Nio stock overview
Despite the decline in Nio’s stock price in 2022, mainly owing to factors beyond the company’s control, the firm is still among the most formidable Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) competitors. The zero-Covid policy in China has led to the shutdown of factories and disruptions in the supply chain in 2022.
However, with China’s economy slowly reopening, demand may increase just as it was beginning to diminish. Sales of vehicles at the firm are up 32% year-over-year and over 25% in Q3.
In Q4, investors might anticipate a quickening of the expansion. The company expects to deliver 43,000 to 48,000 automobiles between now and the end of December, representing growth of between 71.8% and 91.7% year-over-year and revenue of between $2.4 billion and $2.7 billion.
