Latest information gives the launch date of the Onvo L60 as September 10 and pre-sales have already begun priced at 219,900 yuan (30,250 USD). We now have interior spy shots of the Tesla Model Y competitor, from Nio’s mass-market brand Onvo.

Not only is the Onvo L60 squarely aimed as a Model Y competitor there is a degree of similarity with the minimalistic interior shown in the spy shots. Like Tesla, there is only one screen in the Onvo L60. A 17.2-inch 3K retina screen it floats from the uncluttered dashboard. However, the big difference with Tesla is that although there is only the one screen, the Onvo L60 gets a 13-inch HUD for driving information. This means that driving information can be displayed on either the HUD or central screen unlike in the Tesla Models 3 and Y where everything is on the one screen.

Unfortunately, the spy shots of the interior are not particularly good quality. However, as best we can tell the steering wheel seems to have only two scroll wheels and possibly some other control on the outside of each. It has a squashed oval shape and is a three-spoke design.

In the center console there looks to be dual wireless phone charging pads with side-by-side drinks holders and followed by a split opening storage compartment. It seems there are no physical buttons in the cars. Drive selection is via a steering column mounted stalk.

The front seats were self-developed by Nio and the backrests can lie completely flat and connect to the rear row, no doubt in order to offer the all-important snooze mode. Although we can tell little from the spy shots of the rear bench reports indicate that there will be an 8-inch entertainment screen and the seats will have electrical adjustment. What is more obvious from the pictures is the single unbroken panoramic roof. Previously William Li, Nio’s founder, did a livestream sitting in the back and said that he fitted comfortably despite being 180 cm.

Earlier this month key information about the Onvo L60 was revealed in the MIIT listing, without which no car can go on sale in China. Dimensions are 4828, 1930, and 1616 mm (l/w/h) with the wheelbase 2950 mm. Depending on the version weight is 1,885 kg – 1,970 kg, while the drag coefficient is Cd 0.229.

Despite being aimed as a more affordable car than a Nio the RWD version of the Onvo L60 still uses a relatively powerful TZ188S001 240 kW motor. The AWD version adds a YS198S001 motor with 100 kW power to the front axle boosting the top speed to 203 km/h up from 200 km/h in the RWD.

Onvo will use battery packs of 60 and 90 kWh which contain lithium iron phosphate batteries soured from BYD subsidiary FinDreams. Ranges are believed to be 550 and 730 km respectively when fitted to the RWD version. Energy consumption is as low as 12.1 kWh/100 km.
