NIO ET7, the sedan uveiled during NIO Day 2020 (held in January 2021) finally started to being delivered last week, on March 28. According to NIO’s March deliveries numbers, the company sold a total of 163 ET7 units on the first 4 days. Just a couple days after the Deliveries report, a video leaked on Weibo shows that NIO has already some hundreds of Et7 models ready to deliver in April.

During NIO’s Earnings Conference Call, NIO’s CEO unveiled that the ET7 orders numbers are much more than those reported by media (15,000 units). “It is actually much more than the media report. For the ET7 market segment, we can see some other benchmarks. For example, the BMW 5 Series, Audi A6 and the Mercedes C-Class. ET7 has the similar pricing as the target group which sells the product as well, especially regarding the BMW 5 Series.” — William Li stated.

In March, the EV maker delivered a total of 9,985 units in China during March 2022, representing an increase of 37.6% year-over-year. The deliveries consisted of 9,822 premium smart electric SUVs, including 1,726 ES8s, 5,064 ES6s and 3,032 EC6s, and 163 ET7s.

Last week, NIO invited 40 journalists and influencers from the upcoming european markets to visit NIO House in Oslo (Norway) and test its services. German newspaper Der Spiegel was among the invited media to visit NIO Headquarters in Oslo, the first european country the Chinese electric vehicle maker entered. The German media tested NIO’s Battery Swapping facilities with ES8 Model (the only one available in Europe so far) changing its battery for one fully charged in less than four minutes. The weekly news magazine compared it to Tesla’s Superchargers that are next to NIO’s Station.
