As Nio House was opened, Nio executive Johan Emanuelsson thanked everyone involved in the project, including the architect company SNL who took care of the interior.

Another Nio executive, Bob Valk, Head of Real Estate, hinted that more openings are coming soon. Nio previously announced it plans another Nio House in Frankfurt, Dusseldorf, and Hamburg.

“More openings soon.” Could it be Nio House Frankfurt or Dusseldorf?

“Coming here and spending time here is the goal. The focus should be on the community meetings,” said Ralph Kranz, general manager of Nio Germany. “Pass by and be inspired by a new experience,” adds Kranz to his invitation.

Berlin Nio House is located at Zoologischer Garten station (Charlottenburg district), Kurfürstendamm 11, and its interior is inspired by ‘the typical Berlin neighborhoods that give their residents a sense of belonging and home.’

Last week on December 8, Nio opened its first Nio Space (smaller Nio House) in Sweden, Westfield Taby Centrum, Stockholm. Nio already operates 2 Nio Spaces in Norway (Bergen, Trondheim) and a total of 9 swap stations in Europe, with the goal of 120 PSS in Europe in 2023.

Nio follows its ’25 countries by 2025 plan’ as they entered the first EU countries in October – Germany, Denmark, Sweden, and the Netherlands. The next target of Nio’s expansion is Austria, Belgium, France, Hungary, Italy, Spain, and Switzerland. William Li personally confirmed that Nio aims for the US market in 2025, although it will be difficult. Nio already has US headquarters in San Jose, California, and recently signed a ten years lease there.
