Nio has removed its new electric crossover, the Nio ES6, during its race on the world’s most dangerous and famous Nürburgring circuit. The video discusses how the electric car behaved on the track, how much its battery ran out and how often the power of the power plant dropped during a race on the race track.

At the start of the race, Nio ES6 came out with a 58% charged battery, which would be enough for 247 kilometers. At the end of the race, the on-board computer showed 124 kilometers, or approximately 29% of the charge. According to the driver, after the first four minutes of driving in combat mode, he felt that the brakes were overheated. Note that this is a very common occurrence for electric vehicles due to the increased mass and the included stability control system, which slows down the slipping wheels.

Around the middle of the track, the car lost power and limited its top speed to 150 km / h. Surely this was due to the heating of the battery – in this case, the electric car turns on overheating protection so that nothing happens to the battery. After a few kilometers, the power increased again to its previous values.

Overall, the driver said he liked the Nio ES6’s handling and predictability. At the same time, all of the above problems are the most common in all environmentally friendly models when driving in an aggressive style. Recall that the electric car is equipped with two variants of the power plant with a capacity of 435 and 545 hp. The power reserve depends on the size of the battery and is 420, 430, 490 and 510 kilometers.
