The NIO ET5 comes as an electric sedan, the younger brother of the ET7, which is ready to go head to head with the Tesla Model 3.
In order to fight his rival in power first, NIO did not forget to give ET5 a number of advantages.
First of all, the NIO ET5 has two electric motors that drive All-Wheel Drive (AWD) with a combined power of 489 hp and 700 Nm of torque.
Regarding the battery, NIO offers three battery capacity options for the ET5, namely 75 kWh, 100 kWh, and 150 kWh.
The largest battery is claimed to have a range of more than 1,000 kilometers according to China Light-Duty Vehicle Test Cycle (CLTC) standards.
In addition to a capable drive and battery, the NIO ET5 is also equipped with three features that can actually make the Tesla Model 3 feel inferior, you know.
The first feature is the NIO Autonomous Driving (NAD) integrative feature which works by relying on the NIO Aquila Super Sensing and NIO Adam Super Computing sensors.
The Aquila NIO sensor on the ET5 consists of 33 high-performance sensors including ultra-long range LIDAR, 7 8 megapixel cameras, 4 3 megapixel surround view cameras, Vehicle-to-X (V2X), and an Advanced Driver Monitoring System.
These Aquila sensors feed data to the NIO Adam supercomputer which gives the NIO ET5 the ability to drive autonomously.
In addition to the NAD, the interior of the NIO ET5 also features a PanoCinema digital cockpit that has Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) technology.
To make PanoCinema a reality, NIO partnered with NREAL to develop custom AR glasses and Nolo for custom VR glasses.
This feature is also combined with 256-color ambient lighting and a Dolby Atmos 7.1.4 surround audio system.
The third is NOMI which is an artificial intelligence (AI) in every NIO car. NOMI is not just a voice assistant, but a “travel partner” with which the driver or passenger can interact.
