NIO ES8 & 3-minute Battery Swap Station

Elliot takes the Nio ES8 out for a drive and to test out their 3 minute battery swapping service in this new episode.

How would you feel about an electric car which you could charge from 0-100% in 3 minutes at a cost of around £8? Sounds too good to be true? Let us introduce you to the NIO ES8.

This SUV might be big, but it’s also agile, and while its price tag reflects the refined design and impressive range, what’s really interesting is the battery swapping service offered to all new NIO customers, as standard. In this episode Elliot takes the ES8 out for a drive and shows the 3-minute Battery Swap Station in action.
