As a Chinese global tech startup, NextEv owns the NIO Formula E Team that participates in the FIA Formula E electric racing series. So when we got wind that NextEV was due to release an electric supercar, we couldn’t help but wonder how they would approach the newest sect of the electric car niche. Needless to say, the recent unveiling surpasses our expectations.

It’s called the NIO EP9, and it’s quite possibly the fastest electric car in the world. We say this because the EP9 set a new record for the fastest lap time around the famed Nürburgring Nordschleife EV ‘ring’. A feat like this, however, is something you’d come to expect from a vehicle with a megawatt (1360 horsepower) of boost. It hosts four electric motors with four gearboxes that propel the EP9 from 0-60 in 2.7 seconds and to 200km/h (124mph) in just 7.1 seconds, topping out at 200mph. Drivers will also find convenience in NIO’s swappable battery along with its ability to fully charge in 45 minutes and boast a range of 265 miles. There’s no official word on pricing though there are rumors this supercar could cost upwards of $1 million.
