Qin Lihong Responds
Regarding the rumors that circulated on the Internet yesterday about “NIO’s 866 lowering prices by 100,000 yuan,” Qin Lihong responded.
Qin Lihong stated that NIO has already begun preparing for the replacement of these three products. Currently, there are still some display and inventory cars under the 866 identification number, and there are some additional preferential policies according to their age and condition, but there is no “across-the-board price reduction” that outsiders have excessively interpreted.
Some people have overlapped NIO’s various measures and obtained the term “100,000 yuan price reduction.” Qin Lihong believes that this is not accurate. These clearance measures were not widely announced in advance in the form of public notices, and Qin Lihong said that the communication was not done well and therefore accepts the criticism.
Qin Lihong also said that some colleagues sold cars hastily in the past, and the communication was rushed, thus needing to be standardized.
Regarding the question of whether NPs are given for free to users, Qin Lihong also gave an answer:
“There is no universal policy of giving out NPs for free. NIO’s employees have that privilege. Some places have used NPs as a substitute form of display car discounts in the past two days, which caused debates, but this practice has been stopped as of tonight.”
