Nio’s Model Y competitor Onvo L60 will use batteries from BYD

Thanks to leaks by netizens of Onvo brand information we now know a lot more about Nio’s mass-market brand. The first model the L60 is designed to compete with the Tesla Model Y. Together with battery information we now know some of the other key specifications.

As speculated battery packs have been confirmed to be 60 and 90 kWh for the Onvo brand, which was previously known by the Alps codename. The smaller pack uses lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries produced by BYD subsidiary FinDreams whereas the larger packs use NCM cells from CATL. Although compatible with Nio’s third generation battery swap stations the thickness of the pack has been reduced to free up more space inside the car. Pictures show the car with both a fast and slow charging port.

According to the netizen on Weibo the Onvo L60 will be highly efficient. Not only does the car use a 900V silicon carbide platform but due to the coupe shape the drag is very low. These combined with being relatively lightweight mean that the L60 should have better efficiency (kWh/100 km) than the Model Y. Reportedly the car has a new generation self-developed electric motor which ensures strong power output.

At the front the Onvo L60 rides on MacPherson strut suspension while at the back it has a five-link independent setup.

Inside the netizen claims the quality is nearly as good as the Nio brand. On the dashboard is a central control screen similar to the one in the forthcoming Nio ET9. Powering the cockpit is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8295 chip.

The Onvo L60 is expected to sell for around 220,000 yuan (30,500 USD) and with the battery as a service option an even lower 170,000 yuan (23,550 USD). Nio is targeting sales of 20,000 per month. We expect the car to be revealed later this month with sales commencing in the third quarter of the year, followed by deliveries in the fourth quarter.
