On Saturday, many NIO enthusiasts went to the EV maker’s Store in Beijing (China) to watch closely the recently revealed NIO ES7. As reported by EV on Friday, Beijing was one of the first cities to receive the SUV unveiled last Wednesday in a virtual event.
Alongside the new model, NIO also confirmed the highly anticipated 2022 versions of the older models and the new software versions with more features and a better performance.
Earlier today, the first photos and videos from the visitors started being uploaded on the Chinese social media platforms. Weibo user “海豚佩佩” shared the first 360º video of the NIO ES7:
While sharing his thoughts, the user said: “I originally wanted to buy ET7, but now I think ES7 is also good. Seeking truth from facts, the appearance has not improved much, but the configuration is very conscientious, especially the electric suction door of the whole car, the UWB digital key, the lidar, the soundproof glass of the whole car, and the upgraded digital cockpit, which is definitely much stronger than the current ES6.”
