The NIO EP9 is an electric-powered, two-seat hypercar manufactured by NIO, assisted by their Formula E racing division. The name EP9 stands for Electric Performance 9.


Overview

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

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.

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 NextEV.

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).

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 350 km/h (217 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.

Performance

The NIO EP9 is like a Class A version of the Ford GT MK II. It has a very low top speed (the lowest in Class A) that is compensated for with excellent acceleration, handling and nitro efficiency. At 4A9 icon star yellow.png, it has rapid acceleration. However, its top speed is too low for it to compete with other low Class A cars such Aston Martin Vulcan and Nissan GT-R NISMO.

Availability

Blueprints for the EP9 are obtainable from the Legend Pass of the Fire and Lightning Season.

Usage

The EP9 was required to begin the Aspark Owl's Special Event.

Apart from the Special Event, the EP9 sees little use in either events or multiplayer.
