NIO unveils flagship ET9 at brand’s ‘NIO Day’

Chinese electric vehicle brand NIO unveiled a new, flagship ET9 model at the brand’s NIO Day event in December.

The NIO ET9 will be equipped with China’s first Full-Domain 900V Architecture, boasting the highest voltage of 925V, a charging peak power of 600kW, and a charging peak current of 765A. The 900V ultra-fast charging and swapping platform allows fast recharging after a 3-minute battery swap or extending the range by 255km (158 miles) with a 5-minute charge.

With a length of 5,325mm, a width of 2,016mm, a height of 1,620mm, and a wheelbase of 3,250mm, the ET9 will adopt a ‘landjet’ design to maximise cabin space, comfort, safety, and steering. The innovative “Sky Island” and “Executive Bridge” create exclusive first-class comfort. Inside the “Executive Bridge”, NIO ET9 offers a 360-degree versatile tray table for the passengers in the rear seats, which can be adjusted at any angle. The first-class rear seats of NIO ET9 file 24 self-developed patented technologies, with a maximum backrest adjustment angle of 45 degrees, a seat cushion width of 582mm, and 11 adjustments with one click.

At NIO Day 2023, NIO also launched the fourth-generation NIO Power Swap Stations (PSS 4.0) and the 640kW Liquid Cooled Power Charger. PSS 4.0 is compatible with multiple brands and reduces the overall swapping time by 22%. Equipped with rooftop photovoltaic systems, PSS 4.0 saves nearly 18,000kWh of electricity annually. NIO 640kW Power Charger has a maximum current of 765A, maximum voltage of 1000V, and a peak charging power of 640kW. The charging power can be automatically allocated within the station.
