JERUSALEM, Nov. 4 (Xinhua) -- An Israeli car dealership will import electric cars from Chinese carmaker Aiways Automobiles, the daily newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth reported on Wednesday.

The Aiways electric car model that will be sold in Israel is the European version of U5, a zero-emission SUV (sport utility vehicle) that was unveiled in March.

The 63-kWh battery capacity gives the U5 a minimum driving range of 400 km.

Aiways was established in 2017 and headquartered in the city of Shanghai. It also has sales and R&D centers in Munich, Germany, as well as an R&D center and manufacturing base in Aalborg, Denmark.

The imported U5 car will be sold in Israel for about 200,000 new shekels (about 58,500 U.S. dollars).

The cars will be imported by the Israeli Blilious Group, which also imports Chinese buses manufactured by the Xiamen Golden Dragon Bus company. Enditem
