What is Nio?
Nio is a Chinese electric vehicle manufacturer focusing on battery and autonomous driving technology. Rather than building its cars, it has partnered with a state-owned auto manufacturer that produces its designs. The company also owns one of the original FIA Formula E teams and has a functioning battery-swapping operation in China.
Founded in 2014 and headquartered in Shanghai, China, Nio employs more than 7000 people worldwide. Its largest market is mainland China where it generates most of its revenue. Its business has spread in recent years and operates in parts of Europe, including Norway and Germany.
While electric vehicles are what the company is best known for, its battery-swapping stations have developed at rapid speed. Most electric vehicles have a short range because their batteries need to be recharged. Nio has a network of 900 battery-swapping stations covering thousands of miles in China, letting anyone with a compatible car swap out their drained battery, for a fully charged one.
How does Nio make money?
Nio makes money by selling electric vehicles, its battery swapping network, insurance, maintenance, and enhanced data packages. Although it offers several services and products, most of its revenue comes from EV sales. In 2021, 93% of Nio’s revenue came from selling cars.
What is Nio’s best selling product?
Nio’s best selling product is its ES6 model. Released in 2019, the mid-sized SUV is the company’s most popular car and 104,000 have been sold. The next best seller is the ES8, a full-sized SUV with 60,000 models.
