, a pioneer in the global premium electric vehicle market, has reached another milestone by producing its 100,000th production vehicle earlier this month.
Exactly 1,046 days on from NIO’s flagship ES8 SUV starting serial production, the 100,000th NIO car – the latest ES8 – rolled off the production line at the JAC-NIO manufacturing centre in Hefei. NIO users of the first-generation ES8, ES6 and EC6, joined staff to celebrate this moment, in line with local government Covid-19 guidelines.
It was only in July 2020 that NIO celebrated the production of its 50,000th premium SUV and it has taken only a futher nine months for the company to double its output.
This achievement was preceded by another record for NIO — in March 2021, the company delivered 7,257 vehicles, setting a new monthly record demonstrating strong 373% year-on-year growth. The deliveries comprised: 1,529 ES8s, the company's six- and seven-seat premium smart electric SUV; 3,152 ES6s, NIO’s five-seat high-performance long-range electric SUV; and 2,576 EC6s, the five-seat smart electric coupé SUV.
Overall, in the first quarter of 2021, NIO increased its deliveries by 423% year-on-year and set a new quarterly record with 20,060 vehicles delivered. By 31 March, cumulative deliveries of the ES8, ES6 and EC6 reached 95,701 vehicles.
