NIO today shared a short video on its mobile app suggesting it will launch a new model with an electric rear wing at NIO Day 2022 in two days.
NIO (NYSE: NIO) continues to warm up for NIO Day 2022, which is just two days away.
The company today shared a short video on its mobile app suggesting it will launch a new model with an electric rear wing at the event.
"NIO Day 2022, let's welcome a new member of the NIO product family," the company wrote in a post on the NIO App, without providing any more information.
NIO Day 2022 will be held on December 24 at the Hefei Binhu International Convention and Exhibition Center in Hefei, Anhui province, where both of NIO's current plants are located.
The company's presentation at NIO Day 2022 will begin at 19:00 Beijing time on December 24 and run until 21:30.
NIO announced yesterday that it will unveil its third-generation battery swap station at the event. The company did not provide more details, but previous patent documents show that the new battery swap station is expected to be able to store up to 22 battery packs and may be compatible with different sizes of packs.
On December 10, William Li, founder, chairman and CEO of NIO, said the company would launch two models at NIO Day 2022.
On December 12, NIO co-founder and president Qin Lihong said in a media conference that NIO will launch two models at NIO Day 2022, one of which is the ES8 based on the NT 2.0 platform, and the other is a very stylish new model.
Although Qin didn't provide any more hints about that all-new model, it is likely to be the EC7 coupe SUV.
The NIO App stopped showing the wait time for the ES8 last month, and the wait time for the EC6 started not being shown 10 days ago. These moves seem to be making way for the two new models.
Since October, spy photos of the NIO EC7 on road test have been revealed several times, and the model may come with an electric rear wing.
On August 30, a patent filed by NIO related to the electric rear wing came into effect, and its description document says that the device not only makes the vehicle look better, but also reduces wind resistance and energy consumption.
