Yes, you heard it right: this Chinese EV car can shake off snow like a puppy.

It looks like something straight out of the Pixar movie Cars but this is completely real.

Chinese EV company, Nio, is delivering a feature that no one asked for, but might actually be useful.

For those living in regions with heavy snowfall, this feature is an absolute must-have.

Over the years, we have seen a lot of innovations like this in the automobile industry.

We have gone from odd concept cars to self-driving cybertrucks in a couple of years.

Now, let’s take a look at one such concept that will be making its way to the Chinese EV market next year.

Meet Nio ET9, the company’s ultra-luxurious electric sedan that is meant to compete against Audi, BMW, and Mercedes.

The company recently shared a new video of its upcoming ultra-premium ET9 sedan.

The video showcased a maneuver that can only be described as the car shaking off snow like a puppy.

The Chinese EV car was able to clear large chunks of snow off the windshield, roof, and rear window in just a few seconds.

Beats scraping your windshield on a cold morning.

It was all thanks to the ET9’s intelligent chassis system, known as SkyRide.

The system integrates steer-by-wire, rear-wheel steering, and a fully active suspension and costs $112,000.

According to the Chinese EV maker, the car can deliver smooth rides even on the most complex road conditions.

The company’s CEO, William Li, is known as China’s Elon Musk.

He revealed the ET9 at the Nio Day event in December 2023.

The EV car is currently available for preorder in China.

Deliveries are set to begin in the first quarter of 2025.

Hopefully, Li is not like his US counterpart and delivers to his customers on time.

The ET9 is not the only car to implement an out-of-the-ordinary maneuver.

GMC’s electric Hummer is also very well known for its pioneering ‘crab walk’ mode.

The mode allowed the car to move diagonally.

The crab mode feature was later adopted by many foreign car makers, including Chinese EV makers.

What will they think of next?
