First batch of NIO ES8 electric cars have been shipped from Shanghai to Norway
New era for the Chinese electric vehicle (EV) maker as it starts sales in Europe
Earlier this week the first batch of NIO ES8s for user delivery was shipped from Shanghai Waigaoqiao Port to Norway. The northern European country will be the first on the continent to sell the NIO brand of electric cars.
The NIO ES8 is the smart electric sports utility vehicle (SUV) from the Chinese carmaker. Order placement and user delivery of the NIO ES8 is expected to commence in September. This is an exciting time as the brand’s affordable zero-emissions electric car starts its venture into Europe.
Previously, the NIO ES8 received European Whole Vehicle Type Approval (EWVTA) and rolled out of the production line in Hefei Advanced Manufacturing Centre.
The NIO ES8, NIO House, the chargeable, swappable and upgradable NIO Power system, NIO Service and Delivery Center, NIO App and NIO Life will all be available to Norwegian users.
NIO Norway User Advisory Board has been established. It has received applications from more than 650 Norwegian users. The first 200 members have formed the advisory board and collaborated with each other on localising the vehicle and community experience.
