NIO EP9 Supercar
On November 21st 2016 and after almost 18 months of development in secret, Nio EP9 was launched along with the Nio brand in London at the Saachi gallery. I began working on a unique interface for this revolutionary vehicle in my first week at Nio.
EP9 was designed from the outset to challenge the perceptions of what a pure EV is capable of. As the record breaking car was to be made available for customer circuit rides the UI was developed to enhance the passenger experience and was inspired by the emergence of performance wearables and consumer electronics.
In November 2016 EP9 unofficial broke the Nordschleiff record.
In March 2017 EP9 broke the autonous lap record of the Circuit of the Americas in Texas.
In May 2017 the official Nordschleiffe record finally came.
The Grand Tour showcased the incredible performance of EP9. See how Richard Hammond reacted. From personal experience I can assure you he is not exaggerating.
One of the incredible perks of the job when working on a project so closely is that you have to sign the project off. This was a great day with the team shaking down the final EP9. Unfortunately I did not get the chance to drive EP9 but an LMP2 driver as my chauffeur is a pretty good day at the office.
