Model Lineup

Currently, the NIO lineup includes only new or refreshed models, all based on the NT2.0 platform. It's expected that the switchover from NT1.0 to NT2.0 will be completed soon, once the new EC6 will be introduced (in September, according to the Chinese media).

NIO Technology (NT2.0) platform:

  • Crossover/SUV: new ES6, EC7, ES7, new ES8
  • Sedans: ET5/ET5T, ET7
    *in Europe ES6 is EL6, ES7 is EL7

NIO Technology (NT1.0) platform (retired):

  • EC6, ES6, ES8

Some of the models are also exported to Europe (but the scale of export is relatively low, compared to domestic sales).

It's worth noting that all NIO electric cars are compatible with the company's in-house battery swap stations, deployed through main routes and in metropolitan areas.

By the end of 2023, the company would like to have more than 2,300 battery swap stations (up from 1,600 as of the end of July).
