NIO's new car ET5: equipped with AR/VR application

On December 18 ,the Electric-automaker NIO has unveiled its fifth mass-production model, the ET5, a mid-size smart electric sedan.

Carrying on the concept of the second living room, the interior of the ET5 is sophisticated with a warm touch. Clean+ sustainable fabric forms a relaxing cocooning ambiance, and improves the acoustic performance of the cabin. The smart invisible air vents keep the instrument panel visually neat and delicate. Entering and exiting will always be at ease with the soft-close doors with frameless windows and flush door handles, and the UWB digital key and smart key.

NIO ET5 comes with the latest NIO Autonomous Driving (NAD). With NIO Aquila Super Sensing and NIO Adam Super Computing, the car will gradually achieve a safe and reassuring autonomous driving experience in scenarios such as highways, urban areas, parking and battery swapping.

The ET5 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds. With NIO's inhouse-developed high-performance 4-piston fixed calipers with aluminum casting, its braking distance from 100 km/h to a complete stop comes down to 33.9 meters. With a drag coefficient as low as 0.24, and the new-generation high-efficiency electric powertrain empowered by the SiC power module, the ET5's CLTC range reaches over 550 km with the 75 kWh Standard Range Battery, over 700 km with the 100 kWh Long Range Battery, and over 1,000 km with the 150 kWh Ultralong Range Battery.

PanoCinema is the panoramic and immersive digital cockpit on the ET5, featuring AR and VR technologies. NIO has partnered with NREAL, an innovative AR device company, to jointly develop AR glasses exclusive to NIO, which can project an effective screensize of 201-inch at 6 meters. NIO also collaborates with Nolo to jointly develop the NIO VR Glasses, with ultra-thin Pancake lenses, realizing binocular 4K display effect. The 10.2-inch HDR instrument cluster further boosts the vividness of images. Enabled by the cutting-edge hardware, continuous software development and content creation, elevated by the all-new 256-color curtain ambient lighting and Dolby Atmos 7.1.4 surround sound system, PanoCinema creates an exclusive space where users can indulge all their senses.

The NIO AR glasses, weighing only 76g, which is currently the lightest mass-produced AR glasses, with a retina resolution of 49ppd, a refresh rate of 90Hz, and support for 3DoF spatial positioning technology. The visual experience is equivalent to a 201-inch large screen at 6 meters, or a 134-inch large screen at 4 meters.
