Chinese electric startup NextEV has introduced the EP9 – a 1,360hp fully electric supercar with a top speed of 312km/h – through its new brand NIO.
The car is equipped with four electric motors which generate a combined 6,332Nm of torque from a 777-volt powertrain which the company claims can reach a range of 426km on a full charge.
According to Jalopnik, the company hasn’t released any zero to hundred figures, but it claims the car can go up to 200km/h in 7.1 seconds.
However, its top speed is still slightly lower compared to the Rimac Concept S, a sportier Concept One, which boasts a top speed of 365km/h backed by 1,365hp and 1,800Nm of torque.
Rimac claims it can hit 200km/h from a standstill in 5.6 seconds, which is 1.5 seconds faster than the EP9’s claimed figure, but with a lower range.
NIO will be building only six EP9s for China next year.
