Can Nio Become The Tesla Of China?

8 957 Zhliadnutia 928 tis.

Nio may not be a recognizable name in the US, but it is becoming a leading player in China's EV market. Despite a brush with death at the start of 2020, it has managed to turn things around and become one of the world's most valuable automakers. Does Nio have what it takes to stay on top?

    It a rhetorical question, when it involve China. It like asking is "Huawei the Apple of China?" We all know by now how much China's willingness not to allow Huawei to fail when they invest so much into it.

    Nio will always be called "made in china" and everyone knows what that comment means everytime it's uttered. China has never shed its image as "communist", "thief", "no human rights", "no transparency", "spying", " dictatorship", "power hungry", "hostile" and the list goes on and on and on. China is the only place in the world where billionaires simply disappear, just because they spoke out against the govt or that despot xi jinping. Nio will never ever come even close to comparing with tesla, in the same way as vivo, xiaomi, huawei will never ever compare with apple. Ever. Not unless china or xi or whoever comes into power become the chinese gorbachev and starts radically reforming the govt, its policies and its tattered image in the eyes of the world.

    They already have beaten Tesla, they’re backed by China who makes the batteries these electric cars need. The moment Tesla gets in the lead China will pull them back.

    1. TheGiantBunnysaid
      Pred 2 dňami

      Tesla has the brand recognition that Nio hasn't shown yet; look at consumer spending in the luxury sectors. While investors may be immune to such bias, I think people should caution just how powerful brand power can be. Don't get me wrong, I think they will definitely have tremendous growth for the simple reason you have laid out. They will definitely eat into that market for EVs but I'm not sure if Chinese regulations will actually pull Tesla back.

    Don't go for NIO it's a Trap. Think, the company Rivian is more likely to be one of the best electric cars. it took Rivian years to get their. Then comes NIO overnight and that is the company to buy, it don't make sense. If you buy, your feeding in to the news media and China propaganda promoting a fake ccp narrative. Just look at what's going on, China government is Criticizing a company like tesla 🤔 "now, how convenient" that's been in Existence for more then 10 years, and NIO is going to be better. 😕 It's your prerogative. I urge you to investigate.

    I’m delighted to watch this video, thanks The greatest challenges investors and newbie traders face can range from controlling their emotions. Most newbies investors often undermine and neglect the importance of strategy and signals. Technical analysis overly predicts the movement of asset prices regardless of what is happening in the wider or broader market. Essentially, the process involves studying the paths of a particular asset movement in the past so as to establish a sustainable pattern that can be used to predict future movements. I would encourage investors to trade as I have been doing with Anna Nazarova since last year, increasing my portfolio daily. with her trading strategy/signals which have proven to be so accurate and well analyzed. I have been able to grow my portfolio to 7 figures. Anna Nazarova makes you learn the market’s secret while earning massively. You can get to Anna on Teleqram @ annanazarovatrade for a profitable trading system

    NIO doesn't use the same business model as Tesla. It is going to be quite a while before NIO expands into the U.S. They are expected to tackle Europe one country at a time first. They are moving slowly and have a long way to go due to their expensive business model based on customer service and quality of life, not to mention the pandemic which has effected everyone. The biggest thing they have in common with Tesla is that both companies make EVs exclusively. The companies are heading in different directions.

    Don't pump this stock. NIO can't make it without lots of help from Chinese govt. They are not the next Tesla. Only Tesla competes with Tesla. This ridiculous NIO business models adds a number of unneeded steps and Is less convenient than a gas station. Can't last. You won't be changing your own battery for sure. NIO will also need many extra batteries and locations everywhere to store and charge them, plus provide the battery changing service. Nio must get expensive extra batteries so their customers can rent them instead of paying upfront like everyone else when the industry is leaving battery packs.Then NIO will be stuck with or recycling the old 260 mpc batteries in a few years as the industry switches to cheaper, longer range batteries. People won't need to pay $100+ a month for 6 swaps if the competition offers a charging convenient system for apartment dwellers that takes 20 minutes. No charging station is as convenient or cheap as charging at home.
