This morning, NIO (on Weibo) officially announced that the all-new NIO EC6 will be launched on September 15 at 8 PM (as per Chinese timing). This EV would be a smart electric coupe SUV.
The all-new NIO EC6 was also listed on the MIIT (Ministry of Industry and Information Technology) Certification site, revealing the car’s dimensions and tire sizes. The EC6 has the following dimensions: 4849*1995*1697mm (LxWxH), the wheelbase size is 2915mm, and is available in two tire size options: 265/45R21 and 255/50R20. The top speed of this EV is 200km/h, as per officials.
Regarding the engine, the NIO EC6 has the following motor models: YS150S001/TZ210S001, boasting power ratings of 150kW and 210kW, respectively.
Several automotive bloggers have already unveiled spy photos showcasing the appearance of the upcoming EC6 model. In terms of its exterior design, the new vehicle retains the sleek fastback coupe SUV stance seen in the previous EC6 generation, with a body contour that is even more similar to its ET5 sedan.
Compared to its higher model (NIO EC7), the new EC6 appears shorter and more compact, featuring a lower overall body stance. However, it retains the key elements of NIO’s signature design, including the iconic long strip of daytime running lights, through-type taillights at the rear, and the distinctive trio of roof LiDAR and cameras, leaving none of these signature features behind.
The interior of the NIO EC6 has not been officially disclosed; it is expected that there won’t be significant differences from other models built on the NT2.0 platform. The general cockpit layout is expected to remain consistent with the new NIO ES6.
