Nio ET7 drives 1,044 km on single cost with semi stable state battery


Nio, a Chinese language EV automobile maker, has simply accomplished a battery problem with its mass-produced ET7 sedan, driving for 1,044 km on a single cost.

The Nio ET7 arrived at its vacation spot with a 3% state of cost, or 36 km of vary, based on stats shared by the corporate.

This makes the Nio ET7 the longest vary automobile on this planet due to its swappable excessive density 150 kWh semi-solid state battery pack which the corporate has been engaged on.

All of this was achieved in simply over 14 hours of driving with Nio’s founder and chairman, William Li, driving the automobile for almost all of the journey. Nio’s vice chairman Shen Fei was additionally within the automobile and drove a part of the best way.

Nio is greatest recognized for its battery swap expertise and operates over 2,000 battery swap stations throughout China and Europe. In keeping with the timeline shared by Nio, Li left a Nio battery swap station in Shanghai at 6:32 am with the automobile arriving – with the identical battery – at its vacation spot at 8:33 pm. 

Given it’s winter, the temperatures through the testing had been fairly low which isn’t optimum for vary testing. 

Regardless, the automobile drove for prolonged durations with a mean consumption of 132 Wh/km at a mean velocity of 84 km/hr.

On the again of this milestone, Nio’s shared a publish on its weibo web page. The translated model of what the corporate shared mentioned:

“At this time, we’ve witnessed that the vary of sensible pure electrical automobiles has entered the period of 1 thousand kilometers. #Weilai ran 1044 kilometers on one battery. The 150kWh battery life problem was accomplished, with a closing rating of 1044 kilometers!

“There was a nationwide chilly wave in current days. Once we set off from the Shanghai World Expo Middle battery swapping station at 6:32 within the morning, the temperature was minus 2 levels. The group didn’t count on the precise battery life to exceed 1,000 kilometers in the present day. What exceeded everybody’s expectations was that ET7 and 150kWh battery pack.”

One other key innovation being showcased by Li and the group on this journey is Nio’s autonomous driving suite which incorporates Nio pilot plus.

Some 957 km of the 1,044 km journey was accomplished utilizing Nio’s pilot plus characteristic, which is analogous to Tesla’s freeway autopilot suite.

The star right here is the 150 kWh battery pack which has an vitality density of 360 Wh/kg. It’s one of many highest-density mass-produced batteries for EVs and has been provided by Beijing WeLion New Vitality Know-how.

For comparability, a Nickel-Manganese-Cobalt (NMC) battery pack utilized in conventional long-range vehicles have a typical vitality density of round 270 Wh/kg. Lithium-Iron-Phosphate (LFP) batteries that are utilized in many of the well-liked fashions in Australia are round 150 Wh/kg.

This can be a nice achievement for EV growth because it showcases battery expertise in mass-produced EVs and provides a glimpse of what’s to return in additional mass-market electrical vehicles within the coming years.
