Expected delivery times for all versions of ES8, ES6, EC6 are 2-4 weeks after locking in orders, down from 3-5 weeks previously.
Expected delivery times for most of NIO's models in China have become shorter, after seeing a similar situation for all models except the ET5 10 days ago.
NIO currently sells six models in China, including three models based on the NT 1.0 platform -- ES8, ES6 and EC6 -- and three models based on the NT 2.0 platform -- ES7, ET7 and ET5.
The expected delivery times for all versions of the ES8, ES6, and EC6 are 2-4 weeks after locking in orders, down from the previous 3-5 weeks, according to the latest information from the NIO App monitored by CnEVPost.

The latest expected delivery times for both versions of ES7 are 11-13 weeks after locking the order, down from 12-14 weeks previously.
The latest expected delivery dates for both versions of the ET7 are 6-8 weeks after locking in the order, the same as before.

But car blogger @吴颖碎碎念, who has 940,000 followers on Weibo, said on October 29 that production of the ET7 has accelerated and that consumers who order now will get delivery in about 4-6 weeks.
NIO still doesn't show a wait time for the ET5, and CnEVPost reported earlier today that the sedan's delivery is being delayed due to Covid.
The company's models last saw a change in wait times on October 21, when all models except the ET5 saw expected delivery times shortened, with the ET7's expected delivery time almost halved from the previous one.
Faster deliveries near the end of the year are expected to allow more consumers to take advantage of state purchase subsidies when buying NIO models.
China currently offers state purchase subsidies for NEVs, but they have to be priced below RMB 300,000 unless they are battery swap-enabled models like NIO vehicles. The policy will expire at the end of the year.
NIO is expected to announce October delivery figures on November 1. It delivered 10,878 vehicles in September, up 2.35 percent from 10,628 in the same month last year and up 1.88 percent from 10,677 in August.
That delivery volume included 7,729 SUVs, including 1,895 ES7s, and 3,149 sedans, including 2,928 ET7s and 221 ET5s.
