The ES6 displays a high resemblance of the NIO ES8, while the more compact size and many nuances make it look more aggressive. There are 7 colors of car body offered to consumers, namely, sky blue, cloud white, stratosphere blue, mars red, misty green, star gray and deep black.
The vehicle measures 4,850mm long and 1,965mm wide with a wheelbase length of 2,900mm, which offers a dynamic and comfortable mobile living space. It uses microfiber suede car roof for the first time. Featuring the three-spoke sports steering wheel and one-piece sports seat, it creates a driving space with enduring stamina, said the startup.
According to NIO, the ES6 is the world's first SUV that uses an electric all-wheel driving system consisting of a PM motor and an IM Motor. The 160kW PM motor is responsible for medium and low speed daily driving while 240kW induction motor offers great acceleration performance and high speed, producing up to 15,000 rpm per minute. With an optional new 84kWh LC battery pack, the new SUV can show a NEDC-rated range up to 510km. It only takes 4.7 seconds for it to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h.
For the month of June, consumers purchased the mandatory liability insurance for traffic accidents of motor vehicles (MLI) for a total of 9,162 vehicles made by Chinese startups, according to data released by the China Insurance Regulatory Commission (CIRC). Of that, the number of insured ES6 reached 362 units, ranking 5th among all startup's models delivered on the market.
