NIO sales in China – September 2020


So far this year NIO sold:

  • ES6: 20,371
  • ES8: 5,988
  • EC6: 16
  • Total: 26,375 (up 114% year-over-year)

Cumulative sales reached 58,288.


The ES8 is still far from its record levels, achieved when the car was introduced with a huge order backlog, but it's already showing relatively decent results.


Interesting side news is that NIO's fast-charging network (60+ stations with roughly 430 stalls) is used mostly - more than 90% - by EVs from other manufacturers like Tesla.

The company is also delivering thousands of emergency charges with its mobile charging vans to various EVs stranded on the road.
