CnEVPost Newsletter: China EV deliveries; Tesla's revamped Model 3 pre-sales
Nio's lower deliveries in August may be related to a brief production suspension of its F1 plant in late July through early August for upgrades.
Nio is offering 30 free battery swaps, an online mall discount coupon worth RMB 2,000, and 1 year free usage of NOP+ to customers who buy its vehicles in September.
As of August 31, Nio has 134 Nio Houses and 1,800 battery swap stations worldwide.
The ES8 delivered 1,917 units in July, up 226.02 percent from June and a new high since December 2021.

In the January-August period, Li Auto's market share in China for NEVs of RMB 300,000 and above exceeded 30 percent, the company said.

The expected delivery date for the revamped Model 3 in China is the fourth quarter, and the higher starting price may come as a slight relief to Tesla's Chinese rivals.

The C11 series delivered more than 10,000 units, contributing more than 70 percent of Leapmotor's deliveries in August.
