Experience the ET9’s Seamless Drive-By-Wire Chassis

The Most Hair-Raising Ride Ever!

Chinese automobile producer Nio recently shared a video of their one-of-a-kind remote-controlled structure in motion and it is difficult to not hold admiration. The video presents an absolutely fresh Nio ET9 prototype being exposed to an extreme high-frequency jostle examination, a routinely deployed component in the exhaustive evolvement regimen all brand-new vehicles must endure.

The exclusive variation is that automobiles are generally tested in laboratories with machines fashioned expressly for this purpose. For this recording, Nio simply tossed in water to display the regularity of the shocks this vehicle was facing on a theoretical course. In this illustration, it appears like that supposed route is more similar to a washboard or a rugged route splashed with a collection of ripples, if you wish.

The physique remains incredibly solid despite the shock absorbers and wheels enduring rigorous punishment. It is remarkably stable; Nio even placed two beverages on the bonnet, yet remarkably, they never moved an inch!

NIO ET9 - SkyRide, NIO Intelligent Chassis System

Last year, Nio presented the ET9 to compete against ultra-luxury automobiles like the Mercedes-Maybach GLS, Rolls-Royce Cullinan, and Bentley Bentayga. This gave Chinese purchasers a domestic alternative to the expensive imported cars without driving the cost up with tariffs. It’s noteworthy that others identified this opening in the market before Nio. YangWang’s luxury U8 came out at the beginning of 2023.

The unveiling of the ET9 a month ago was greeted by Nio making meagre mention of its suspension system. Termed ‘SkyRide’, it is hooked up to a remarkable auto-grade chip capable of processing six trillion instructions each second.

Though not a novel concept, it has persisted for quite some time. It has withstood the test of time and proven to be of significant value. This longevity can be attributed to its usefulness; its ability to offer individuals an advantage.

The vivacious display of Nio’s assembly evokes the Bose-crafted electromagnetic suspension from the 1980s. It can also be altered depending on the roadway, allowing for the car to remain level through turns and curves. A limited few Lexus LS400s were setup with Bose’s technology that you can view in testing videos below. This arrangement was seen as too much weight so production never took place. Subsequently, rights to this product were sold off to ClearMotion yet nothing has occurred since then.

The Nio ET9 undoubtedly contains a much more sophisticated assembly when it comes to wiring, mirroring that of the Tesla Cybertruck’s steer-by-wire system. This arrangement sorts itself in conjunction with the AutoFrame, and thanks to this chip, the performance of these two enterprises surpasses that of the regular time it takes for a signal to travel from the mind to one’s body!

Nio is certainly no novice on the Chinese scene. In 2017, it stirred up a flurry of attention after its EP9 creation established a Nurburging lap record for production cars—only three months after the Lamborghini Huracan took the laurel from the Porsche 918. Nowadays, Nio has garnered notoriety for its battery-swapping innovations, which mitigates a lot of range anxiety.
