will showcase six models based on the latest NT 2.0 platform at the Shanghai auto show, with the all-new ES6 making its debut.

NIO (NYSE: NIO) will have the facelift of its previously popular ES6 SUV unveiled at the Shanghai auto show later this month, marking the first time the company has unveiled a new model at an auto show.

The company will showcase six models based on its latest NT 2.0 platform at the Shanghai auto show, with the all-new ES6 making its debut, it said in a post announcing March delivery figures on its WeChat account.

The upcoming biennial Shanghai auto show will be held from April 18-27, with the press days from April 18-19 and the professional visitors' days from April 20-21, while the general public can visit from April 22-27.

Notably, like the ES7 is known as the EL7 in Europe, the new ES6 will also be called the new EL6 in international markets, according to a press release from NIO.

The move still seems to be due to the dispute between NIO and Audi regarding the trademark rights of the ES name.

NIO App is currently showcasing eight models, including the ES8, ES6 and EC6 based on the NT 1.0 platform, and the new ES8, ES7, EC7, ET7 and ET5 based on the NT 2.0 platform.

The EC7 and the new ES8 were launched at NIO Day 2022 on December 24, 2022, and deliveries are set to begin in May and June 2023, respectively.

NIO did not provide any further information on the new ES6, but the model has appeared in a regulatory catalog in China in January.

On January 11, the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology released a list of models that will soon be allowed to be sold in China, and the new NIO ES6 was included.

The new NIO ES6 has a length, width and height of 4,854 mm, 1,995 mm and 1,703 mm, respectively, and a wheelbase of 2,915 mm, according to the model's filing page.

The model's LiDAR and camera setup are in line with the other current NIO models based on the NT 2.0 platform. Its rear end also features a through-tail lamp design similar to the ET7, rather than the split design of the current model.

The new ES6 is something to look forward to, as its predecessor was NIO's cheapest SUV, contributing the most sales for the company in a very long time.

From January to August 2022, the ES6 delivered 32,877 units, contributing 46 percent of NIO's total deliveries of 71,556 units during that period, figures monitored by CnEVPost from the company as well as the China Passenger Car Association (CPCA) show.
