SUV with an aerodynamic coefficient of Cd 0.23 and a range of up to 940 km
NIO it is one of the many Chinese electric cars that compete not only on the Chinese but also on the European market. Its novelty is a luxury electric SUV EC7, which boasts many interesting features. It belongs to the EC series, ie a kind of hybrid between an SUV and a coupe. This also results in an extremely aerodynamic shape, which can boast a barely credible value of the Cd coefficient of 0.23 (remember, however, that, for example, the new Audi Q8 Sportback e-tron has 0.24). The active aerodynamics is also interesting, the car has, for example, an adjustable rear spoiler that can increase downforce in sports mode, or, on the contrary, improve the air flow to achieve lower consumption.
The NIO EC7 is equipped with a pair of electric motors (180kW permanent magnet motor at the front, 300kW induction motor at the rear), which adds up to 480kW of power and 850Nm of torque. In Sport mode, this is enough to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds, and Sport+ mode pushes the acceleration up to 3.8 seconds. We also have special ways for towing trailers, driving in snow, sand, wet, with a higher ground clearance and more. It brakes from 100 km/h to zero in just 33.9 meters.
There is also a partially autonomous NAD control, which uses the Aquila sensor system. It contains a total of 33 sensors, among which we find HR lidar, seven 8MPx cameras, four 3MPx cameras, ADMS (Advanced Driver Monitoring System), five mmWave radars, 12 ultrasonic sensors, backup position sensor ( another “GPS” module ) and support for V2X. Interesting features are the Smart Matrix LED lights or the panoramic roof. Inside there is a 16″ digital instrument panel and a 12.8″ AMOLED display for infotainment. The sound system is responsible for the 7.1.4 system.
The car is 4968 mm long, 1974 mm wide and 1714 mm high, and its wheelbase is 2960 mm. As for the range, it depends on the size of the battery. The basic 75kWh variant is supposed to have a range of 489 km according to the Chinese CTLC standard, but it is known for its excessive optimism and in reality we can expect 350-400 km under normal conditions (under worse conditions, of course less) . According to the same standard, the 100kWh version has a range of up to 635 km, and a 150kWh version with a solid state battery from WeLion is also expected in the future. In this case, we can even expect a range of 940 km, but personally I count on 700-800 km in normal situations. It can be expected that the WLTP values will be slightly lower.
The base price of the EC7 with a 75kWh battery is 488,000 yuan (1.6 million CZK in direct conversion, the final European price will probably be much higher), the version with a 100kWh battery will cost 546,000 (1.79 million CZK). A battery-less variant will also be available for 418,000 (CZK 1.37 million), in which case the battery will be leased as needed. The 75kWh battery costs 980 yuan per month (CZK 3,200), the 100kWh version costs 1,680 yuan (CZK 5,500). We do not yet know the prices of the 150kWh version.
