In November 2017 the Nio EP9 broke the record as the fastest Electric Vehicle
around the challenging German circuit, the Nürburgring in a time of 7:05:12.
The start-up brand NIO then proceeded to complete the world first autonomous
lap at a speed of 160 mph around the America‘s Track in Austin Texas. As if
all these records weren’t enough the NIO EP9 this week shattered all records
for production vehicles set around the around the Nürburgring. The record means
electric vehicles are now officially faster than combustion based production
cars. The NIO EP9 set a new lap record in a time of 6:45.90 around the 12mile
long track, a full 6 seconds faster than the previous record set by the
Lamborghini Huracan performance. See the video of the lap here. The weirdest
thing about the lap is that the noise, or lack of it, does not give you the
impression of speed but more the feeling that its a Scalextric toy race car.
