Default NextEV launches NIO EP9 limited-run electric supercar

NextEV has introduced a new road car division named NIO, and has launched a limited-run electric supercar - the NIO EP9. The car has lapped the Nürburgring in a record time of 7 minutes and 05.12 seconds to become the fastest electric car in the world to lap around the 20.8 km circuit.

The NIO EP9 is powered by four high-performance inboard motors that are linked with four individual gearboxes. The system is capable of generating 1 MegaWatt of power, which translates to 1,341 BHP. The EP9 boasts of a 0-200 km/h acceleration time of 7.1 seconds, while the top speed is 313 km/h. It can be charged in 45 minutes and has a total range of 427 kilometres.

The NIO EP9 weighs 1,735 kg. It has a carbon chassis and body, and has been designed to handle the physical demands of a car with 3G cornering capabilities. The company claims of achieving 24,000 Newtons of downforce at 240 km/h.

NextEV is planning to produce just six units of the NIO EP9.

Earlier this week late at night privately spent some time with the EP9 at their Flagship showroom in Shanghai, China;

Some points which were discussed & cleared while at the showroom;

- Power = 1 MegaWatt = 1341 HP
- Nurburgring Lap Time = 6 min 45 seconds (Supposedly Fastest for an EV)
- Only 6 cars made so far (all owned by the founders/investors) & 10 more will be produced.
- Though NIO is Chinese backed but its UK wing is responsible for the EP9.
- AWD & 0-100km/h in 2.9 sec.
- Interiors did not look special, but bare basic with a couple of screens.
- Exteriors were truly special though & the car is truly massive in size & surely has the presence of a MegaCar.
- The car doesnt have any exterior side view mirrors.
