It looks like the all-electric supercar war is about to heat up in a huge way as NextEV debuts the NIO EP9. Obviously, it's going to need more than just a pretty face to rival the world's best and they've already broken some impressive records. One of the biggest ones is the Nüburgring record for EVs, which had the NIO EP9 set an incredible lap time of 7:05:12, which makes it the fastest EV to make it around the legendary 'ring. 

The car delivers one megawatt of power, which is equivalent to 1,360-hp. This allows for a 0-60 time of 2.7 seconds and a top speed of 194 mph. What's really impressive is the battery system, which is claimed to have a charging time of just 45 minutes and for track use, batteries can be swapped in just eight minutes and has a total range of 265 miles.
