E-car manufacturer Aiways: Conquering new markets quickly-manufacturer

Chinese automaker Aiways has closed a new round of financing worth hundreds of millions of dollars, reaffirming its commitment to rapid growth and expanding into new markets. This is according to a statement from the company.

It is further stated that the new investments have led to a restructuring of the board. This is to accommodate global growth plans for 2022 and beyond. Long-time shareholder Chen Xuanlin (William Chen) has been appointed chairman of Aiways. According to the company, he had decisively driven the growth of Aiways since it was founded in 2017. In addition to Chen, Zhang Yang (Charlie Zhang), a former vice president of Nio, has also been appointed to the Aiways board. Both Chen and Zhang have extensive experience in the automotive industry and have long advocated for electric vehicles and the transition to sustainable mobility.

As the statement further states, Dr. Alexander Klose confirmed as Vice President of Overseas based in Shanghai and Munich. He will continue to be responsible for the brand’s growth strategy, which he started in Europe and other global markets. Samuel Fu, the founder of Aiways, will continue to serve as President from Shanghai.

The Aiways strategy will continue to focus on new markets, new products and sustainable mobility in the future. The digital competence of the brand is also to be further developed. According to Aiways, the U5 SUV and the U6 SUV coupe will be offered across all markets this year. The carmaker wants to bring a new electric vehicle to the European market every year in the future.

According to Aiways, it was the first start-up for electric vehicles from China to start selling in Europe. Since then, the company has continuously expanded its presence in Europe. Airways is currently selling the all-electric U5 in ten European markets – Belgium, Denmark, Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland, plus Israel. Other markets are to follow in the course of 2022.

  1. A U5 was standing next to me at the HPC the other day
    SoC below 50% and loaded with not even 40 kw. Long-distance suitability should therefore be at the level of an eGolf or worse.

    if you can live with that, you probably get a good and cheap car – it looked good from the inside. Good on the outside too

  2. I see the AC charging capacity as sufficient for me, as soon as my 5Kw photovoltaic delivers I charge, and to 40 kw charge in the other comment I only say it depends on the charge level of the battery, at 60% the charging capacity goes to 40%.Have a good trip everyone!
