At the 2021 Shanghai International Auto Show, the first smart electric flagship sedan from NIO has ushered in the first show. The new car will provide a battery pack with a battery capacity of 150kWh, and its NEDC range will exceed 1000km. Previously, it was priced for ET7 subsidies before the sale price of 448,000-526,000 yuan. Let’s take a look at the highlights of this EV.
In terms of appearance, NIO ET7 is featured with a new face design of “X-Bar” modeling, closed front face creates a more scientific visual effect. The bumper has a horizontal strip decoration inside the air opening, and the head is further widely widen.
The design of the awareness of the sizes of a large lamp is reserved on a new car, of which the upper layer is the daytime driving light and the steering lamp, and the lower is a far-collected light, with extremely high identification.
The side of the body is still using the skyline, the waistline of the double waves, slipped back design, intelligent frame-free, and hidden sense door handle, etc. Moreover, it also creates a simple and dynamic body shape. In addition, it will also provide users with a UWB technology-based digital key.
In terms of the body size, it is 5098/1987/1505mm, and the wheelbase reaches 3060mm, which is positioned as a medium-sized car. At the same time, the vehicle offers a 19/20-inch of four rings for consumers.
The tail looks full and concise, and the bar-type taillights are also a popular design technique at the moment, and form a front and back echoing effect with the daytime running lights on the front of the car.
In order to improve the performance of autonomous driving, NIO ET7 is equipped with Lidar, which uses a watchtower sensor layout. NIO’s super-sensing system Aquila is equipped with 33 high-performance sensing hardware, including 1 ultra-long-distance high-precision lidar, 11 8-megapixel high-definition cameras, 5 millimeter wave radars, 12 ultrasonic radars, 2 high-precision positioning units, 1 vehicle-road cooperative perception and 1 enhanced main driver perception hardware.
At the same time, the latest automatic driving technology NAD (NIO Autonomous Driving) carried by the NIO eT7 is based on the NIO Aquila NIO Super Sensing System and the NIO Adam Future Supercomputing Platform. Gradually realize automatic driving functions in high-speed, urban, parking, and power-on scenarios. And the complete function of this set of NAD will use a monthly subscription model to provide services, namely ADaaS (AD as a Service), the service fee is 680 yuan per month.
In the interior, NIO eT7 uses Qualcomm’s third-generation digital cockpit computing platform and a new generation of mobile Internet controllers. The new car adopts a brand-new interior design, with a surround waterfall 64-color interior ambient light, creating a more refined and intelligent cockpit. The interior design pays great attention to texture in terms of material selection and craftsmanship. The use of renewable rattan wood Karunn, combined with microfiber velvet ceiling, Nappa leather and meteorite chrome plating process, further enhances the sense of luxury in the car, and it is also in line with the consumption concept of the Chinese people.
The new car has a newly upgraded 12.8-inch AMOLED central control screen and a 10.2-inch HDR digital instrument screen. The size is very large, and the UI design, resolution and color matching are very characteristic of NIO.
The 12.8-inch AMOLED central control screen is equipped with NOMI Mate 2.0 smart car system. The central control area has almost eliminated the physical buttons, and other functions are all integrated in the floating large-size central control screen.
In terms of configuration, the new car is equipped with hidden air-conditioning vents, privacy/silent glass, smart fragrance system (you can open the fragrance through Nomi voice control, switch the fragrance and adjust the concentration), 23 top speakers, and electric adjustment of the front and rear seats , Heating, ventilation, massage, etc.
In terms of power, NIO eT7 uses a second-generation high-efficiency electric drive platform built with new materials, equipped with a front and rear dual-motor four-wheel drive combination. Among them, the maximum power of the front permanent magnet synchronous single machine is 180 kilowatts, the maximum power of the rear induction asynchronous motor is 300 kilowatts, the maximum total output power of the vehicle is 480 kilowatts, and the peak torque is 850 N·m, which can achieve 0-100km/h acceleration for 3.9s.
As for the range, the new car will carry 70 kWh and 100 kWh of the battery pack in the early days, including the model of the 70 kWh of the battery pack, NEDC battery range can reach more than 500 kilometers; 100 kilowatt battery group model, battery range can exceed 700 Km; and it is a model of the first 150kWh battery group, and the NEDC battery life can exceed 1000km.
