The NIO ET7, its flagship smart all-electric sedan, and its NIO Power DC Charger have won the Good Design Awards. NIO has been recognized as a visionary manufacturer, with the NIO ET7 and NIO Power DC Charger named amongst the best new car and transportation designs of 2021.
Driven by Design is one of the supporting virtues within NIO. The design of the EP9, which went on to become one of the world's fastest electric vehicles, was a building block of our design DNA and its principles of being pure, human, progressive, and sophisticated.
NIO's EP9 has broken lap records at multiple well-known circuits. Before its debut in 2016, our global design and engineering team worked extremely hard to beat the deadline and brought this extraordinary car to reality.
On July 21, Kris Tomasson, NIO’s VP of Design, was invited to keynote at the ArtCenter College of Design’s Virtual Car Classic. He discussed creating the NIO brand, how design plays a role in our logo and products, and his thoughts on the future of car design.
Long before metal meets our stamping machines in Hefei, designers and engineering teams poured over sketches and samples. They worked late at the whiteboard with one thought, how to create a superior user experience through thoughtful engineering and design.
