Last week, Deutsche Bank analyst Edison Yu was among the guests at the China EV Ride & Drive event held last week in Oslo (Norway) where he had the opportunity to test drive many Chinese EV models and to participate in a virtual roundtable with NIO‘s CFO Steven Feng.

In his most recent customer note, Yu said that the company will enter all four markets scheduled for the coming months with the ET7 sedan, something that had only been confirmed for Germany – and the Dutch Market through a later deleted tweet.

“Later this year, NIO will officially enter 4 more markets including Germany, Holland, Denmark, and Sweden with its flagship ET7 sedan, accompanied by battery swap stations and greater local hiring,” the analyst said.

Last week, the company posted two job vacancies on LinkedIn for its Purchasing team in Hungary namely a Senior Buyer and an Indirect Spend Buyer. Both of them will have the responsibility of driving “procurement activities primarily in areas of plant related services as well as production material”.

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, and Portugal. During the last NIO day — held in December 2021 — the EV maker confirmed its plan to expand its services to 25 markets by 2025.
