Aiways is a German-Chinese joint venture company based in Germany. The German
partner is Roland Gumpert. At the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show, Roland
Gumpert presented the racing version of the Gumpert Nathalie car supported by
his daughter Nathalie - who also gave her name to the super sports car series.
car features a reinforced drive train, improved aerodynamics and modifications
to the suspension, brake system and cooling. Gumpert's goal is to compete with
Nathalie Race in the FIA-approved EPCS series.
company was founded in 2017 as a joint venture, is based on one common vision:
to develop the world's first electrically-driven super sports car with racing
performance and intelligent energy technology. The Gumpert Nathalie is a
hydrogen-electric super sports car that cannot run out of gas. Its fuel cell
permanently generates electricity from a methanol-water mixture and is
therefore far superior to concepts that are bound to charging stations. The
Methanol Power Cell or MPC uses methanol as an energy source (4 hydrogen atoms,
1carbon atom, and 1 oxygen atom). By doing so, the dangers of liquid or gaseous
free hydrogen are avoided because it is highly explosive, volatile, and easily
vehicle has an all-wheel-drive with 4 engines and 2 forward gears: A motor
individually drives each wheel. A complex management system provides each wheel
with the necessary torque (torque vectoring). This enables extremely high
cornering speeds in curves. Traction losses of the wheels during
on both dry and wet road surfaces are electronically prevented. This improves
stability and driving safety significantly compared to conventionally powered
all-wheel-drive vehicles. Electric motors are installed in the center of the
vehicle instead of wheel hubs to keep the unsprung masses low.
AIWAYS will launch the Nathalie super sports car in an exclusive small series
from 2020 onward, which is approved for road use.
