The new NIO EL6 – a smart all-round SUV

The forward-looking electric SUV is the latest expression of NIO’s design language. This is also shown in the interior – here, the innovative Nature Tech Material karuun® with its fine fibre structure sets stylish accents in the smart cockpit of the EL6.

The NIO EL6 symbolises the future of motoring with its impressive range, rapid acceleration and intelligent connectivity. The interior is akin to an open yet cocooning second living room. This is also where karuun®, a sustainable Nature Tech Material obtained from the rattan palm, is applied. Pure in aesthetics, progressive in functionality, every surface is crafted with purpose. Form and function, neither is compromised.

As the innovative Nature Tech Material is made from a rapidly renewable raw material that requires no chemical treatment , karuun® is more sustainable and environmentally friendly than synthetic materials. Its high strength, light weight and flexibility also has a positive impact on durability and fuel consumption. In the interior of the new NIO EL6, the innovative compound material sets the highest aesthetic standards and creates an elegant and comfortable atmosphere.
