Say hello to the Nio EC6 with 382 miles of range
In China, too, people love electric SUVs!
The craze for coupé SUVs is also present in China and local manufacturer Nio has unveiled the new EC6 in Shenzhen. Like any coupe SUV, the EC6 has a long hood and a roof line that leaks to the rear. The vehicle also adopts flush door handles and two-level headlights. The taillights look like the ones on BMWs.
The EC6 also features a large panoramic roof and an excellent drag coefficient of 0.27. In the sporty Performance version, the EC6 will be equipped with two electric motors producing a combined output of 536 hp. The EC6 will go from 0 to 62 mph in just 4.7 seconds. With the large 100 kWh battery, the EC6 will offer a range of 382 miles on the old NEDC certification cycle, or approximately 250 to 280 miles on the WLTP cycle.
In addition, there is an updated version of the ES8 with updated styling and revised engines and equipment. Inside, for example, there is a 9.8-inch digital display and an 11.3-inch portrait format infotainment system. A new wireless charger is also being introduced.
The ES8 is equipped with two electric motors with up to 536 hp. It goes from 0 to 62 mph in 4.9 seconds and has a range of 360 miles, again with the old NEDC certification cycle. The first deliveries of the ES8 will take place in April and those of the EC6 in September with standard batteries. The models ordered with the 100 kWh battery will not be delivered until the fourth quarter of 2020.
