The automobile industry as of late has been experiencing a massive boom due to the emergence of electric-powered vehicles which continue to dominate the global markets due to the several advantages it has over your traditional gas-powered car. Some of these advantages include cheaper maintenance costs, lesser carbon emissions which will benefit both car owners and the environment, and more overall convenience due to electricity power generation being more flexible compared to gasoline power which takes a huge chunk of your budget almost every week.
With that being said, more automobile companies worldwide have been opening up their doors to the vast opportunities made available by the popularity of electric vehicles. One of the leading companies in this venture is the Shanghai-based automobile manufacturer NIO, which is famously called the “Tesla of China” by many due to its impressive strides in electric automobile technology.
Just recently, in an annual event dubbed “NIO Day”, the Chinese company introduced to the world the latest addition to its growing line of electric vehicles – the NIO ET7, an electric sedan with impressive groundbreaking features and state of the art technology which has successfully caught the attention of both its supporters and competitive rivals alike.
The NIO ET7’s battery will come in three variations – a 70 kWh, 100 kWh, and a 150-kWh model, with the largest battery capacity being able to reach up to 621 miles worth of range. The electric vehicle is powered by a dual motor powertrain which allows the sedan to yield a maximum output of 480 kW, 644 horsepower, and 850 Nm of torque. With the heavy-duty components built onto the NIO ET7, the company claims that the vehicle can reach speeds of up to 62 mph in just 3.9 seconds and a braking distance of 33.5 m from 100 km/h.
The aerodynamic exterior of the NIO ET7 is masterfully paired with a luxurious interior which gives off a premium aesthetic to die for. Some highlights of the ET7’s interior design include invisible smart air vents for maximum comfort supported by an intelligent air quality and fragrance system, seats and other pieces decorated with Karuun renewable rattan sourced from natural rainforest material, customizable waterfall ambient lighting which comes in 64 available colors to set the relaxing mood in, and a sleek meteorite chrome finish accent which tastefully blends with the Nappa leather and Microfiber headliner which screams luxury at its finest.
Staying true to its image as a technologically competitive electric vehicle, the NIO ET7 also offers a variety of features which will surely delight even the most tech savvy of consumers. A number of these exciting features include a 12.8-inch AMOLED Center Display with several available options such as GPS navigation, a 10.2-inch HDR digital instrument cluster with a multi-function control screen, and an upgraded and smarter version of NIO’s signature artificial intelligence driving assistant NOMI. Additionally, the NIO ET7 is also capable of supporting the most updated versions of Bluetooth and WiFi systems thanks to a powerful 3rd generation Qualcomm automotive platform.
