NIO Launches the All-New EC6, a Smart Electric
Coupe SUV, in China
Shanghai, September 15, 2023 – NIO Inc. (NYSE: NIO;
HKEX: 9866; SGX: NIO) (“NIO” or the “Company”), a pioneer and a leading company in the premium smart
electric vehicle market, today launched its All-New EC6, a smart electric coupe SUV, with pricing starting from RMB358,000 (with a
75 kWh battery pack) or RMB416,000 (with a 100 kWh battery pack). With subscription of Battery as a Service (BaaS), the price starts
at RMB288,000. The All-New EC6 are now available for test drive, with deliveries commencing immediately.
The All-New EC6, born on the NT2.0 platform, comes with all-round upgrades
including innovative family design language, top-tier performance and leading intelligence to deliver beyond-expectation mobility experience
to families and individuals seeking inspirations in their lives.
Measuring 4,849 mm in length, 1,995 mm in width, and 1,697 mm in height
with a wheelbase of 2,915 mm, the All-New EC6 comes with the iconic coupe fastback, expressive silhouette, smooth and stretched curves
on the top generated by polished inclination of a pillar and reduced body height. It brings expressive trend-setters even more joyful
mobility experience on their journey of life explorations.
Based on the family language of "Design for AD", the All-New
EC6 takes a step further to adopt the innovative split-type Double Dash daytime running lights for the first time. The split design adds
to the tension on the front surfaces, generating strong momentum. The innovation in the production process has eradicated the black edges that used to be on top of the lights,
setting a new trend for design. The All-New EC6 has a dual-mode active spoiler that adjusts to improve aerodynamics. This spoiler can
automatically or manually shift to positions for better speed or reduced drag.
With optimized space layout, the All-New EC6 also provides outstanding
interior space. There are 22 storage compartments in addition to 7 hooks that can hold up to 30 kilograms of items. The rear trunk alone
offers 594L of space, complemented by an 89L multi-layer hidden storage compartment. The total volume can be enlarged to 1,402L once the
second-row seats are folded down.
Excellent performance has always been part of NIO's DNA, and the All-New
EC6 is no exception. It comes standard with a dual motor four-wheel drive system, equipped with a front 150 kW induction motor and a rear
210 kW permanent magnet motor totaling the power of 360 kW and torque of 700 N·m. It accelerates from 0 to 100 kph in just 4.4
seconds with half the load. As a standard configuration, NIO's in-house developed high-performance aluminum alloy 4-piston fixed calipers
on the front wheel paired with 355 mm brake discs realize a braking distance of 34.5 meters from 100 to 0 kph (with the 21-inch rim).
The All-New EC6’s aluminum alloy and high-strength steel hybrid
vehicle body balances performance and weight. The integrated die-cast aluminum alloy rear floor assembly and C and D pillars not only
protects the safety for both the battery and occupants, but also significantly reduces part count and weight. The nearly 50:50 front-and-rear
weight distribution and an ultralow center of gravity of 580 mm enhance neutral steering for better handling in sharp turns and a higher
top speed. The handling is elevated comprehensively by the front and rear five-link suspension, the in-house developed Intelligent Chassis
Domain Controller (ICC) and Continuous Damping Control (CDC). Customized adjustments enable different 0 to 100 kph acceleration time and
9 driving modes. In addition, the Intelligent Smooth Stop (ISS) comes standard on the car, automatically adjusting the brake force at
the end to greatly alleviate the nosedive and improve the driving comfort in congested urban areas.
The ever-evolving Banyan Digital System connects NIO products, services,
and communities, bringing a unique experience of intelligent driving. The new "Find My Car" feature captures the surrounding
environment with surround view cameras and the transparent chassis and encrypts the images, helping users locate the vehicle on NIO app.
There are images of the environment around the car on NIO app, with which users can check the car's location. NOMI improves interaction
efficiency with the added features of "Listening" and "center display control via voice commands".
For intelligent driving, the All-New EC6 comes standard with NIO Aquila
Super Sensing equipped with 33 high-performance sensors including LiDAR, and NIO ADAM Super Computing featuring four NVIDIA Drive Orin
X with a total computing power of up to 1,016 TOPS. It is also equipped with 24 active safety and driver-assist features powered by Aquila
Super Sensing and ADAM Super Computing. The standard intelligent Adaptive Driving Beam (ADB) allows matrix high-beam control. With Aquila
Super Sensing, the LiDAR and front cameras automatically detect road conditions, providing input to the lighting system for precise beam
distribution without disrupting other vehicles heading the same or opposite direction, to ensure driving safety at night.
With powerful computing and advanced video encoding and decoding capabilities,
N-Box, the optional enhanced infotainment console, serves as the "entertainment brain" of PanoCinema, the digital cockpit, and
the "second infotainment system." With various ways of inputs and outputs, it can support film watching by multiple passengers
on an AR mega screen. Paired with NIO Air AR glasses, it offers an experience equivalent to a 201-inch screen with a view distance of
six meters. The 7.1.4 Surround Sound System envelops occupants in its rich and pristine sound. Game consoles, laptops, and tablets can
be connected to the system in a plug-and-play manner.
