In addition, NIO has built a high-speed battery swapping network called the “6 vertical and 3 horizontal 8 major city clusters” in China. The third-generation battery swapping station and NIO’s 500kW supercharger have been put into operation. At the 2022 NIO Day, NIO released its third-generation battery swapping station.

In the first quarter of 2023, NIO’s research and development investment reached 3.08 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 74.6%. Li Bin stated in a conference call that NIO will continue to adhere to long-term competitive construction. NIO’s research and development investment for each quarter this year will be maintained at 3 billion to 3.5 billion yuan. The next few years will still be an important stage for the research and development and mass production of high-performance intelligent electric vehicle core technology and new products. This means that NIO’s research and development investment has entered a stable period.

It is worth mentioning that recently, Abu Dhabi investment firm CYVN Holdings invested $1.1 billion (approximately RMB 8 billion) in NIO, and the two parties have signed a share subscription agreement. Chairman Jassem Al Zaabi said: “Our strategic investment in NIO comes from our high recognition of NIO’s leading brand position in the intelligent electric vehicle market, innovative high-end products, and highly competent technology.”
