Chinese landscape architecture service provider Shenzhen L&A Design Holding Limited has signed an overall strategic framework agreement with NIO to handle the design and on-site management services for NIO's electric vehicle industrial parks in multiple regions in the future, the Shenzhen-listed company said today.

L&A Design will build on previous concept proposals to enhance the differentiated ambiance of different spaces, the company said.

L&A Design designers will ensure the full process is controlled to make NIO's electric vehicle plant perfect according to people's expectations, it said, without providing further details.

NIO currently has two plants in Hefei, Anhui province, including JAC-NIO advanced manufacturing base, the first plant, and a second plant in NeoPark.

NeoPark is an electric vehicle industrial park jointly promoted by NIO and the Hefei municipal government, which started construction on April 29 last year.

The ET5 is the first model to be produced at NIO's plant in NeoPark, and its first deliveries are expected to begin on September 30.

In late July, NIO said it built a new electric drive system production site at NeoPark with a planned annual capacity of 1.3 million units of electric drive systems.

The production line uses intelligent solutions including 6-axis robots, 3D vision recognition technology, and automated logistics, according to a previous article posted by NIO on its mobile app.

The line has an automation rate of over 80 percent and can produce both permanent magnet electric drive systems as well as induction electric drive systems. The first C sample of NIO ET5's electric drive system rolled off the line at this electric drive system manufacturing base on July 29.
