- Nio is a Chinese luxury EV maker that aims to disrupt the established legacy luxury car marques.
- EC7 has been revealed with a coupe SUV body type and a futuristic interior and cabin layout.
- The driving range on the CLTC (Chinese Light-Duty Vehicle Test Cycle) is an impressive 920 km with a 150 kWh battery pack.
Nio has unveiled the EC7 coupe SUV with an astounding 920 km range on the CLTC. Granted, the Chinese test cycle is a bit liberal when it comes to analysing the driving range on a single charge, but it would still be quite high on the more standardised WLTP cycle.
Nio is a Chinese luxury EV maker that aims to challenge the legacy luxury carmakers across international markets, having already been successful in the Chinese market. The EC7 is yet another positive step in that direction. Nio has already commenced selling cars in Europe and this EV could make it there by the end of this year (2023) as well.
