Range anxiety has become a hot topic amongst transportation enthusiasts who are focused on how modern driving needs will be met with electric cars, but brands are responding with new solutions like the Nio ES8 that are intended to crush these concerns.
The electric SUV from the China-based startup will offer the impressive vehicle with an optional battery subscription service that allows them to swap out the existing power sources for new ones. This means that drivers will be able to upgrade their driving capabilities as new battery models become available rather than having to buy a new car. This could come as a game-changing service that will make consumers think twice about opting for a Tesla electric SUV.
The Nio ES8 features an electric motor on each of the axles for all-wheel drive, while 480 kilowatts from the two motors produce 643 horsepower and 619 pound-feet of torque.
