The Company’s management will host an earnings conference call at 9:00 PM U.S. Eastern Time on March 24, 2022 (9:00 AM Beijing/Hong Kong Time on March 25, 2022).

NIO announced yesterday that delivered 6,131 vehicles during February 2022. February deliveries are often affected by the Chinese Spring Festival Hollidays where the factories usually close from January 31st to February 6th.

During the production suspension of the NIO-JAC manufacturing plant in the Spring Festival holiday from January 31 to February 6, 2022, the Company adjusted the production lines to prepare for the delivery of ET7 in March 2022.

On February 28, 2022, the Company received a letter of in-principle approval from the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited (the “SHEK”) for the secondary listing of its Class A ordinary shares by way of introduction on the Main Board of the SEHK with the trading expected to commence on March 10, 2022.


Deustche Bank analyst Edison Yu released on Monday a note reiterating Nio’s Buy rating and the $70 price target, representing an upside of 206% for the next 12 months. The analyst believes that the secondary listing should put away the delisting fear for the Chinese Ev manufacturer.

On Monday, Bernstein analyst Eunice Lee reiterated a Market Perform rating and $40.00 price target (down from $45) on NIO after the company unveiled that is set to offer its shares for trading in Hong Kong as soon as March 10th.

Lee sees the latest move as a positive step towards eliminating the delisting risks concerning ADRs on American Exchanges. After Hong Kong and Singapore, the analyst sees potential for Nio to be traded on Shanghai stock exchange in the future.

Also Citi Group’s Analyst Jeff Chung reiterated Nio’s price target of $87 with a Buy rating representing an upside of 315.47%.


The company announced recently the opening of its new NIO House located in Yueqing Bay, Zhejiang Province in eastern China. The Chinese EV maker has currently 44 Nio Houses across the globe and opened its first European one in September 2021 located in Oslo (Norway) — the country with the highest EV penetration.

Last week, NDS (Navigation Data Standard) Association announced the Chinese EV maker Nio as their new member. Martin Schleicher, NDS Chairman, describes Nio as a “strong Asian partner” that has a “future vision”. NDS offers a well-defined spec for how to store map data and it allows flexibility for customized user experiences. Its maps work worldwide and are globally adopted.
