NIO opened at least 15 power replenishment lines under the Power Up Plan last year, and the company is continuing to advance the plan into 2022.
The company today announced the opening of a new line under the Power Up Plan, the first this year and the first since November 28 of last year.
The line is located in the western part of Zhejiang province in eastern China, connecting the well-known West Lake as well as Qiandao Lake, and covers a distance of about 180 kilometers.
NIO has set up four battery swap stations and two destination charging stations to provide 10 destination charging piles on the route.
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.
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.
To date, NIO has opened a cumulative total of 18 power-up lines under the program, according to the company.
