NIO: That’s what the Chinese manufacturer’s e-cars cost in Germany

With NIO, a Chinese electric car manufacturer is making its debut on the German market. The manufacturer announced in advance what its cars cost per subscription or leasing. Now the purchase option for all models is also starting. In this country you start with a portfolio of three models: the NIO ET5, ET7 and the EL7. The delivery of the first vehicles from the purchase option should already be on the roads at the beginning of 2023.

The purchase option for NIO’s electric vehicles is in addition to the previously mentioned subscription models. With that there are cars with prices between 1,000 and 1,500 euros per month, depending on the subscription model and vehicle configuration. The mid-size sedan offers entry with the ET5. Here 49,900 euros are due in advance. Above that is the ET7, the manufacturer’s flagship sedan. For those, you have to dig much deeper into your pocket at 69,900 euros. It gets even more expensive with the SUV, the NIO EL7. It costs from 73,900 euros. It should be noted that the prices mentioned do not include the battery. You don’t buy them at NIO. The prices also refer to the basic versions. Additional configurations or the environmental bonus are not taken into account.

The price for the battery comes on top of that. There is a choice between two options. On the one hand there is the “Battery as a Service (BaaS)” model. Here you can rent the 75 kWh battery for a monthly fee of 169 euros. You also have access to Power Swap Stations (PSS). Here they offer a fully automatic battery exchange within 5 minutes, the journey can then continue directly. The argument of fear of range or the “effort” when charging with electricity is hereby dispelled. More than 1,100 power swap stations are currently in operation worldwide. You have to see how quickly they establish themselves in this country. The larger battery with 100 kWh can be rented for 289 euros per month.

If you decide to buy the battery. Then the battery with 75 kWh will add up to 12,000 euros. Those with 100 kWh cost 21,000 euros. With a view to the prices of the home storage system, it is quite fair, but it is certainly already priced into the vehicle price. If you decide to make a purchase, the battery becomes your property. The power swap stations are no longer used.

The electric vehicles can be purchased either via the NIO website or via an app. Service appointments can also be booked here. Financing will also be possible later.
