NIO has opened another charging route under its Power Up Plan, the fourth consecutive week for doing so.

The company announced today that it has opened a charging route from Lanzhou to Dunhuang in northwest China, covering a distance of 1,300 kilometers.

NIO has set up 14 energy recharge points along the route, one for an average of 100 kilometers.

This is another new route opened by the company under the Power Up Plan after October 27, November 2 and November 8, and at least the 12th so far this year.

During the Beijing Auto Show in late September 2020, NIO officially announced the Power Up Plan, which aims to deploy 20kW destination DC charging posts 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.

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

Last week, NIO opened a charging route covering the eastern coast of Guangdong, which is a travel route from Dongguan to Chaozhou, with a total length of about 400 km and 12 energy recharge points.
