NIO: 10 Billion Kilometers Pushed, 20 Million Battery Swaps


Plainly NIO has been rolling out massive information faster and faster. It simply retains hitting new large milestones and innovating on its distinctive expertise. Previously few weeks, it has reached 10 billion kilometers pushed throughout its buyer automobile fleet, and it has surpassed 20 million battery swaps. Extra gorgeous stats and information of technological progress are beneath.

NIO Battery Swap Community Covers Beijing-Taipei Freeway

NIO’s in depth battery swapping community in China retains rising and rising, together with preliminary protection of the Beijing-Taipei freeway going from northern to southern China. “On April 23, NIO’s battery swap station community accomplished preliminary protection of the G3 Beijing-Taipei freeway with 21 battery swap stations alongside the route,” CnEVPost writes. “By now, NIO has accomplished protection of 5 main highways connecting to Beijing, the opposite 4 being the G1 Beijing-Harbin freeway, the G2 Beijing-Shanghai freeway, the G4 Beijing-Hong Kong-Macau freeway and the G5 Beijing-Kunming freeway.”

NIO — 10 Billion Kilometers of Driving

NIO automobiles have pushed 10 billion kilometers, in line with the corporate. NIO provides that 60% of its drivers have used battery swapping stations. The corporate now has 1,383 battery swapping stations throughout China and Europe. The Chinese language EV startup has grown quick, and so has its battery swapping community.

“NIO customers achieved the ten billion kilometer distance landmark in 1,762 days for the reason that model’s launch. Underlining its development in latest months, it had taken lower than 28 months from launch for NIO to succeed in the primary billion kilometers when there have been simply 150 Energy Swap Stations. Only a additional 31 months on from that first achievement, it has added one other 9 billion kilometers.”

Massive Battery Swapping Stats, And Greater Plans

Earlier in April, earlier than the ten billion kilometer milestone, NIO carried out its 20 millionth battery swap. Spectacular. A NIO battery swap takes place each 1.6 seconds in the intervening time. And the expertise is barely getting higher. “NIO’s Third Era Energy Swap Station, able to 408 swaps per day, up 30 per cent on at the moment’s capability, entered service this month.” A battery swap already took lower than 5 minutes, akin to filling up a fuel tank — however cleaner and fewer smelly.

Whereas 1,383 battery swap stations might sound like quite a bit, the corporate intends so as to add 1,000 extra in China and 70 extra in Europe simply by the tip of this yr, 2023!

This battery swapping functionality supplies NIO with a giant alternative not afforded to different EV corporations — the power to simply, conveniently, and convincingly decouple costly batteries from electrical vehicles. “Battery-as-a-Service (BaaS) uncouples the associated fee, upkeep, and upgradability of batteries from the automobile price, making EV possession extra interesting. In markets resembling Norway, roughly 95 p.c of customers opted for BaaS.” Wowza! Norway, probably the most superior and most mature EV market on the planet, is at all times a helpful place to see what the EV future might maintain. The truth that 95% of NIO patrons there are selecting the BaaS choice reveals us one thing. It doesn’t essentially imply that the market might be dominated by battery swapping in time, however it does present a starvation for this selection and that there’s a gap within the EV marketplace for … properly … for NIO, because it’s the one firm doing this.

Extra NIO Stats

There are actually greater than 320,000 NIO automobiles on the street. The corporate says that it “continues to progress from nascent producer to established OEM on sale in six international locations and set to be out there in as much as 25 international locations by 2025.”

Let’s shut with another milestone. Inside these 10 billion general kilometers drive, the corporate signifies than a couple of billion kilometers had been pushed utilizing NIO’s driver-assist options, “resembling NIO Navigate On Pilot, which fuses navigation, HD maps, and NIO Pilot.”

NIO is at the moment promoting its automobiles in 6 international locations — China, Norway, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, and Denmark. With 2025 only a yr and a half away, one has to marvel which 19 international locations the corporate plans so as to add to its worldwide community. Presumably, they’re largely European international locations, however maybe additionally the USA, Australia, and Canada?

It was lower than 5 years in the past that NIO began promoting its ES8 in China. How far the corporate has are available such a short while! It’s laborious to think about how a lot greater its on-the-road automobile fleet and battery swapping community might be in one other 5 years, or by 2030. We are going to certainly be monitoring it!

I do not like paywalls. You do not like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Right here at CleanTechnica, we applied a restricted paywall for some time, however it at all times felt flawed — and it was at all times powerful to determine what we must always put behind there. In idea, your most unique and finest content material goes behind a paywall. However then fewer folks learn it! We simply don’t love paywalls, and so we have determined to ditch ours.
