CnEVPost Newsletter: NIO cuts prices for all models; ET5 Touring to launch on Jun 15
Including the battery, the starting price of NIO ET5 is reduced to RMB 298,000 and the new ES6 is RMB 338,000.
NIO has been discussing this adjustment internally for a long time, and as of 3 am today the NIO team was still working on it, William Li said.
The NIO ET5 Touring offers more trunk space while improving the high driver's seat that the regular ET5 was complained about. The key now is the price.
The launch event of the ET5 Touring will start at 19:00 Beijing time on June 15. Show cars are already available in NIO stores and deliveries in China will start on June 16.
