Founded by Chinese entrepreneur William Li in 2014, Nio has become one of the fastest growing electric car startups in China, and one of several homegrown rivals to Elon Musk’s Tesla.
Last year, it delivered 91,429 vehicles, up 109% from 2020, according to the company. For the first five months of this year, it delivered 37,866 units, up 12% from the same period a year ago.
Tesla was the top seller of pure EVs in China until April, when Covid lockdowns in Shanghai affected its sales and supply chains. China’s BYD (BYDDF), backed by Warren Buffett, overtook Tesla that month.
Nio listed its shares on the New York Stock Exchange in 2018.
Two killed as Nio electric car falls from third floor office in Shanghai
Chinese electric carmaker Nio says that two people were killed when one of its vehicles fell from the third floor of its headquarters in Shanghai.

One member of staff and a person from a partner company died in the crash.

The incident took place on Wednesday at about 17:20 local time, the firm said. The people who died were inside the vehicle as it fell from the building.

Nio says it immediately started an investigation into the incident in co-operation with government officials.

The third storey area from where the car fell has been variously described as a showroom, a testing facility or a car park.

“Our company has collaborated with public security department to launch the investigation and analysis of the cause of the accident. Based on the analysis of the situation at the scene, we can initially confirm that this was an accident (not caused by the vehicle),” the company said in a statement.

“We feel very sad about this accident and would like to express our deepest condolences to our colleague and partner employee who lost their lives. A team has been set up to help the families,” it added.

Nio’s initial statement on Weibo attracted more than 1,000 comments within half an hour, but was then taken down.

The last sentence of the statement “not related to the vehicle itself” triggered many angry responses from social media users.

One comment read “it shows the cold blood of capitalism”, while another said, “the last sentence is so indifferent. They [test drivers] came to test the vehicle, but you say [the accident] has nothing to do with the vehicle?”.

Yet another Weibo user said: “It should be public security bureau to confirm if it’s an accident or not.”

The car maker has since posted a revised version of the statement, which still refers to the crash as an accident but now has “not caused by the vehicle” in brackets apparently to de-emphasise that part of the sentence. All the comments to the new post are now “RIP”.

Nio is at the forefront of China’s homegrown drive to dominate the electric vehicle industry. It has staked a lot on interchangeable batteries in its cars as a way to overcome customer concerns about frequent charging.

The company is a rival to multi-billionaire Elon Musk’s US-based electric car maker Tesla, which has a major manufacturing plant in Shanghai.
