Shanghai/Munich, December 15, 2021 – Shanghai-based personal mobility provider Aiways will start selling its electric SUVs in Sweden. Partnering with Andersen Motors, Swedish car buyers will be able to order the all-electric Aiways U5 SUV from January 2022.
Andersen Motors is a well-established name in the Scandinavian automotive industry and is already responsible for the Aiways sales and distribution network in Denmark. CEO Stig Jensen commented: “We are really looking forward to starting sales in Sweden. We believe the Aiways U5 SUV has great potential in the Swedish market, which, in many ways, is comparable to the Danish market when it comes to public interest in electric mobility. The acceptance of the U5 SUV and our current achievements underlines that the Aiways brand has a promising future in Sweden.”
Dr. Alex Klose, Executive Vice President of Overseas Operations at Aiways, added: “We’re delighted to expand our work with Andersen Motors and add Sweden as our latest and now northernmost market in Europe. This should be the last addition to our European network in 2021, and we hope EV buyers in Sweden consider the news to be an early Christmas present. Watch this space for more market news in 2022 – we will fill many more blank spaces.”
Aiways was the first electric vehicle start-up from China to start selling cars in Europe and continues to grow its presence on the continent. Aiways is set to sell the U5 all-electric SUV in ten European markets – with Sweden joining Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland.
Across all markets, the Aiways U5 SUV will be joined by the Aiways U6 SUV-Coupé in 2022. Both models are all-electric, offering accessible zero emissions motoring, long range and class-leading practicality. Aiways intends to release one new electric vehicle per calendar year in Europe.
Founded in 2017, Aiways is a Shanghai-based personal mobility provider with its European HQ in Munich, Germany. It was the first Chinese startup to introduce an electric vehicle to the European market with the launch of the U5 in 2020 – a battery-electric SUV with impressive range, style, and quality. Aiways continues its expansion in Europe and beyond: order books are open in Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, France, Israel, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, and Italy – with more markets to follow. The U5 SUV is produced at Aiways smart production facility in Shangrao – one of the most modern car production facilities in China. With an initial production capacity of 150,000 units per annum, Aiways can increase this number to 300,000 units when global EV demand rises. Aiways’ next model for Europe will be the U6 electric SUV-Coupé. With a focus on class-leading aerodynamics, intelligent technology, and sporty design, the U6 SUV-Coupé investigates the exciting future of the Aiways brand.
