NIO ET7 EV
In the first quarter of 2020, Chinese EV automaker Nio had almost gotten knocked out of the auto scene. But, thanks to an investment of $1 billion from the local government, Nio managed to get a second lease on life. It revealed the updated version of its electric, the ES8, and there’s no looking back ever since. Nio is growing leaps and bounds and the launch of its latest EV is a testimony to that.
The new electric sedan is called ET7. It will be offered with three different battery sizes, with the biggest of them all claiming to deliver 620 miles on a single charge! With pretty decent performance figures and tech features, can the ET7 take on the Tesla Model S successfully?
2021 Nio EC6
Heavily based on the ES6, NIO’s new SUV-coupé is for the boxier ES6 what the BMW X6 is to the X5, the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe to the GLE, the Porsche Cayenne Coupe to the Cayenne, you get the gist. Or, in NIO’s own words, a ‘young, dynamic and progressive’ car.
Marketing and PR blabber aside, the EC6 is nothing more than the sloped-roof, less-headroom-in-the-rear-seat, hunchback-y version of the ES6. Unveiled during the ‘Believe in Better NIO Day 2019’ event in front of a large audience, the EC6 gets NIO’s latest offering in the battery pack department, namely a 100-kWh liquid-cooled thermostatic unit. Join us as we take an in-depth look at the NIO EC6 SUV-coupé.
2019 Nio ES6
Odds are you remember the Nio name from the EP9 performance machine that dropped late in 2017. Now, Nio is offering up the ES6, a follow-up to the Chinese-based EV producer’s larger ES8 SUV, framing it as a smaller five-door packed with an impressive EV powertrain, a sumptuous interior, and sharp exterior styling, not to mention a host of advanced tech features to soothe and entertain its passengers.
2019 Nio EP9
Founded in 2014 in Shanghai, China, Nio has quickly grown to become a major industry player, establishing itself as a force to be reckoned with in the world of electric vehicles and self-driving technology. Boasting over 2,000 employees spread out over 13 locations globally, Nio is known for creations like Eve, a forward-thinking autonomous concept, and the ES8, a seven-passenger high-performance all-electric SUV, as well as its involvement in the Formula E championship with powertrain support for the Nio 003 race car. However, the start-up is best known for this – the EP9, a high-performance all-electric speed machine aimed squarely at all things quick and internal combustion-propelled. Inspired by the FIA’s Le Mans Prototype regulations, the Nio EP9 is street legal, but has made a name for itself setting some very impressive records on the track, including a sprint around the Nurburgring’s north loop in just 6 minutes, 45 seconds, a run around the Circuit Paul Ricard in 1 minute 52.78 seconds, and a lap of the Circuit of the Americas in 2 minutes 1.11 seconds. Granted, these records were done on track-only slick tires, but it’s impressive stuff all the same.
So then – what makes this thing tick? Is it just an overblown blender, or is there more to it? Read on for the details.
