Nurburgring also assaulted by an electric

The prestigious record Nurburgring is still important for manufacturers and vehicle preparers because it's a great way to show potential customers and competition how well they are doing things.

NIO EP9 lateralAnd as hybrid and electric vehicles are now a reality, also they dare to show off in the Green Hell trying to get the highest score in each category.

Today we are going to show another record, in this case the NIO DS9, an electric supercar with Chinese stamp was presented in London at the end of 2016 by the Chinese company NextEV. A highly stylized line with interesting features.

Manufactured carbon fiber and powered by 4 producing engines 1.000 KW (equivalent to 1.360 CV’s). The torque is 1.480 N·m and each motor is connected to the 4 wheels by reducing.

NIO EP9 frontalObviously, much of the weight is the battery (liquid cooled) with almost 40 % the total vehicle weight, They are located on both sides and have a load time 45 minutes, although interesting point, also they could be changed by others already charged in just 8 minutes. Not bad huh?.

Like any other supercar, the technology and equipment levels are high, carbon-ceramic brakes, stylized and semi-competition and aerodynamic elements pressing the vehicle against the ground to ensure speed tires, safety and occupant comfort.

NIO EP9 traseraIts acceleration 0 a 100 km / h is 2,7 seconds, of 0 a 200 km/h en 7,1 seconds and 0 a 300 km/h en 15,9 seconds reaching the 313 km / h punta. The Chinese company guarantees autonomy 427 kilometers, but we already know who depend quite get behind the wheel. circulating 300 km / h maybe in half an hour you stay in the gutter…

NextEV decided to take his NIO DS9 the legendary Nurburgring in October 2016 and the result was excellent becoming the fastest electric vehicle in history “Cathedral engine”, and nothing more and nothing less than the sixth fastest time category 7:05.12. Very few vehicles can say they are at the level of the largest and least without being over-powered internal combustion engines.
