Li Bin: NIO will continue to increase R&D investment in the layout of charging and swapping networks

Phoenix Technology News, April 30, in the first quarter of 2021, NIO delivered a total of 20,060 ES8, ES6 and EC6 vehicles, a year-on-year increase of 422.7% and a month-on-month increase of 15.6%. It is reported that the demand for orders continues to grow, and the main challenge in the second quarter is still the supply chain risk caused by the global chip shortage. It is estimated that the total delivery volume in the second quarter of 2021 will be between 21,000 and 22,000. The purchase rate of 100-degree battery packs exceeded expectations, with over 10,000 being used. Li Bin said that since the launch of the 100-degree battery pack, it has been recognized and the purchase rate has exceeded expectations. In 418, NIO also officially opened the booking for the flexible upgrade of the 100-degree battery pack annually, and will officially open the service on June 6. Following the positive cash flow of operating activities in 2020, NIO will continue to increase investment in research and development as planned, and accelerate the deployment of charging and swapping networks and offline service channels.
