NIO added five battery swap stations on Sunday and five on Monday, bringing the total to 410.
Of the five new battery swap stations added on Sunday, four are located in Shanxi Province in northern China and one in Jiangmen, Guangdong Province in southern China.
The five new battery swap stations added on Monday are all located in Shanghai, complementing the non-city center battery swap layout.
The second-generation battery swap stations can hold up to 13 batteries and provide up to 312 services per day. Cars can park automatically and complete the battery swap in 3-5 minutes.
As of Monday, NIO has 38 battery swap stations, 28 supercharging stations, 12 destination charging stations and access to 27,824 third-party charging piles in Shanghai.
NIO has 410 battery swap stations, 278 supercharging stations, 478 destination charging stations and access to more than 400,000 third-party charging piles in China.
NIO originally planned to have 500 battery swap stations in China by the end of this year, but at the first NIO Power Day event on July 9, the company's co-founder and president Qin Lihong announced that the target had been raised to 700.
On July 9, NIO said that only 29 percent of customers currently have a battery swap station within a 3-kilometer radius, which is unsatisfactory.
By 2025, NIO hopes to have 90 percent of customers within a 3 km radius of a battery swap station.
