China has become one of the largest manufacturers of electric vehicles, both in quantity and quality, with lower prices. And soon they will arrive in Europe with the NIO ET7, a vehicle that offers one of the highest driving ranges.
The Chinese manufacturer NIO will make its first deliveries later this year, from the port of Shanghai. According to the Hybrid and Electric website, deliveries to European customers are scheduled for the last quarter of the year. The country that will receive them will be Germany, unlike a previous model called NIO ES8, which arrived in Norway, where they were well received.

This is how the Chinese company would face directly consolidated companies such as Mercedes Benz, BMW and Audi, the three most recognized German brands. This vehicle would also be arriving in the Netherlands, Sweden and Denmark later this year.
What is special about this vehicle? The four-door trunk car, characteristic of a sedan, has an autonomous driving system with LiDAR, 11 cameras and 17 radars; all managed by four powerful processors. It also has a 5G connection, WiFi 6, V2X connectivity.
But if there is something to highlight, it is its autonomy. In China it is offered with three battery options: one with 75 kWh, one with 100 kWh and one with 150 kWh. This latest model is the most striking because it offers 1,000 kilometers of autonomy. The cost is 66,000 euros, that is, about 263,053 soles.
