The Aiways U5 starts its marketing in Spain officially by Astara (formerly Bergé) after a few months being available through parallel import. This Chinese electric has achieved good sales data in some European markets.
The initial offer of the Aiways U5 is limited to one electric motorization with 204 CV of power which is combined with a lithium-ion battery with 63 kWh capacity. It has simple traction to the front axle and automatic gearbox.
As indicated the brand this model can travel 410 km with a single charge (depending on versions), declaring an average consumption of 16.6 kWh/100. For recharging, it admits 90 kW in continuous current and incorporates a 6.6 kW on-board charger, a power perhaps somewhat fair for a pure electric.
In Spain the initial offer consists of the Xcite and Prime finishes. From the simplest they have LED headlights, lane warning and assistant, pre-collision warning, automatic city braking, blind spot monitor, adaptive cruise control, sign reader, 360º camera, pedestrian detector and traffic jam assistant.
Also standard are the automatic climate control, keyless access, push button start, rain sensor, self-tinting interior mirror, multimedia system with 12.3-inch screen, Apple CarPlay, bluetooth, USB, alloy wheels, remote services, etc.
The Prime finish adds to the above the front seats with electric adjustment, heated seats, double panoramic sunroof, leather upholstery, electrically operated tailgate, tinted windows, etc. Considering the additional equipment it is worth the extra cost.
The recommended prices are as follows (without discounts or MOVES III Plan):
- U5 204 hp AT Xcite €40,900
- U5 204 hp AT Prime €43,900
