Deliveries of the NIO ET5 began Sept. 30 to customers in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, and soon the car will arrive across China.
The NIO ET5 is the first car from the brand that has been manufactured at its new NeoPark factory in Hefei, in Anhui province. This five-seater has a twin-motor powertrain, with a 150 kW induction motor up front and a 210 kW permanent magnet motor in the rear, for a combined output of 360 kW and 700 Nm of torque.
There are three battery options on the ET5: 75 kWh for 550 km (341 miles), 100 kWh for 700 km (434 miles), and 150 kWh for 1,000 km (621 miles). (These ranges are all according to the China Light Duty Vehicle Test Cycle, or CLTC.) For the 150 kWh model, NIO claims 0-100 km/h (0-63 mph) in 4.3 seconds and a 100-meter braking distance of 33.9 meters.
As for the interior, the NIO ET5 keeps things rather minimalistic. The center console has a 12.8-inch touch control screen, a wireless charging pad, twin cup holders, and a drive selector — not too many other bells and whistles there. For driving technology, the ET5 comes equipped with NIO’s NOMI digital assistant and its autonomous driving system.
The ET5 is NIO’s most affordable model, with a starting price of RMB 328,000 ($46,100) before subsidies.
