“Tesla killer” NIO: share price, battery, range compared – China Cars

Tesla is flying its e-car into space for PR, building giga-factories around the world, and its stock price is putting the fear of God into established brands. Now comes NIO with new announcements: Battery ranges of 1,000 km in 2022 (NIO ET7 model) and quick battery swaps, rather than long charging times. For comparison, Tesla Model S currently manages a range of about 650 km. Bloomberg already calls NIO the “Tesla Killer”. But Tesla itself is the “killer” for established car brands. An industry is in upheaval and 600+ companies from China are now emerging. Shares, prices and problems / solution of the companies for e-cars in terms of battery exchange and range of the cars, here you can find an overview of the state of affairs: Tesla vs NIO & China Cars on the rise.

NIO vs Tesla: Cars from China

Electromobility is the future. Fossil fuels have had their day. Whether it’s the next 10 years or the next 50 years, the goal is clear: electrification. With the increasing efficiency of renewable energies, the combination of renewable energies and electric automobility is the winner.

Pioneer Tesla: S-E-X-Y, Gigafactories and BitCoin

Tesla is the absolute pioneer when it comes to electric cars. With its models, from the small wagon to the large SUV, Tesla has experienced a great wave of success worldwide. The models, S, 3, X and Y add up to, you get the picture, the word: Sexy.

Apple founder Steve Jobs’ motto fits this:

Stay hungry, stay foolish

Meanwhile, Tesla is building its plants, or giga-factories, around the world. Tesla teaches the fossil giants what the future can look like. The mix of spirit and know-how makes the brand so strong. Tesla was also the first car to go into space, with Musk’s rocket company SpaceX.

Just last week, Tesla got into bitcoin, with over 1.5 billion in volume. The Bitcoin so also soon be accepted as a means of payment.

  • Electric car pioneer
  • Worldwide expansion
  • Further investments in the future

Reason enough to take a look at the electric car mobility market.

Because there are many new players coming to the market in China!

600+ companies from China are coming

There are now over 600 companies in China involved in electric car mobility. “China Cars”, summarized as a claim.

While the Middle Kingdom initially relied on foreign partners such as VW, production now functions independently. The manufacturer NIO in particular is attracting a lot of attention. CEO and Chairman William Li, who can also be seen later in an interview, is currently driving the brand forward worldwide.

What is the difference between NIO and Tesla?

How do NIO and Tesla differ?

Problem 1: Battery charging time

Especially charging the battery is a big problem at the moment. Currently, you have to drive to charging stations and then wait for an hour. For many, such long waiting times are not an option. NIO therefore offers direct battery replacement, in a fast process. This way, owners of electric cars only have to wait a few minutes and a fresh battery is already inserted into the car.

  • Tesla: Charge battery by cable (30-90 minutes)
  • NIO: Battery exchange at the vehicle (5 minutes)

The concept: battery subscription, instead of purchase. If you extrapolate the daily charging time, quickly a good investment.

15x loading per month:

  • Tesla: 450 – 1350 minutes
  • NIO: 75 minutes

In fact, direct battery swap is not a new idea from NIO! Tesla already had your direct exchange of batteries in concept in 2015. However, Tesla was way ahead of the curve with that at the time. NIO can now get great PR out of it.

Current solution, charging stations and cables:

Problem 2: Range (power)

The second important aspect is the power of the battery. The more powerful the battery, the further the car or electric scooter or motorcycle can go.

NIO promises a battery range of 1,000 kilometers (for 2022) and attacks Tesla’s Model 3 and Model S directly. NIO seems to have the best technologies at the moment and reports of new top performances are constantly coming in. Currently, there are also plans for an SUV that can cover over 1,000 km on a single charge.

  • Tesla Model S: 647 km
  • NIO ET7: 1,000 km (Important: Announcement for 2022!)

Future: electric mobility (VW, BMW, Toyota & Co.)

The “giants” also see the trend towards electromobility. In the meantime, of course, the big car companies are following suit, whether VW or Toyota. Electric automobility is on the rise and here you can find charts and price trends summarized once again.

Interview with William Li (CEO) – Bloomberg

Bloomberg Interview (Youtube) – Chinese electric vehicle maker NIO began shipping its new EC6 model last week. The whole thing happened quickly, just about two months after it started taking pre-orders for the battery-powered SUV.

Chairman and CEO William Li discussed demand for the company’s third model in an exclusive interview with Bloomberg’s Tom Mackenzie at the Beijing Auto Show over the weekend. (Removes inaccurate translation of 2Q specific gross margins).
