China's electric hypercar breaks petrol-loving hearts

China's NextEV NIO EP9 has not only broken the electric car record around the Nurburgring, but the production car record too.

Yes, it's official. The petrol demise is well and truly in motion and if ever you thought that "electric" was inferior, you must surely now concede. Regularly, electric motors are beating petrol ones and China's NextEV Nio EP9 is the latest fully electric hypercar to embarrass petrol-guzzling Granddads.
