The company designs, manufactures, and sells smart and connected premium electric vehicles, driving innovations in next-generation technologies in connectivity, autonomous driving, and artificial intelligence.

NIO sells vehicles through its own sales network, including NIO Houses, NIO Spaces, and their mobile application.

Its SUV model include the ES8, ES6, and EC6, which range in price from $50,000 to $100,000 (similar to Tesla’s offerings).

NIO’s early investors include Chinese giants like Tencent, Baidu, Lenovo, and even the American venture capital firm Sequoia.

So far in 2020, NIO has risen significantly along with TSLA.

That would represent an additional gain of 53% to 92% from here.
