Aiways Automobile is a startup from China. Founded in 2017, Aiways is not far behind in terms of time. However, AIWAYS does not seem to pay much attention to the Chinese market. In 2020, the annual sales volume of Aiways in the Chinese market is 2,600; in 2021, it is 3,011; in 2022, new energy vehicles rised completely, and it is not surprising that the monthly sales of many Chinese new energy vehicle brands exceed 10,000. With only more than 7,000 units sold in two and a half years, the gap between AIWAYS and its competitors is widening.
