NIO EP9 electric supercar sets a new world record for the fastest self-driving car

NextEV’s NIO EP9 electric supercar has set a new world record for the fastest self-driving car at Circuit of the Americas (COTA) in Austin, Texas. On February 23, the NIO EP9 drove autonomously without any interventions, recording a time of 2m 40.33s at a top speed of 160 mph. The same day, the NIO EP9 also beat the fastest COTA lap time for a production car with a driver, achieving a lap time of 2m 11.30s and reaching a top speed of 170 mph. The technology and software which delivered the world’s fastest autonomous lap was developed by the engineers at NIO U.S. headquartered in Silicon Valley. This tremendous feat was accomplished from start to finish in just 4 months. The fastest electric car in the world just set a new world record. NIO EP9 is now the fastest autonomous car ever. https://t.co/PelcACH6ya pic.twitter.com/M3F5TqcUmY — NIO (@NIOSocial) February 27, 2017 A f...
