The Nio EP9 is a Chinese electric-powered, two-seat sports car manufactured by Nio, assisted by their Formula E racing division. The name EP9 stands for Electric Performance 9.

Developed and built in 18 months, the EP9 debuted at the Saatchi Gallery in London, England.[1]

Six EP9s have been sold to Nio investors for £2,500,000 each. Nio has announced that ten additional EP9s will be sold to the general public.

However, it is not a road-legal vehicle and none of the 16 production model EP9s were ever registered for road use. The EP9 is purely designed for track use and does not comply with the laws and regulations to be registered in China. None of the 16 production model EP9s was ever exported and registered for road use outside China so far.

Each of the EP9’s wheels has its own motor and transmission. Each motor has 250 kW 335.25 hp, giving the car a total power output of 1 MW 1,341 hp; 1,360 PS. The EP9 is both all-wheel drive, and individual-wheel drive. The car has an advanced torque vectoring system that can adjust the power output to each wheel.

The EP9’s battery can last up to 427 km , 265 miles before it needs to be charged. Recharging takes 45 minutes, and battery replacement takes 8 minutes as the batteries need to be removed when recharged.

The car is equipped with an active suspension, including a ride height controller that makes 200 calculations per second.

The car’s brakes are developed and constructed in house by Next E V.

The car’s chassis construction is all carbon fibre, and is based on the FIA Le Mans Prototype regulations. The exterior is also made of the same material.

The vehicle’s batteries weigh 635 kg (1,400 lb). All of the carbon fibre in the car, in total, weighs 364 kg 802 lb. The total weight of the car is 1,735 kg 3,825 lb.

12 volts for road use

750 volts for track use

The car comes with three power modes, each of which supply power to the batteries either for road or track use.

This is the new NIO EP9, both the launch of the NIO brand and the electric supercar itself from NextEV, the brainchild of Chinese businessman, William Lee. Marking a significant step into the future, I join the team during testing at Circuit Paul Ricard in France for an exclusive look behind the scenes during testing.

The EP9 can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.7 seconds, 200 km/h (124 mph) in 7.1 seconds, and 300 km/h (186 mph) in 15.9 seconds, as demonstrated by Richard Hammond in The Grand Tour. The car can achieve a top speed of 313 km/h (194 mph).

The EP9 can also brake at a very short distance, as Richard Hammond demonstrated at the Eboladrome.

The car is somewhat capable of autonomous driving, which it did when the car set a record for fastest autonomous driving at the Circuit of the Americas. However, this was only possible because it was configured to drive autonomously.

This video from Next E V, the Chinese company behind the 1,341bhp Nio EP9 electric supercar, shows it taking on the Nürburgring Nordschleife. The company claims a new electric car lap record of 7:05:120, blitzing the previous record of 7:22.329.

Boasting 1,360hp it reaches the magical 1 Megawatt of power, capable of over 300km/h and now holding the lap record for an electric vehicle at the Nurburgring Nordschleife with a time of just 7:05.

0 – 60mph in under 2.4 seconds!!…. I was lucky enough to be one of the first ever passengers in the worlds FASTEST electric car….. LOOK AT MY HEART RATE MONITOR!!! 129 BMP?!!

The NIO EP9 put up an incredible 44.61 seconds on the hill during the Supercar shootout at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed! The NextEV EP9 delivers 1-MegaWatt of power, equivalent to 1360 horsepower! Video shows the car being driven FLAT OUT up the hill at Goodwood, and it sounds and goes like a jet plane! Enjoy!

The record breaking NIO EP9 is now officially is the fastest car at the Nürburgring. It set a new lap record with a lap time of 6m 45.900s on Friday 12 May 2017!

It beat the Lamborghini Huracan Performante by 6 seconds and the Porsche 918 Spyder by 11 seconds. What do you think of that?!

It was lots of fun to experience – the acceleration of 0-60mph in 2.4 seconds felt insane and the handling into the corners was impressive.
