The Fastest Road Car Ever to Lap the Nürburgring is Currently the All-Electric NIO EP9

Engineering a vehicle with the Nürburgring in mind doesn’t always produce the most enjoyable on road driving experience, but it often results in one hell of a performance machine. The NIO EP9 electric supercar was already the fastest EV ever to grace the track, which is a feat in itself since the Tesla Model S proved itself incapable of maintaining full trust for the duration of the 14 mile track. However, after taking another stab at it, the NIO is claiming the EP9 is now the fastest production vehicle ever to grace the track gas or electric.

Key Takeaways:

  • The NIO EP9 electric supercar was already the fastest EV ever to grace the track.
  • In October 2016, we aimed to set a new lap record for an electric vehicle with our NIO EP9.
  • We’re also waiting on the official confirmation and documentation the EP9’s lap time in Nürburg, Germany.
