NIO’s preparations for geographical expansion are progressing in Europe, where soon the first battery swap stations will be deployed in several new countries.
The NIO Power Europe Plant in Hungary already started operations and recently the first locally produced battery swap station rolled off the production line.
The modular station has been sent for installation in Germany (one of the first new markets), but before the end of this yea,r we will see battery swap stations also in the Netherlands, Sweden and Denmark. Norway already has a few of them (supplied from China).
The infrastructure rollout is related to the upcoming launch of the NIO ET7, which is the company’s flagship premium sedan.
Here is a short demonstration of NIO’s second-generation Power Swap Station 2.0, introduced in April 2021, in Hungary:

According to the press release, NIO intends to further increase its investments in Hungary and build an operation center to implement our strategies in the European markets.
“NIO Power Europe Plant has a total area of approximately 10,000 square meters. As NIO’s first factory overseas, it serves as the center of manufacturing, service and R&D for NIO’s power products and services in Europe. With the factory put into operation, NIO will further improve its power network and service efficiency, as well as user experience in Europe.”
