The company NIO has introduced the ET5 sedan, which will receive an advanced autopilot system and batteries that will last for 1000 km of mileage.

NIO will offer three battery options for the new ET5:

  • Standard: 75 kWh, it will be enough for 550 km of travel.
  • Long-range: 100 kWh per 700 km.
  • Ultra-long range: 150 kWh and as much as 1000 km of the way in autonomous mode.

Of course, the latter option seems to be the most interesting: many experts have previously said that as soon as electric cars overcome the bar of 1000 km on a single charge, buyers will have no last concerns about such models. After all, having 1000 km in reserve, you can safely go even on long trips.

Price

It is stated that the NIO ET5 will cost in China from 328,000 yuan for a model with a 75 kWh battery to 386,000 yuan for a version with 100 kWh. Prices for the 150-kilowatt version have not yet been announced.

At the same time, the company offers to buy ET5 for only 258,000 yuan, and the price will be the same regardless of the battery. But in this case, the battery will be rented: 980 yuan per month for 75 kWh and 1480 yuan for 100 kWh.

Engine





Regardless of the battery capacity, two engines with a total power of 360 kW (489 hp) and a torque of 700 Nm will drive the NIO ET5. It is stated that the acceleration time of 0-100 km/h will take 4.3 seconds for NIO ET5.

Colors

Another interesting feature of the model: is the names of colors. For several years now, a strange competition has been going on in China among automakers on the topic of who will come up with the most unusual names for the color scheme.

For example, one of the colors of NIO ET5 is called “The first light kiss” and it is explained as follows: “Romantic, like a pink shine that occurs when the first rays of the sun kiss the clear sky on the salt marsh of Uyuni in Bolivia” (Uyuni is a dried-up salt lake in the south of the Altiplano plain in Bolivia, which is located at an altitude of about 3650 m above sea level).

Autopilot

And ET5 will receive the latest version of the autonomous driving system, which is called NIO Aquila Super Sensing. The system includes lidar, seven 8-megapixel high-resolution cameras, four 3-megapixel photosensitive surround cameras, one driver monitoring system, five range radars, and 12 ultrasonic sensors. All this will be controlled by the “supercomputer” NIO Adam, which can process 8 GB of images per second.
