers the passenger the opportunity to pleasantly relax. Even here, tall people have an almost unbelievable amount of leg- and headroom.

The electric tailgate with a foot sensor (also with a single push of a button) is already impressing with its non-existent loading threshold. This makes the volume of 432 liters extremely easy to load and unload. Under the loading floor there is another spacious compartment with storage space and even an additional space underneath. So, with the seats folded down, it is possible to achieve a loading volume of up to 1,555 liters.

High range

The AIWAYS U5 is powered by a 140 kW electric motor on the front axle, which generates 140 kW/197 h.p. with a torque of 315 Nm. The quick-charge function allows the battery, with a capacity of 63 kWh, to be charged from 30% to 80% within just 27 minutes (DC).

With the ‘sandwich structure’, we have improved the common automotive battery packs. There is an isolation plate between the ‘dry zone’ (the battery module) and the ‘wet zone’ (the cooling plate), which dramatically improves vehicle safety and battery stability.

While the cell module was developed by the world-famous supplier C-ATL, the pack was developed and constructed by Aiways. We also incorporated various other high-quality components from suppliers such as Bosch and others.

Since electric motors do not require as much maintenance as combustion engines, the first inspections will only be necessary after 100,000 km.

Guinness World Records™

Everyone can test a car under laboratory conditions. We also did. But we didn’t stop there. We wanted to do it the hard way – under real conditions.  

So, what did we do? We took a team of engineers and technicians, gave them two prototypes, and sent them off to Europe. On their 15,022 km drive from China to Germany, the team of 18 people crossed two continents, 13 borders and faced a lot of charging challenges. But in the end, they made it. This never-give-up attitude rewarded us with an entry in the Guinness World Records™ for the ‘longest journey by an electric vehicle (prototype)’.
