Shanghai/Munich, November 3, 2021 – Shanghai based personal mobility provider Aiways will start selling its electric battery SUVs in Switzerland. Partnering with Alcomotive, Swiss car buyers will be able to order the all-electric Aiways U5 SUV online or from showrooms from beginning of next year.
Alcomotive is a joint venture between the Spanish Bergé Auto and the Belgian based Alcopa and will become the exclusive distributor for Aiways in Switzerland. As a pre-launch event, the Shanghai based EV brand will be present at the Zürich motor show.
COO Olivier Sermeus from Alcomotive commented: “We are honored and proud to add Aiways to our brand portfolio. With our distribution experience in Switzerland, we aim to establish an extensive Aiways dealer network and we are confident to make a success to the brand in the Swiss market.”
Dr. Alexander Klose, Executive Vice President of Overseas Operations at Aiways, commented: “We’ve had our eye on the Swiss market for a while now, and we are delighted to partner with Alcomotive. Our exciting products and their proven track record in sales and marketing will give us the best chance of attracting new EV buyers to the Aiways brand. Also, our 2022 European expansion is in full swing with Switzerland and there will be more markets to follow – even this year.”
Like in all other European markets (currently Aiways is available in: Italy, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Denmark and Germany) the Aiways U5 SUV will be joined by the Aiways U6 SUV-Coupé at the start of 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 year in Europe following the start of sales for the Aiways U6.

The U5 is produced at Aiways smart production facility in Shangrao – one of the most modern car production facilities in China.
