In an end-of-year sales push, Nio also announced various perks for customers who buy their Nio in December today, such as 30 free battery swaps and 5000 yuan (705 USD) for accessories. The benefit package also includes one year of free NOP+ (Navigate on Pilot) autonomous driving system subscription. Customers only need to pay the non-refundable deposit before December 31.

In November, Nio added 138 Power Swap Stations (PSS), bringing the total number to 2217 globally: 2,188 in China and 29 in Europe. Nio aims to have 2,300 swap stations in China by the end of 2023. The previous goal was 1,800, but Nio reiterated it to 2,300 later. In Europe, the original goal was to have 120 swap stations in 2023. After that, it was changed to 80; the latest target is 30. This week, Nio also reached 33 million battery swaps provided in China.

Nio added 16 new showrooms and has 142 Nio Houses and 320 Nio spaces in China and Europe in November. Nio also operates 20,383 charging poles in China, making the Hefei-based automaker one of the largest supercharging providers in the country.

In the latest move to show its technological muscles, Nio shared a video of their car driving autonomously and performing a self-battery swap. The feature is called Power Swap on Pilot (PSP) and is available in Banyan 2.0.8 cockpit system and higher in China. When turned on, Nio will autonomously find a battery swap station and swap battery. It can also wait in a queue if the battery station is occupied. The service is only available on highways-located in PSSs so far.

However, not all battery swap stations support this feature. Nio said there are currently 29 swap stations available for PSP, as its hardware needs to be slightly upgraded.
