NIO announced today that it has opened an energy supply line in the northern part of Jiangxi province under the Power Up Plan, the second to be opened under the plan this year.

The route can connect Nanchang, Jiujiang, Jingdezhen and Poyang, with a total length of about 600 km, and NIO has set up 8 battery swap stations, 7 supercharging stations and 3 destination charging stations along the route.

The route has a large number of lakes and mountains with many tourist destinations.

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 the 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.

On January 14, NIO announced the opening of the western part of Zhejiang province in eastern China under the Power Up Plan, connecting the well-known West Lake as well as Qiandao Lake. This is the first one under the plan this year.

To date, NIO has opened a cumulative total of 19 power-up lines under the plan, according to the company.

According to data monitored by CnEVPost, NIO added two new battery swap stations in China today, bringing the total to 805.

The company also added three new supercharging stations, bringing the total to 647, offering 3,636 charging piles. It also has 647 destination charging stations, offering 3,554 charging piles, and access to more than 460,000 third-party charging piles.
