NIO is still producing the all-electric ES6 in very small numbers. In its debut month (June) 413 units were sold, while in July 673 units were delivered to customers.
What makes the all-electric NIO ES6 special is its 84 kWh battery pack made with NCM 811 battery cells from CATL. The battery pack has an energy density of 170 Wh/kg, which puts it on pair with the Tesla Model 3 (estimated at 168 Wh/kg).
The NCM 811 designation means that the cathode besides lithium contains nickel, cobalt and manganese in a composition ratio of 8:1:1.
