Following a line last week, NIO has opened a new charging line under the Power Up Plan.

The company said today that the NIO charging route from Changchun, Jilin to the Changbai mountain is open, including three battery swap stations, eight supercharging stations and nine destination charging stations.

The route is one of the most popular routes for Chinese people on vacation, with the Changbai mountain, located at the border between China and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), one of the most widely known sites for its Heaven Lake.

During the Beijing Auto Show in late September 2020, NIO officially announced the Power Up Plan, which aims to deploy 20kW destination DC charging stations in popular travel, leisure, and business destinations to form a nationwide destination charging network.

Under the plan, NIO's ultimate goal is to deploy more than 30,000 destination DC charging piles in China.

To achieve this goal, NIO will provide a total of RMB 100 million in construction and operation subsidies to all partners who are willing to share resources and waive service fees for NIO customers, averaging RMB 1,000 per charging post per year for three years.

At the end of December 2020, NIO announced the opening of a charging line from Chengdu to Everest, the first charging line to be opened under the Power Up Plan.

Last week, NIO built a network capable of supporting owners to easily replenish their energy on a tourist route in the northern region of Zhejiang Province in eastern China.

To date, NIO has opened at least 10 charging lines under the Power Up Plan this year.
