Nio is perhaps the most promising Chinese car manufacturer that hopes to gain a significant share of the electric car market here in the Netherlands. For this, it comes with the fairly hefty ET7, which we were already able to drive. It also comes with the mid-range ET5. With a 100 or even 150 kWh battery pack, it must prove its added value with a particularly spacious range. But there is still something in the barrel, as it turns out. In China, someone spotted an ET5 with a station wagon butt and took it he on social medium Weibo posted a video, which we came across via carnewschina.
The ET5 in question is tightly packed, but the shape of the rear lights, among other things, is reasonably visible and a shot of the nose also makes it clear that it is really a Nio. As far as is known, it is the first sign of life of this variant of the ET5. You can bet that Nio is aiming his arrows at Europe with this. In our part of the world, the station wagon is somewhat on the decline, but the demand for it is greater than, for example, in China itself. Moreover, with such a car, Nio would be entering fairly new territory and could potentially quickly gain a significant market share. Although we already know the Porsche Taycan Sport Turismo, it is considerably higher in the market than the ET5. There is no (ex-factory) station wagon of the Tesla Model 3, the intended competitor of the ET5.
The Nio ET5 will be available in the Netherlands in April 2023, this station wagon will logically take a little longer. Earlier this week we were able to report the prices of the ET5 and its bigger brothers ET7 and EL7.
