“China remains a greenfield EV market opportunity as we believe overall EV sales can potentially double in the region over the next few years given the pent-up demand for EV vehicles across all price points,” Wedbush’s Dan Ives said in a note on Monday.

Nio has cumulatively sold 75,641 vehicles since its launch of the ES8, ES6, and EC6 in 2018 and 2019. On January 9, Nio will introduce a new electric sedan model and detail its ongoing developments in autonomous driving at the fourth Nio Day event.
