Aiways U6, new details on the electric SUV coupe

The debut of the new electric all-wheel drive Aiways U6 in Europe is fast approaching. Now, the Chinese automaker wanted to share some additional details about its new model. Apparently, this vehicle features a new in-house developed AI-PT (Aiways Powertrain) permanent magnet synchronous electric motor. The new unit, compared to the one used on the U5 we tried, is more compact and lighter. The Chinese automaker claims to have saved 15% of its weight. Alexandre Klose, Executive Vice President of Overseas Operations at Aiways, commented: AI-PT is something very special. It makes us one of the few auto manufacturers that designs and builds powertrains. In this way, we not only achieve the best possible integration into the car, but we guarantee a real advantage over the competition thanks to our innovative power. You will not find our engine in other vehicles. First specs The manufacturer has also shared some interesting data about the new Aiways U6 all-wheel drive electric vehicle. Thanks to the new engine, this model will be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 6.9 seconds. A model will be proposed for the European market with a 63 kWh battery consisting of 24 units with cells supplied by CATL. This compound can be recharged, in direct current, up to a maximum power of 90 kW. At alternating current, on the other hand, up to 11 kW. The new model is based on the MAS (More Adaptable Chassis) platform which can be used as a base not only for any type of chassis work but also in configurations that require a different arrangement of the engine. Finally, Aiways explains that in order to improve the efficiency of the new electric Coupé SUV, it has worked hard on optimum temperature management. For the AI-PT, this is managed by a new heat exchanger that not only cools the engine, but optimally uses the residual heat. The heat energy emitted by the engine is neither unused nor dispersed in the environment, but is used to heat the passenger compartment or cool the battery pack. This solution increases battery life and makes it less constrained by the outside temperature. video
