Chinese electric vehicle maker NIO officially launched its second electric SUV, the NIO ES6. The ES6 officially rolled off the production line on Tuesday at the JAC NIO Advanced Manufacturing Center. The new model is slated to begin delivery to users in the second half of June.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to cooperate with a company as innovative as NIO. The ES6 jointly created by NIO and JAC boasts leading-class research and development and high manufacturing quality, as well as an impressive driving and riding experience. We are proud to support the continued development of NIO and wish them even more success in the future,” said Steve Meszaros, CEO of Yanfeng Automotive Interiors.
Founder, Chairman and CEO of NIO, William Li, expressed his gratitude to the company’s partners, saying, “Thank you for the great support you’ve all shown. NIO’s supply chain network continues to mature each day, and the ES6 is the fruit of the joint efforts by NIO and all of our wonderful partners.”
The NIO ES6, which joins the bigger 7-seat ES8 electric SUV, features 4.7 second 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration, a NEDC range of over 510 km (317 miles), and 33.9-meter braking distance from 100-0 km/h. The ES6 expands the design language of the NIO product line with a stylish and sporty exterior plus a refined, high-tech interior.
