Among the EVs that I have seen the most, is Tesla. Recently, if I look past Tesla, Lucid, and Rivian, I can see that NIO is not bad either. What I like about NIO’s technology is that it takes EVs from 0% to 100% in 3 minutes. The swapping system is currently available in NIO ES8.
(I think other NIO models may be available) His idea is that the EV will be equipped with a battery that can be easily replaced instead of charging. If you can’t wait for the battery to charge, just go to the swap station and replace the battery. The whole process only takes 3 minutes. The battery charging fee is only the amount of the remaining kW of the battery minus the additional amount. NIO currently has this Battery Swap Service. It is free for NIO First Owners. Currently, there are more than 1,000 NIO Battery Swap Stations, and according to 2020 surveys, the NIO Battery Swap system has been tested and used more than 500,000 times. Anyway, it is quite cool to see technologies that can easily change batteries in addition to EV charging.
The NIO ES8 is an EV that costs around $50,000. It has a 400kW battery and is said to be able to go around 500 km on a single charge. Rolls Royce abandoned V12 engines and entered the world of EV (electric) cars for the first time with Specter. Specter is not Rolls Royce’s first EV. 2012, 2016 Rolls Royce EV In 2012, the Phantom was an EV Prototype, and in 2016, if the Specter is a completely redesigned prototype, the Range will be over 300 miles. It is strange to talk about the Range in Rolls Royce. I don’t know if this car can drive even 100 miles a year.
The coupe is based on the Phantom Coupe with a completely new design, but the size is about the length of the Mercedes Maybach Long Wheel Based, and the Rolls Royce is called the Super Coupe. The exterior design of the Specter is obvious from the pictures. 22 LED lights have been added. Its Day Running Light is one of the designs that make the Specter EV-oriented. Since the Rolls Royce Specter is an EV, the Drag Coefficient is said to reach 0.25. Even the Spirit of Ecstasy, which can be said to be the signature of Rolla Royce, has been tested for 830 hours to improve aerodynamics. Although it is an EV, Rolls Royce Specter does not add many new technologies like other cars. Interior tech is significantly different from other Rolls Royces, so the dials will be fully digital. It is said that the price will start from more than 300,000 dollars.
