Nio officially opened its first European Battery Swap Station, located in Norway – the first European Country for the Chinese EV maker. Last September, with the opening of the NIO House Oslo, Nio started selling its products in Europe and plans to enter another four markets this year: Germany, The Netherlands, Denmark and Sweden.
As announced two days ago by eletric-vehicles.com, Omexom – the company that designed, supplied the electrical infrastructure and set up the battery replacement station – said on its official Instagram account that have concluded NIO’s first Battery Swap Station in Europe.
According to the same source, BaaS users can use the 200kWh chargers and swap their vehicles battery twice a month for free.
According to a user from Weibo – the Chinese Social Network – the station is equipped with 13 100kWh batteries. In addition to free benefits, users will pay 2 Norwegian kroner per KWh of electricity and a 100 Norwegian kroner as a Service fee.
By the end of 2022, Nio will have Stations in five different Norwegian cities, with a total of 20 for the Norwegian customers.
Globally, the company has almost 800 Battery Swap stations being expected to reach it this week. The goal is to reach 1,300 Stations by the year end.
NIO closed 2021 with 777 Stations – being 11% above the update goal established last July of 700. The annual objective was reached three weeks before the year-end.
