The first batch of the NIO ET7, an electric sedan, is already on its way to Europe. It is expected to launch in the German market in the fourth quarter of this year, and subsequently in Denmark, Sweden, and the Netherlands.
NIO’s entry into the European market began in September 2021 with the launch of the ES8 in the Norwegian market. Up to now, Nio has only produced SUVs and is well known for its battery swapping. The brand launched in Norway last year, and at the 2021 NIO Day, it announced plans to be on sale in 25 markets by the end of 2025.
Previously, a number of camouflaged NIO ET7 test vehicles were already spotted in Munich and Hanover, Germany.
