CnEVPost Newsletter: Nio gets 1st partner on battery swap network sharing
The tie-up comes after Nio basically pulled out of a joint venture with Changan, marking the first external partner for Nio's iconic energy replenishment network.
Nio's shared battery packs will be the next generation of mass-market battery packs that support ultra-fast charging, and the battery swap experience for Nio customers will only get better, William Li said.
Shandong Weida was up 6 percent in Shenzhen at press time, and up about 20 percent over the past month.
Nio delivered 55,432 vehicles in the third quarter, slightly above the lower end of the guidance range of 55,000 to 57,000 vehicles.
Between November 1 and 19, Li Auto had 25,400 insurance registrations in China, Nio had 9,400, Xpeng had 10,400, Tesla had 39,300 and BYD had 129,700 units.
Tesla has raised the Model Y Long Rang's starting price in China by RMB 2,000, the fourth price hike in the past month, although the moves are for different models.
Li Auto is ramping up its efforts to develop chips in-house, working on both an AI inference chip for smart driving scenarios, and a SiC power chip for driving motor controllers, according to local media.
For orders placed from November 21, the expected delivery lead time for the two lower-priced versions of the Bao 5 is around 4-6 weeks, while the highest-priced version will be delivered from January.
The two parties are exploring the possibility of forming a joint venture to further support Stellantis' electrification strategy.
