Indeed, the revelation of this car is done with several figures and notably a new record for an electric car on the Nurburgring at 7: 05.120 instead of 7.22 for the electric car TMG EV P002.
The two battery packs are placed on the side parts of the car, on each side of the carbon-cockpit chassis that only weighs 165kg! These two battery packs make it possible to have a driver installed at the lowest height with a lowered gravity threshold and an additional function, the possibility of changing the batteries in 8 minutes for race or track days, while the recharge takes 45 minutes.
The NIO EP9 is powered by four electric motors controlled by four independent gearboxes delivering a total of 1360hp and 6334nm. Its suspension is adjustable in 4 points for performances worthy of the leading hybrid hypercars from McLaren, Porsche and Ferrari: 313kph max speed and especially a 0 to 200kph in 7.1
Its active rear wing allows to obtain a downforce 2x more important than on the F1
The NextEV company is likely to use the NIO EP9 as an image model because with their eco-friendly communication, their commitment to Formula E and their offices in Shanghai, San Jose, London and Munich, we can imagine a full range of models soon !!
