The birth of new brands of cars seems more common in recent years. The People’s Republic of China is where most come from, since its local market booming and the economic capital who treasure allows it. NIO is one of the startup that more weight is picking up in the country and as exponent of his work have the supercar EP9. This autonomous model has been to house the fame and money they needed and after this step is when they will launch definitively to make their models.
We know (because we do have several days to insist) that the Hall of the Shanghai Automotive will open its doors shortly. On this occasion NIO plays at home and therefore has to show to the audience, the Chinese appointment, what can do. Therefore since mark have released the first teaser for the Blue Sky, which seems to be the model that will reveal in Shanghai.
The only thing that we can see in this picture is the profile of the vehicle. In it what is striking is that it has a very marked SUV form. The lines that flow over the top of the wheel arches are very marked and accentuate the design which has this part. It is to imagine that the steps of wheels will have large and that game will be a unique design and size giant quasi alloy wheels.
If we look at the B-pillar of the model represented in the teaser, we can have a clue of what you want us to show NIO. Elucubrando much (though it could be real) it would result in doors with two types of opening system. On the one hand could talk about doors Type “suicide” (the same used by the outgoing generation of the Opel Meriva). On the other hand could have before us the second SUV on the market opening doors to use Type “gull wing” (Tesla Model X was the first).
Yet, still we do not have information about its propulsion, which will be electric with security system. We don’t have more details or photos that illustrate the final design of the model, even if Blue Sky is its definitive name. Therefore, you will have to wait to open its doors the Shanghai motor show and we can see it in person.
Patience, there is nothing.
