The Chinese do not stop at anything. NIO is on track to become one of the major players in the global electric car market. Although many could brand it as a startup, the reality is that the Chinese company has already conquered its piece of the market. Now it is the turn of other markets, such as Europe and America, where the strategy to follow seems even more aggressive than that of the old continent. NIO plans to build a factory on American soil and is already recruiting the necessary people.
NIO has been operating for the past four years. We have seen them go from a simple and promising Chinese manufacturer to an electric force of significant proportions in less than five years. A few months ago, NIO celebrated the production of its 200,000th car, an important milestone for the company but a grain of sand in the immense desert that is the world car market. Despite this discreet role, the figure has been achieved in record time, encouraging the company's managers to continue advancing rapidly.
In May 2021, NIO officially arrived in Europe. Its access route has been, as for many others, the Nordic countries. However, the Chinese have gradually infiltrated the entire continent from the north. Although the presence and sales are still residual, the company's name is already beginning to circulate through the ears of potential buyers who see the brand as an alternative to the expensive products of European manufacturers. A similar case is that of MG, which, in a short time, has gone from being practically unknown to leading the sales of plug-in hybrid vehicles in our country.
NIO plans contemplate a landing in 25 different countries around the world. That includes America's promised land. Some time ago, we learned that the company was looking for its first workers in the local territory. After that, stalls began to hint at the more than possible landing. NIO has also been looking for land to install its offices during this contracting phase. Now we have also been able to learn that the presence in the country can be extended further with the construction of a factory, the first outside of China.
New job offers point directly to hiring the personnel necessary to plan the construction of a large electric car factory in the San José, California area, near the company's headquarters. Positions as experts in infrastructure planning betray official intentions. The first rumors suggest that NIO would follow a strategy of assembling complete kits from China. The large pieces would arrive by ship and would be assembled in the USA.
The NIO electric car start-up, which is already successful in China, wants to gain a foothold in Europe in the future. Before the further expansion planned for 2022, the company presented its fifth model at the end of the current year. … Continue reading
