Like other battery packs from CATL, the dimensions of the 150kWh battery pack are 2062mm in length, 1539mm in width, and 185.6mm in height.

NIO, during the NIO Day 2020 event on January 9th, launched its flagship sedan, the NIO ET7, and introduced a 150 kWh semi-solid-state battery. It claims that this will enable the vehicle to have a range of over 1000 kilometers. The new Nio ES6 SUV can travel up to 930 kilometers when equipped with a 150-kilowatt-hour battery pack. Due to higher wind resistance, SUVs generally have higher energy consumption compared to sedans.
