The Nio ET5 has a maximum power of 480KW (653hp). The total torque is 850nm. The 0-100km/h sprint (0-62mph) takes 3,9 seconds. The top speed is 200 km/h.
Battery, range, and charging
Nio ET5 has two battery options with different specifications. Below you see how this affects range and charging.
The battery has a gross capacity of 100kWh and a net capacity of 90kWh, meaning you have a 10kWh buffer for protection. (10,0%).
The WLTP range varies from 590 to 540 km (367-336 mi), depending on car options. Bigger wheels are an example of an equipment option that increases consumption and reduces the electric range. The consumption is between 15,3kWh/100km for the basic version and 16,7kWh/100km for the top trim version for the WLTP standard test. For more details about the range, see real-world data and range listing on this model’s range and consumption page.
The maximum DC charging speed is 126kW. A full charge from 0 - 100% would take 75 minutes, while a more common scenario of 10-80% would take 41 minutes. If you assume you lose 5 minutes driving per charge stop in addition to the charge time, the optimum charge area is from 1% to 44% resulting in an actual charge speed including time loss on 86kW. Each charge session would take 27 minutes and 2 seconds.
For the theoretical 1000km challenge, starting with a full battery and driving at 120km/h (75 mph), assuming optimal driving conditions and consumption of 23kWh/100km, 1000km will take 9 hours and 58 minutes to drive. This trip will require four charge session(s) charging from 1% to 40%. The total time lost for charging will be 98 minutes.
The battery has a gross capacity of 75kWh and a net capacity of 70,5kWh, meaning you have a 4,5kWh buffer for protection. (6,0%).
The WLTP range varies from 456 to 419 km (283-260 mi), depending on car options. Bigger wheels are an example of an equipment option that increases consumption and reduces the electric range. The consumption is between 15,3kWh/100km for the basic version and 16,7kWh/100km for the top trim version for the WLTP standard test. For more details about the range, see real-world data and range listing on this model’s range and consumption page.
The maximum DC charging speed is 140kW. A full charge from 0 - 100% would take 65 minutes, while a more common scenario of 10-80% would take 34 minutes. If you assume you lose 5 minutes driving per charge stop in addition to the charge time, the optimum charge area is from 7% to 74% resulting in an actual charge speed including time loss on 77kW. Each charge session would take 37 minutes and 57 seconds.
For the theoretical 1000km challenge, starting with a full battery and driving at 120km/h (75 mph), assuming optimal driving conditions and consumption of 23kWh/100km, 1000km will take 10 hours and 26 minutes to drive. This trip will require four charge session(s) charging from 8% to 65%. The total time lost for charging will be 127 minutes.
For level 1 and level 2 AC charging, the onboard charger supports up to 11KW charging. As a result, you can charge the battery 0-100% from home in about 8 hours and 10 minutes.
The location of the charge port is on the left rear side. This makes it easy for charge stations where you need to back up into the charger. The connector types vary between the different markets. This model uses CCS Combo 1 for North America and for Europe, CCS Combo 2. See full specifications for all markets.
This model support battery swap. Battery swap means you can drive to a unique battery swap station and get the battery replaced with a new battery with 90% SOC. The battery swap takes 7 minutes.
Dynamic steering is standard on the Nio ET5. Dynamic steering varies the steering ratio as a function of driving speed.
The rear and front brakes are cast-iron discs.
Regenerative braking is available through one-pedal driving combined with blended brakes. Automatic regen is not available in this model. At low speeds, the one-pedal drive mode will keep the car creeping forward. You can adjust how strong regen you get when you lift the foot. There are three levels.
You can choose between 10 different paint colors when ordering this model. Additionally, you can choose between 2 wheels with sizes from 20 to 21 inches.
There is only one roof for this model. The standard roof has a large panoramic roof extending from the front to the rear. This glass makes the car’s interior feel more spacious and bright, which can improve the mood and comfort of the occupant. The glass is toned to protect against heat from the sun.
You can choose between different types of seat materials and interior styling. The seat layout is the traditional five seats with two in front and three in the rear.

Front Cross Traffic Assist is a optional driver assist system that helps drivers detect oncoming traffic when crossing an intersection or turning left or right from a stopped position.
Rear Cross Traffic Alert is a standard driver assist system that uses sensors to detect approaching vehicles from the side when backing out of a parking space or driveway.
Forward Collision Warning is a optional driver assist system to help drivers avoid or mitigate frontal collisions.
The Nio ET5 has an automatic emergency braking as a standard system. This system helps prevent or mitigate collisions by applying the brakes autonomously if the driver fails to react to an impending collision.
Automatic emergency steering is a optional driver assist system designed to help drivers avoid collisions by automatically steering the vehicle in an emergency.
Blind-spot monitoring is a standard driver-assist system. This side assist system helps to detect traffic in blind spots.
The Nio ET5 offers driving automation on level 1 or 2, depending on the equipment level.
