In 2023, NIO will add 1,000 new battery swapping stations.

NIO announced officially that its target for battery swap station construction in 2023 has been raised from the original 400 to 1,000 newly built stations!

It is worth noting that NIO has currently built a total of 1,315 battery swap stations. To achieve the goal of adding 1,000 new stations within a year, it will not be an easy task for NIO.

Therefore, by 2023, NIO will have built more than a cumulative total of 2,300 battery swap stations, including approximately 600 urban battery swap stations which will focus on cities and counties in the third- and fourth-tier markets with a certain user base but no battery swap stations, and approximately 400 highway battery swap stations, which will cover the battery swap network of 9 verticals, 9 horizontals, and 19 major city clusters.

So, do you think NIO can achieve this “small goal”?
