car brands that offer revolutionary electric models with designs taken from science fiction movies do not cease to proliferate. Doing a bit of memory, we can remember the brand NextEV, a signature car that had capital chinese and that presented a while ago the hiperdeportivo EP9 with 1.360 cv of power and a couple of 6.333 Nm. This super car had four electric motors and managed to beat a record on the Nürburgring, marking a spectacular time of 7 minutes, 5 tenths, and 12 hundredths.
This same firm has changed its name to NIO and now instead of bringing us a vehicle cutting prestacional, presents to us a version for families. The NIO Eve Concept is a model, also cutting power, with silhouette type hatchback (giant) that only has two doors and offers space for up to seven occupants. To achieve this, the firm’s engineers have located the wheels of the car in the corners of the model thereby providing increased stability and space in the passenger compartment.
As you can see in the top video, its interior is minimalist to the max because it replaces almost all of the knobs and controls for screens and holograms. In addition, as an element of maximum comfort, with up to a folding table for passengers to enjoy while in the car (with technology driving autonomous) leads to the place you have chosen as a destination.
To develop this system of self-driving NIO has enlisted the help of Mobileye and NVidia. For now, the responsible NIO have not given many details of its operation, but it have been reported that almost all the functions of the vehicle can be made via the orders vowels. This would simplify a lot the work of the driver doing that ride in this vehicle it becomes something more simple.
technical Data or features are still unknown. However, if it came to the market with one of the engines of the EP9 would be around 340 hp and a few interesting 1.583 Nm of torque. Autonomy we do not know well, but NIO has been reported the first units could be rolling through the streets of half the world as soon as in the year 2020; what Will be reality?
