Tesla’s Model 3 has a new rival in town. The all-new ET5 Electric Sedan is here with all new features and up to 1,000 kilometers in range. Will Tesla compete with this new vehicle or just keep what they have now?

Not only does it compete with Tesla, but it also is a rival to other electric sedans, such as the BMW i4. In fact, the ET5 has similar features to the ET7.

Tesla Vs. ET5 Electric Sedan

According to carscoops.com, it has a very familiar interior, as well as interior design. However, it has a more compact form than the ET7.

“Nio’s new entry-level EV is a modern-looking car with clean lines and a drag coefficient as low as 0.24, depending on the model,” they reported.

Tesla’s Model 3 has smaller dimensions than the ET5 model. Car Swoops report it being “184.8 inches long, 72.8 inches wide, and 56.4 inches tall with a 113.2-inch wheelbase.”

The new 2022 NIO ET5 Electric Sedan released a video to advertise their new vehicle.

“In regards to driving range, the ET5 can reach over 550 kilometers with the 75 KWH standard range battery,” NFS Motor Sport said.

CarScoops also reported that the carmaker said it can reach up to 62 miles per hour in just 4.3 seconds. On the other hand, “the in-house developed 4piston fixed calipers with aluminum casting. This will allow it to come to a complete stop in only 33.9 seconds from the same speed.”

The Right Time to Purchase the New ET5

Unfortunately, the ET5 isn’t available for purchase yet. But it is set to arrive at dealerships in September of next year. The wait is worth it with the sound of all these new and exciting features.

They have it going to be priced at $328,000 RMB. CarScoops said Nio recently confirmed that the vehicle has been engineered to meet the five-star C-NCAP and Euro NCAP standard rates.

Another fact is that Nio will release their larger ET7 in January 2022. So in the meantime, you can test drive this until the ET5 makes its way to dealerships in your area. CarScoops also stated that they are expanding their markets to the Netherlands, Germany, Norway, Sweden, and Denmark next year. And the plan is to add 22 more countries by 2025.

A lot is in store for this company in the next few years. Stay up-to-date with all things electric vehicles since the industry is rapidly growing. You never know what they’ll come up with next.

In case you’re in the market for a new car this year, definitely try to test-drive the ET5. However, we are still in a chip shortage from the pandemic, so act fast when they’re available!
