Nio unveils lower-cost ES6 electric SUV

The Chinese automaker has unveiled the ES6, a lower-priced SUV that will start at the equivalent of $52,000 — a sizeable $14,000 less than the ES8.

Up to 317 miles (510 km) of range from an 84-kWh battery pack

The starting model can reach 62MPH in a brisk 5.6 seconds, and should have a range of 255 miles on Europe’s NEDC testing cycle thanks to a 70kWh battery (there’s also an 84kWh option with a 298-mile range). Move up to the higher-end trims and you’ll hit that 62MPH mark in 4.7 seconds, with ranges between 267 miles and 317 miles depending on your battery choice.
