AIWAYS U5 First Drive

Elliot takes the Aiways U5 for a drive to find out if it could be the answer to those looking for a practical and affordable EV.

It looks modern and has been designed to be efficient. It might lack the bells and whistles of other more luxurious EVs on the market, but it does everything you need it to for a really good price.
