The Chinese Built the Most Powerful and Fastest Electric Vehicle - NIO EP9!
|   Sunday, January 01, 2017
Electric propulsion is the future of the automotive world. Very few doubt this now. This idea was demonstrated time and time again by those from Tesla, but also the specialists from Rimac, who designed the future super-car Concept-One, which until recently was the peak of electric vehicles as far as performance goes. But now, the Chinese from NextEV reveal the new electrical hyper-car called NIO EP9 which wants to be the fastest street electric vehicle in the world!

Folks from NextEV are not amateurs in terms of electric vehicles.
They participated in the Formula E Championship, being the winners of the first 2014-2015 season due to the French pilot Nelson Piquet Jr. and NextEV Team China Racing.

With a spectacular design, worthy of a true concept, the NIO EP9 take some items from its direct competitor Rimac Concept One, such as the horizontal bodywork splitting, with a strip of carbon fiber exposed to view, and no rear window, while the front lights hint at the Toyota FT1 concept and the rear ones at the Renault Sport RS 01race car.

The spectacular hyper-car has a panoramic windscreen, which continues into the side windows like Koenigsegg models. The proportions of the electrical hyper-car are bewildering, measuring4,888 mm in length, 2,230 mm in width and 1,150 mm in height - it is extremely long, wide and very short.

It is made from carbon fiber, which makes up 364 kg from the total weight of 1,735 kg, the electrical hyper-car has two packs of lithium-ion batteries with a combined mass of 635 kg and can be charged in just 45 minutes while offering a range of 427 km. The batteries can be exchanged with others already charged to cut that down even further. The NIO EP9 has 4 electric motors with a total output of 1 megawatt or 1,360 hp, while the cumulated maximum torque reaches 6,634 Nm!

Each electric motor has an individual gearbox. So, we have four gearboxes, through which each wheel is guided! With a torque virtually unlimited available from zero up to 7,500 rpm, the NIO EP9 accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h into 2.7 seconds, from 0 to 200 km / h in 7.1 seconds, and from 0 to 300 km / h in just 15.9 seconds!

The maximum speed is 313 km / h, while on the distance of a quarter mile (402 meters), it achieved a time of 10.1 seconds with a speed finish of 249 km / h!
The new electrical hyper-car is fast not only in a straight line, but also on racing circuits. It has a chassis inspired by racing cars and designed using the criteria of racing prototypes from the top category, LMP1, with 19-inch wheels, shod with tires designed exclusively for this model with huge sizes 320 / 705 R19, braking system with disc carbon-ceramic 408 mm in diameter, which provides a deceleration of 3.30 G and active aerodynamic elements, which provide a pressure of up to two times higher than that of racing cars for Formula 1 - 24,000 Nm at a speed of 240 km / h!

According to NextEV representatives, the new EP9 NIO can provide a lateral acceleration in curves of 2.35 G at a speed of 230 km / h!
Its incredible capabilities have already brought down the Nurburgring Nordschleife record for electric vehicles, which is 7 minutes and 05.120 seconds, by 1 minute and 52.780 seconds! It pretty much did the same to the record on the Paul Ricard circuit.
