NextEV has unveiled its NIO EP9 electric car, which it claims is the fastest EV in the world.
The EP9 set a new record for the fastest electric vehicle at the Nürburgring – 7 minutes and 5 seconds – during its tests pre-launch.
The two-seater is powered by four electric motors which deliver 1,000kW combined.
This propels the car from:
- 0-100km/h in 2.7 seconds
- 0-200km/h in 7.1 seconds
- 0-300km/h in 15.9 seconds
The car weighs 1,735kg, with 635kg of that weight its battery packs. A fully-charged set will take the EP9 427km, said the company.
NextEV will make six units of the EP9, all of which have already been purchased by the company’s founders.
