Nio (NYSE: NIO), one of China’s electric vehicle (EV) trailblazers, continues to expand its business across China, possibly setting itself up for international success.
The firm opened its largest service center in China, namely, in Shanghai’s Songjiang district, as reported by CnEVPost on August 18.
The center represents Nio’s 10th in the city, covering a broad area of 12,000 square meters, with 70 service bays and 129 standard parking spaces, offering maintenance, metalwork, painting, vehicle diagnostics, and a car wash. Alongside these, the center will also have a showroom offering test drives and rides.
Furthermore, the firm also recently announced its delivery numbers showing that year-on-year (YoY) deliveries rose by 27%. Additionally, their proposition is rounded out by offering 1,064 battery swap stations in China, with 274 located along highways. Along with 1,825 charging stations in China.
It appears the service center could increase the revenue the firm will bring, which could in turn boost the share price.
