Nine with six battery exchange stations – Norwegian Electric Vehicle Association
Well, Nio has opened its first battery exchange station in Sweden. It’s great for Nio owners who want to get to Denmark quickly.
Nio is the only car brand that offers full battery replacement as a real supplement to charging the car.
The advantages are many. First, you don’t have to spend 20 minutes or more to charge the battery, but you don’t have to spend more than five minutes. In addition, you can enjoy always having the latest and best batteries in your car.
Buy or rent?
Battery as a service (Baas), as Nio calls it, is also noticeable in your wallet when you buy a new car.
You get the car around DKK 100,000 cheaper by buying it with a battery subscription rather than buying the car with a battery.
Nio currently operates with battery sizes.
One of 75 kWt and one of 100. A larger, probably solid, 150 kWt will come later. And all batteries fit in all cars.
Today, only the large SUV ES8 and the recently arrived ET7 are sold. But soon the slightly smaller models EL7 and ET5 will arrive.
Until recently, the only battery exchange station in Europe was located rather idyllically in Lier, behind a Shell station, along with a number of Tesla chargers, some Mer chargers and Burger King.
Well, Nio owners can also exchange batteries in both Vestby and Lillehammer.
In addition, they have ambitions to open additional stations before the end of the year. One at Kløfta and the other in Ranheim outside Trondheim.
In progress in Sweden
But now things are also happening in Sweden.
Nio opened a battery exchange station along the E6 at the northernmost exit to Varberg last week.
The station is four hours, or 360 kilometers, from Oslo.
Since the whole stretch is high-speed motorway, the power disappears faster, especially if you add a little bonus to the cruise control.
Then you can swing by there and change your battery, on your way to Denmark or further down Europe.
But it goes so fast that you don’t have time to run by either McDonald’s or Burger King, which are located in the same place, to grab a bite to eat.
The Swedes must complete a station during the year. Then they will wait and see where the future customers want to have them located.
Not enough of that. Soon you can look at the car brand in Sweden in a call Nine House also, i.e. Nio’s hardly so sophisticated showrooms.
Nio opened its first European Nio House in Oslo a year ago, in the middle of Karl Johan, just a quarter of a stone’s throw from the Storting.
Now Nio is opening a similar room in Täby, just outside Stockholm, in December.
During the first quarter of next year, Nio House will also open in Gothenburg.
