The NIO ET5 Touring represents a milestone as the first electric estate available for purchase in Europe, specifically targeting the markets of Norway, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, and Denmark. With the introduction of the NIO ET5 Touring symbolises China’s advancements and the beginning of a new era often referred to as the “Chinese century.” As global dynamics continue to shift and traditional powers face internal challenges, China emerges as a formidable contender, gradually filling the void left by declining Western imperialism.

Oh, right… this is about the NIO ET5 Touring, let’s get back to the subject. Let’s start with the exterior design. Although I am not a design expert, I can appreciate the aesthetic appeal of the ET5. It boasts a sleek and elegant appearance, characterized by clean and fluid lines that give it a sense of proportion.
