The first image of the pre-production NIO ET7 has surfaced online: an electric sedan that is bigger and cheaper than the Tesla Model S. The image was posted on the CarNewsChina website.
There are not so many differences from the show car in the “live” copy of NIO ET7. These are details of lighting equipment, rims, as well as minor design details. The NIO ET7 has a length of 5098 mm with a wheelbase of 3060 mm. According to both indicators, this is at least 100 mm more than that of the Tesla Model S electric car.
By default, the Chinese electric car is equipped with two electric motors with a total capacity of 658 forces (850 Nm), and the battery capacity, depending on the version, is 70, 100 or 150 kWh. The NEDC cruising range reaches 500, 700 and 1000 km, respectively. The sedan’s equipment includes heated, ventilated and massage seats in both rows, an audio unit with 23 speakers, electric doors, a panoramic roof, air suspension, and an advanced autopilot system.

Prices for the NIO ET7 electric sedan were announced in the spring of this year. The initial cost is 448 thousand yuan or 69,300 dollars. A model in a richer configuration will cost 506-526 thousand yuan (78,300-81,400 dollars), prices for the top version have not yet been announced.
In addition, in China, it is possible to purchase NIO ET7 for a lower amount, but with a monthly payment for using the battery. However, the serial production of the model, presented at the beginning of 2021, has not yet begun: the company is only accepting pre-orders for now, deliveries of cars will not happen earlier than the first quarter of next year.
