January 10, 2021 0 By autotimesnews

At the NIO Day event, the Chinese company NIO showed a new flagship electric sedan – ET7, built on the basis of the NIO ET Preview concept.

For the novelty, two batteries are offered with a capacity of 70 and 100 kW / h, respectively. The first battery provides a cruising range of up to 500 km, and the second – up to 700 km. At the same time, in the future, a 150 kW / h battery will become available, which will allow the model to drive up to 1000 km on a single charge on the NEDC cycle.

The new car has two electric motors, one on each axle, producing 400 kW (543 hp) and 850 Nm of torque. It is capable of accelerating to 100 km / h in 3.99 seconds. As for the interior of the novelty, it is quite comfortable thanks to heated chairs, ventilation and massage, a glass roof. In addition, there is a modern instrument panel, a 12.8-inch center display and 23 speakers, and “invisible” smart air vents in both the front and rear rows.

The new car has acquired the world’s first UWB digital key. That is, now when a motorist with such a key approaches the car, the retractable handle from the driver’s side pops up, the doors are unlocked and slightly opened. Along with this ET7 has an autopilot system consisting of eight cameras, lidar and NIO Super OS. Autopilot will be offered by subscription for RMB 680 per month.

Taking orders for the NIO ET7 has already started, with the first deliveries scheduled for early 2022. Model cost ranges from RMB 448,000 – RMB 526,000

In addition, some time ago it was reported that the owners of Nio electric vehicles will be able to switch to a more powerful battery by subscription. It should be emphasized that this service offered by the Chinese company is called BaaS (Battery as a Service).
