Chinese electric car company Nio has released a new variant of a new sedan and Augmented Reality (AR) glasses that reduce the need for in-car screens.
Nio said it partnered with Chinese augmented reality startup Nreal for AR glasses connected to its new sedan ET5.
Later this electric car will begin to be delivered in September 2022, with prices starting at US $ 51,250, for capital that uses batteries.
While AR glasses are not included and must be purchased separately, according to the company.
The ET5 is Nio’s second sedan to hit the market. The first sedan that the company introduced was the ET7 in January.
Nio claims the base 75kWh battery offers over 341 miles of range using China’s test cycle, while the highest-end 150kWh “Ultralong Range” pack is supposedly good for more than 620 miles.
William Li, CEO of Nio said delivery of the ET7 will begin on March 28, 2022, at the company’s annual ‘Nio Day’ event.
Nio himself plans to enter the market in Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and Denmark. By 2025 the company targets users of this car to be in 25 countries.
Currently Nio has also opened a flagship store in Oslo, Norway and this year has started delivery vehicles to the country, where rivals Xpeng and BYD have also delivered electric cars.
