"We are proud to see that NIO has performed nearly 31 million power swap operations for users or nearly 60,000 operations per day on average, which means that every 1.4 seconds, a car departs from a Power Swap Station with its battery fully charged.", says Dr. Fei Shen, Senior Vice President of NIO Power. "NIO will keep building Power Swap Stations to make recharging beyond refueling. With our rechargeable, swappable, and upgradable power system, we support users to travel in smart EVs without worrying about the distances to their destinations."
