Interesting, but I imagine they will have large costs associated with expanding to outside chinese markets
Safety being one of them.

In China they have outsourced the manufacturing to another company, this meant they didn't get into the issues that Tesla have got into
They could do something similar in Europe....
ES8 in Norway with Bjorn
thats incredibly impressive
Looks very dated., reminds me of an 80/90s land cruiser. Even the little little robot thing is like the old compass in them. Lots of things to break.
What I find interesting about Nio is their battery swop solution.
Im happy doing charging but the battery swop is a good attempt at addressing the charging issue lots of ICE drivers have with EVs.
Battery swop in 6 mins tackles the following challenging scenarios
1) time poor high mileage drivers.
2) people living in apartments.
3) people who struggle with giving up the 5 min petrol refills.
Surely that's a gamechanger, if the battery range is not sufficient swap for bigger capacity in the future.
