The NIO ES6 gets an upgrade and is now a stunning electric SUV

NIO relaunches the ES6, one of its most popular electric cars, with the brand’s latest technology and it looks really good.

NIO is considered to be one of the most promising and promising major Chinese automotive brands. A young company that stands out for its wide portfolio of electric cars and its battery exchange system that allows its vehicles to swap batteries for charged ones in less than 6 minutes.

Now NIO wanted to update the NIO ES6, and has applied all the innovations that the brand has developed in recent years, thus offering a better and more interesting 100% electric SUV.

It was in 2018 when NIO presented the ES6 and at the end of 2019 when they started the first deliveries in China, and now after about 4 years it’s time for a renewal.

The first thing to note is that the NIO ES6 is based on NIO’s new platform, the NT 2.0, which means that it has NIO’s most advanced supercomputer, known as NIO Adam, which is made up of four Nvidia DRIVE Orin chip systems. In other words, it offers a breakthrough in autonomous driving systems.

Currently all NIO electric cars (ES7, ES8, ET5, EC7) have this technology, and it was only the NIO ES6 that was pending, so it is consistent that the brand has decided to make this renewal.

What’s new in the new NIO ES6

The first thing you notice about the new NIO ES6 is its refreshed design and aesthetics, NIO’s midsize SUV resembles the design language of the brand’s latest vehicles. As you can see from the images, the vehicle itself is visually graceful.

The dimensions of the new NIO ES6 are 4,854 mm long, 1,995 mm wide and 1,703 mm high. These dimensions are very similar to those of its predecessor, although slightly larger.

In terms of performance, the new NIO ES6 is equipped with two electric motors, a 150 kW (204 hp) front motor and a 210 kW (285 hp) rear axle motor for a total of 482 hp (360 kW) of power. Acceleration from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) is achieved in just 4.5 seconds.

The NIO ES6 will be offered with two battery sizes, a 75 kWh capacity battery that offers a range of 490 km under the CLTC cycle, or opt for a 100 kWh battery, whose range soars to 625 km.

The interior of the NIO ES6 has also been redesigned from the ground up, adopting a simpler yet more comfortable interior.

Finally, the NIO ES6 in Europe is likely to be renamed NIO EL6, thus avoiding the naming conflict with Audi.
