Chinese auto manufacturer NIO motors have finally launched the NIO EC6 Electric Coupe at the Chengdu Motor Show in China. NIO EC6 is the coupe or “Sportback” version of the ES6, NIO’s popular mid-sized SUV, and features similarities with the design of the new vehicle.
NIO EC6 is available in three variants starting from RMB 368,000 ($52,441 US) to RMB 526,000 ($74,957 US) before government subsidies.
NIO EC6 comes in 70 kWh and 100 kWh battery options with NEDC range estimates of 440 km (273 miles) and 615 km (381), respectively. Since the NEDC range rating is not as realistic either as the WLTP or EPA range rating systems, so the actual driving range will be about 25% to 33% less.
On the inside, the EC6 has a full-digital cabin with a 9.8-inch instrument cluster, an 11.3-inch high-definition multi-touch center display, and NOMI Mate 2.0, NIO’s unique digital assistant, fitted with an AMOLED full-circular display.
NOMI is an interactive personal assistant in the form of a voice-activated circular display on top of the dashboard that is designed to imitate a human face. The company calls NOMI the world’s first in-vehicle artificial intelligence.
The EC6 also features the NIO Pilot hardware, including a Mobileye EyeQ4 chip with 23 sensors that supports over 20 functions covering typical traffic scenarios of what vehicles frequently encounter in China.
Note: NIO Pilot can be upgraded over time via firmware-over-the-air.
It comes in three variants: EC6 Sport Edition, EC6 Performance Edition and the EC6 Signature Edition.
