Aiways U5 2019
Body Type = SUV
Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs) grew in popularity in the early 1990s due to the Ford Explorer making insane sales figures. However, due to their gas-guzzling qualities, their popularity wained over time, but with the advent of electric vehicles (EVs) hitting the market, EV SUVs have grown in popularity once again due to the Tesla Model X and Audi e-Tron SUVs being perceived well by critics and fans alike.
Drive Train = FWD
Front Wheel Drive or FWD for short means the car's drivetrain is delivered by the front axel of the car. Cars that are FWD are generally more nimble and responsive which suits body styles like crossovers and hatchbacks. FWD cars generally get better mileage (EV or Gas/Petrol) which makes them popular in Europe or areas where roads are narrow and fuel is expensive.

Aiways U5 2019 Overview

What Separates Aiways U5 2019

Being more of newcomer brand to the market it is now wonder that the range is all about trying to present decent specs while still a bit overprices for now.

Not a top of the line yet a mid level thanks to its range still and in spite of somewhat good to decent specs and metrics across the board simply due to the small size and still average performance this makes Aiways U5 2019 a very mid level option especially considering its very high price and the fact that the range stayed the same preventing it from going to a top-of-the-line market even despite its swanky premium looks. Though it centers on being an all-around car offering some sufficient metrics – it is grossly overpriced compared to what it has to offer – especially directly compared to though a tad bigger yet similar Tesla Model X or Model S to some sort.

Still obviously to see how exactly good it is compared to other EVs on the market and other variants of cheaper tiers, it is crucial to see the specific metrics. Based on that the comparison between the Aiways U5 2019 differences with other upcoming variants in the range just as well as other EVs come down to acceleration, the electric range, charging time and additional minor ones looking pretty major nevertheless. Based on a direct comparison to the preceding hybrid variants specs this is a step up so major in terms of performance and power that it immediately catapults this bigger size SUV into a mid level option class among its size class EVs. Kind of slow compared to other EVs 8.8 seconds getting from 0 to 6o miles – staying ways above the standard on the market by some good measure yet it has a cost disadvantage over it. Fortunately it stays above to what some other EV SUVs deliver it is in the neighbourhood of EPA certified electric range of somewhat mid level acceptable 250 miles. This variant definitely seems like a much better range option fit even for some long distance yet not the interstate traveling.

Mentioning its charging capabilities this range does deliver a fairly quick result. It is capable of going from 0 to 100 percent in approximately 12 hours.

About The U5
  The Aiways EV Range As soon as Tesla hit it bit with the release of their revolutionary Tesla Model S back in 2012 and so single-handedly created a personal use EV market it was obvious that it will be meeting a competition of some sort from big old established brands. Yet as many of those slacked for years on the opportunity to compete with Tesla in this new huge market a few brand new players came up with the Chinese Aiways being exactly one of those. Unsurprisingly and similarly to how many big established brands also from Germany like Audi and BMW that decided to branch out its EV production and its ranges to include different car types from CUV hatchbacks to SUVs and sports cars, the Aiways range will be pretty much all about the same car and size class carrying on what their first variant of the U5 model was a mid-size SUV type of a car. And while its performance and comforta are considerably decent and beat out even some more established mid-size EVs on the market based on a very high price being a first range this is not a top-of-the-line yet a more of a mid level of the market at best. Surely targeting both the newcomers to the EV market based on the car size and also EV owners looking for a second car, the Aiways range is meant to be more of a personal use or a big sports car more than anything. Still it was the range that inserted and is keeping Aiways in the EV conversation. On top of that when surely being in the game of competing with the market leader Tesla, it is crucial to compare the Aiways range to that brand both in terms of specs and looks. So comparing how technically and technologically, not even mentioning comfort wise did this range get to Tesla it might be not a very close call as it lacks behind Model S it copies significantly. With its AWD with 2 or more motors depending on the specific variant of the range it is definitely most comparable to Tesla Model X or Tesla Model S as a similar class-performance option. For sure we are not skipping the looks as well - we can say that just like Tesla yet with a less minimalistic and more of a budget smart approach, Aiways has gone the more of a minimalistic route and made its range look more simplified and minimalistic. Its range has both a somewhat minimalistic futuristic body form as a sedan and a very minimalistic yet stylish interior finsh with some premium options. Aware of the fact that the looks and design are very important for any car range for sure, the specs and performance are truly everything. Based on just judging the Aiways range on the merit of it specs and metrics, let's take a look at specs. Depending on the specific variant in the range it starting electric range and acceleration vary, as it starts o to 60 at very much so slow even for its size class 8.8 seconds which is not the greatest at all yet works as a mid level spec for those who don't care about the speed too much. Fortunately where it is kind of average to lackluster in terms of max speed or acceleration or other show-off features, it s;ightly surpises and gains in range to improve the impression. More power and performance metrics that make it truly stand out from the rest, including the ever so important for EVs range. This tranlsates to when the journey has already begun, it will deliver you as far as the official EPA rated range of up to 250mi without a single recharge. This sort of puts it into a strong competition with the likes of other same size cars as it allows for almost all type of traveling including even some interstate. It easily can be categotized as somewhar lower priced than a few other smal sized EVs, which might make buyers or people new to the EV world ignore a lack of some things other top-of-the-line ranges in or close to its size class like Tesla Model X or Model S or other offer at a higher cost. Never forget to check out its multiple top features such as:
  • High-resolution touchscreen

  • Spacious interior for its class
  • High level cargo volume for its class
  • Driver-assistance features
that combined together make for a very satifsfying feeling when inside it on the road.
