2019 NIO EP9
Another example of hypercars going electric, the EP9 is the first car from NIO — a brand created in 2014 by Chinese auto company NextEV. Designed primarily for track use, the EP9 has a carbon-fiber cockpit and chassis; the car’s incredible downforce means translates to a hypercar capable of 3G cornering (we’re talking centrifugal force, not phone networking). The EP9’s battery packs are located on either side of the car and can be charged in as little as 45 minutes. Only 16 EP9s have been built at a price of $1.48 million. NIO plans to eventually use the technology in a line of consumer vehicles, although no word on when that will happen.
