NIO and Guangyi cooperation upgraded, the world’s first smart dimming black and gray EC sky screen on SUV EC7

It is learned on December 28 from China Business Network, on December 24, 2022, NIO Day was held at Hefei Binhu International Convention and Exhibition Center. It was announced that NIO’s intelligent electric flagship coupe SUV EC7 can be equipped with a new generation of black and gray intelligent dimming canopy as an option.

Guangyi Technology will provide the core color-changing material black-gray electrochromic film for its smart dimming sky. This is another important cooperation between the two parties on dimming products since NIO’s smart electric medium and large SUV ES7 was equipped with Guangyi all-solid-state automatic anti-glare rearview mirror.

This time, the EC7 model is the first to be equipped with Guangyi black and gray dimming canopy. It is also the first time in the world that the electrochromic canopy glass adopts black and gray neutral base color. The two parties will jointly promote new material technology innovation, empower the new energy vehicle industry, and bring users a smarter and better life experience.

As one of the leading brands of domestic new energy vehicle companies, NIO is leading the transformation of smart electric vehicles. Almost every model released by NIO will become the vane of the car circle, and the secret of its success is its strong innovation strength. This time, NIO is equipped with the world’s first black-gray EC dimming canopy technology, which is not only another verification of NIO’s innovative strength, but also NIO’s recognition of the innovation of Guangyi dimming products. The two parties will work together to create a win-win situation, create more valuable products, and work together to improve user experience.

As one of the new models of NIO Day 2022, EC7 is the flagship model of the NIO EC series. Every angle and every detail interprets the elegance of NIO to the extreme! The intelligent dimming panoramic canopy equipped with the EC7 this time adopts the third-generation flexible all-solid-state electrochromic technology of Guangyi, which is the first time in the industry to adopt a neutral base color of black and gray. The total energy isolation rate is 86.3%. It intelligently senses ambient light, actively and adaptively adjusts light transmittance, and maintains the most comfortable state at all times. This is the embodiment of NIO’s pursuit of elegance.

The intelligent dimming canopy equipped on EC7 is a major technological breakthrough in the field of electrochromic technology. The brand-new material explored from more than 1,000 molecular structures realizes the uniform absorption and change of the entire spectrum of visible light from 380 nm to 750 nm. In appearance, it presents a black and gray high-grade texture. At the same time, it has excellent sun protection, heat insulation, and anti-glare performance. The light inside the car is always soft and the vision is always clear, providing users with a perfect driving experience in all directions.

As a partner of NIO EC Sky Screen, Guangyi Technology is a global leader in electrochromic technology and the only national high-tech enterprise in the world that can realize mass production of electrochromic panoramic sky screens. It masters the world’s exclusive electrochromic materials and technologies through full-stack self-development, adopts a new high-efficiency roll-to-roll coating technology, achieves efficiency and cost reduction, and realizes the expansion and scale process of electrochromic technology application fields.

The R&D and launch of the black-gray EC sky screen product has greatly enriched the product form of electrochromic technology, and fully demonstrated Guangyi’s high-level research and development strength and outstanding product performance.

In the future, Guangyi will also continue to focus on the research and development of all-solid flexible EC thin film technology, continuously improve product performance, create high-quality intelligent electrochromic products, promote the process of new energy automotive glass photothermal management solutions, and lead the new upgrade of new energy smart travel methods.
