Re: NextEV Nio

What happens when you don't have the coveted license, Case 1 (Lawrence please note):

Yes, and it's interesting that NIO has chosen two, not one, SOE partners to help it clear the hurdles of gaining approval.
Perhaps we can expect to see more of the same collaboration, as investor enthusiasm varies directly with product output of the start-ups.
LeEco's choice of a foreign partner, Aston Martin, was perhaps misguided.

JAC Nio ES8

Launched in Beijing. Two versions on offer. Due to an all-aluminium body, extensive driver-assist features, and a well-appointed interior the ES8 is a tad expensive, but subsidies will shave around a sixth of the price. A rental scheme on the battery pack will be offered as well. Later, the company plans to deploy mobile vans to charge vehicle batteries on-the-fly if requested.

Power output is 240+240 kW; torque 420+420 Nm due to a dual-motor setup. NEDC range is given as 355 km.

re: Swappable (rentable) battery packs.....
So NIO joins the swap club, along side of Zotye, Lifan, Zap Jonway (Skio), and Chehejia CHJ.
Will this trend grow, I wonder?

The next product after the upcoming ES6 will be a vehicle called ET7.

The ET7, on which development work is ongoing, was mentioned on the Linkedin page of an engineer working for Tata Manufacturing Technology Consulting (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., the local arm of Singapore-based Tata Technologies that has been working with Nio since 2015 with respect to product development (including the ES8), PLM (product lifecycle management), body structural engineering, stamping and closures (doors, tailgates, etc.).

NIO, Changan to hold 45% stake in their JV sited in Nanjing


Shanghai (Gasgoo)- Changan NIO New Energy Vehicle Technology Co., Ltd., a joint venture co-built by Changan Automobile and NIO, rolled into Jiangning Development Zone, Nanjing on Aug. 17. It is said that the new JV plans to have an investment of RMB 5 billion and will start construction within this year. The new JV is expected to research and develop three new models and the first one will be put into production in 2020.

The new company will name William Li, founder of NIO, as chairman, Li Wei, executive vice president of Changan Automobile, as vice chairman. The JV's CEO will be Yang Fang, who is a veteran in auto industry in such areas as sales, market, R&D and strategy.

Changan and NIO will take a 45% stake in the JV respectively. The rest 10% stake will be held by senior executives and also will be used to attract talents.

In April, 2017, Changan Automobile and NIO signed a strategic cooperation agreement to cooperate in R&D, production, sales and service in intelligent new energy vehicle (NEV) field.

Apart from the cooperation with Changan, NIO also teamed up with GAC Group to set up GAC NIO New Energy Automotive Co., Ltd., which will be dedicated to the R&D, sales and services of intelligent connected NEVs. GAC and NIO respectively hold 45% and 55% stake of their JV.

William Li recently disclosed that the JVs co-developed by GAC and Changan will be operated with the same method as that of a startup. However, both GAC NIO and Changan NIO will cooperate in designing and development, sales, aftersales of products, as well as joint procurement of auto parts, but not will involve in vehicle manufacturing area.
