ET9 is the largest, most advanced and most expensive electric model of the Chinese Nio.
The Nine ET9 is one of the most advanced EVs on the market and at the same time the technological showcase of the Chinese company that targets prestigious models such as those of Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, the Audi A8, the BMW 7 Series and the Porsche Panamera.
Having two electric motors and four-wheel drive, the ET9 starts its career initially in the Chinese market in early 2025, with a price of more than 100,000 euros – and is therefore Nio’s most expensive model to date.
It is also the largest, with a length of over 5,3 m.width 2.016 mm and height 1,620 mm, making it over 200mm. longer, 29 mm. wider and 115 mm. higher than the 4-door ET7 launched in 2022. Its wheelbase is also impressive, reaching 3,25 m.
The makers of Nio describe the design of the ET9 with the term land jet which was adopted for the first time in 2020 by Audi combining the lines of a traditional 4-door model with those of a modern SUV – hence the wheels of 23 inches and the distance of 200 mm of the body from the ground.
Inside Nio adopted a layout 2+2 seats. The rear seats have been developed specifically for the ET9 and offer 18-way power adjustment along with a recline function and the ability to recline the backrest up to 45 degrees. The two passengers also enjoy the services two OLED screens with a diagonal of 14.5 inches which are attached to the back of the front seats. There are also folding tables and a mini fridge with a capacity of 10 liters.
From there, the Nio ET9 adopts a electric platform 900V combined with one power module silicon carbide (SIC) 1.200V which allows charging the battery of 120 kWh until 600 kW – price that ensures its replenishment with energy capable of covering 255 km in just 5 minutes.
The reference point of the ET9 is the new Nio chip that bears the name NX9031 AD. The processor of 5 nm with 32 cores has over 50 billion transistors and is capable of performing over 6 trillion commands per second at speeds 75% higher than the rest.
At the rear of the drive units, we find an electric motor that can rotate up to 20.000 s.a.l. delivering maximum power 340 kW. Up front is a power-dense induction motor 2.6 kW/kg and maximum power 180 kW.
