What is Nio?

Copy link to section

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?
