On Thursday, a video leaked on the internet showed over one hundred units of the NIO ET7 model at the Shanghai Port waiting to be batched to Europe, amid the company’s expansion in the upcoming months.
The model was unveiled on NIO Day 2020, held in January 2021, and will arrive in Norway, Germany, Sweden, The Netherlands, and Denmark before the end of the year.
Norway, which has the highest EV adoption share, was the company’s first European Market having entered there with its SUV NIO ES8.
Recently, NIO CFO Steven Feng confirmed that the EV manufacturer will also enter Sweden, The Netherlands, and Denmark with the sedan NIO ET7 — something that had only been confirmed for the German market, the second European country for the EV maker.

In late January, NIO CEO William Li and Marius Hayle — the Manager of NIO Norway — gathered with 20 NIO users for a discussion where it was revealed that the ET7 Model will arrive in Norway during the last quarter of the year.
On the same day, NIO also announced that the ET5 Model — with a 1,000km range — will be available in Norway (and “several other global markets”) during the Spring of 2023.
Meanwhile, the company is already preparing for the second phase of its European expansion into eight new countries: Austria, Belgium, France, Hungary, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Portugal, and the Czech Republic. During the last NIO day — held in December 2021 — the EV maker confirmed its plan to expand its services to 25 markets by 2025.
