It’s big on space, comfort, and, most importantly, smart technology. With dimensions that spell grandeur (5,325mm in length and a wheelbase of 3,250mm), it promises a commanding presence on the road.
First-Class Comfort Meets Innovative Design
NIO has gone all out with the interior design of the ET9. The four-seat layout includes what they call the ‘Sky Island’ and ‘Executive Bridge’, offering first-class comfort, especially for rear passengers.
The seats are a technological marvel in themselves, boasting 24 patented technologies. Imagine adjusting your seat with a simple click to find your perfect comfort spot – that’s the kind of luxury we’re talking about.
Technological Excellence at Its Core
The ET9 is not just about luxury; it’s a technological powerhouse. Housing over 100 NIO full-stack technologies, it’s a leader in innovation. The car features an intelligent chassis system unique in the world, promising a smooth ride even on the trickiest of terrains.
And when it comes to charging, the ET9 breaks records with its Full-Domain 900V Architecture, ensuring super-fast charging times.
Safety and Efficiency: A Top Priority
NIO has integrated flagship-level safety features in the ET9, meeting aviation-grade standards. The car’s intelligent system, powered by the Adam 2.0 super computing platform, excels in areas like autonomous driving and digital connectivity. This means not only a safer drive but also a smarter and more efficient one.

Revolutionizing Power and Charging Solutions
But wait, there’s more. NIO also introduced their fourth-generation Power Swap Stations (PSS 4.0) and a 640kW Liquid Cooled Power Charger. These innovations are set to enhance the EV charging experience significantly, with the PSS 4.0 being compatible with multiple brands and slashing swapping times by 22%.
A Commitment to Sustainability and Community
NIO’s not just about cars; they’re about community and sustainability too. At NIO Day, they launched the NIO Climate Action, committing RMB 50 million to combat climate change. And let’s not forget the user marketplace at the event, where sales were donated to charity – a beautiful blend of technology and human compassion.
