After important financial difficulties, Nio has done more splendidly than ever in the past few months. At first, the share price went through the roof within a few months, then the Chinese celebrated record approvals at the end of 2020. A lot of buzz for the new Nio ET7, the first electric sedan from the Chinese automaker, which will arrive in 2022.
The design of the electric luxury model is awesome and the 1,000 km of autonomy will cause the competition a lot of headaches thanks to a brand new 150Kwh solid-state battery. As with the other models, Nio uses a battery exchange system. By the end of the year, 500 such exchange stations are to be built in China, which should save you the tedious charging processes in everyday life. Up to 321 battery packs can be changed per day at each of the charging stations.
The 5.09 meter long and stately 1.98-meter wide NIO ET7 electric car is powered by two electric motors. The front electric engine has an output of 180 kW while at the rear electric motor with 300 kW.
From a standing start, it goes to 100 km / h in 3.9 seconds and the electric four-wheel drive should come to a stop after 33.5 meters from the same speed.
The small battery pack with 70 kWh should enable ranges of around 500 kilometres. Much more interesting for most customers are the two larger battery packs with 100 kWh and even 150 kWh (as solid-state batteries), with which the Nio ET7 can achieve ranges of 700 and 1,000 kilometres without recharging. The solid-state battery of the top model, installed for the first time in a production vehicle, has an energy density of 360 Wh / kg.
