NIO aims to grow: new sub-brand for the electric car manufacturer

NIO aims to grow

The Chinese company NIO is carving out a prominent space in the electric car sector, thanks to an articulated and increasingly complete range as well as to the interesting battery swap service, also arriving in Europe (with the creation of a of ad hoc production that it will build and stations for the exchange to be deployed on the European territory).

The objectives of NIO do not stop there. The Chinese company intends to increasingly become a reference in the electric car market and to achieve this goal it intends to expand its range of action. NIO will focus on the low end and will do so by proposing electric cars from 15-30 thousand euros. To achieve this goal, essential for increasing sales volumes, NIO will create a new brand.

The company has very ambitious goals. By the end of the year, for example, NIO will launch the first solid-state battery capable of offering its vehicles the ability to reach a range of more than 1000 kilometers on a single charge. Furthermore, with the birth of the sub brand, the Chinese house should record further significant growth. More details on the project will arrive over the next few weeks.
