Mr. Qin confirmed the timeline while attending the opening ceremony in Wuhan for the company's 27th NIO House in China.
The Shanghai-based EV manufacturer is famous for its thoughtful services. Under the slogan “a space for NIO's users and friends, a joyful lifestyle beyond the car”, the startup opens NIO Houses across China in cities' prime lots. More than a room to display the company's products, a typical NIO House is simultaneously a coffee shop open only for its users, a day care center, a library, a meeting room, and places for other social activities. NIO thinks NIO House can help it build a closer relationship with its customers.
On May 6, NIO formally announced its market entry into Norway, signaling the beginning of its overseas onslaught. The company revealed then the first Norway-based NIO House would open in the third quarter of 2021 in Oslo. After that, four NIO Spaces were set to be launched in Bergen, Stavanger, Trondheim, and Kristansand next year.
NIO's flagship SUV, the ES8, is the first model exported to Norway. The first batch of ES8s was shipped from Shanghai Waigaoqiao Port on July 20, and is expected for preorder and delivery this month.
The ET7, the company's flagship sedan that has yet to begin deliveries in China, will be exported to Norway in 2022.
