The NIO ES7 was launched on June 15, the company's second model based on the NT 2.0 platform, and the first SUV on the second-generation platform.

The model is NIO's first with an electric tow hook, and deliveries with the unit will begin as early as September.

The NIO ES7's standard range version with a 75-kWh battery pack is priced at 468,000 yuan ($69,870) before subsidies. Customers who purchase it using BaaS, a battery rental service, will pay RMB 398,000, with a monthly battery rental fee of RMB 980.

The NIO ES7 with the 100-kWh long-range battery pack is priced at RMB 526,000 before subsidies. It is priced at RMB 398,000 in BaaS mode, with a monthly battery rental cost of RMB 1,680.

In addition to these two versions, NIO also offers a premiere version with a pre-subsidy price of RMB 548,000. It is priced at RMB 420,000 in BaaS mode, with a monthly battery rental cost of RMB 1,680.

Under China's current subsidy policy for the new energy vehicle (NEV) industry, vehicles priced above RMB 300,000 are excluded unless they support battery swap, so NIO vehicles will still be eligible for purchase subsidies this year. By next year, China's purchase subsidies for NEVs will be completely eliminated.

For individuals who order an ES7 now and have it delivered within the year, they will receive a subsidy of RMB 11,340 for the NIO ES7 with the 75-kWh battery pack if they choose 20-inch wheels, and RMB 12,600 for the 100-kWh battery pack version.

If they choose the 21-inch wheels, the subsidies are RMB 9,072 and RMB 10,080 respectively.

NIO's NAD (NIO Autonomous Driving) feature is subscription-based and users will have to pay RMB 680 per month to get the full feature.

In addition to the ES7, NIO will also start delivering the ET5 sedan, the third model of its NT 2.0 platform, on September 30.
