NIO EP9 by NextEV: The fastest electric car ever
Developed by Chinese startup NextEV, the NIO EP9 recently set a world record lap time of seven minutes and five seconds at the Nürburgring circuit in Germany, making it the fastest electric car on Earth.
“The NIO EP9 by NextEV is a beast of a car with a design built to give it such incredible amounts of downforce, it could probably (and NextEV says it’s quite possible) drive upside down, without the danger of it falling off the track! Yes, this mammoth machine exerts more than 2 and a half tonnes of downforce at 150kmph. That’s almost twice the downforce of an F1 car, and roughly 3 times our Earth’s gravity.
The EP9 isn’t set to be available to the mass market. NextEV says it takes almost $1.2 million to build a single car, and only 6 are being built as of now.”Industrial Design Technology Vehicle Design Posted on December 22, 2016
