NIO has ambitious growth plans in both China and Europe. To carry them forward, the automaker announced that it has entered into a collaboration agreement with Shell . According to what was communicated, the two companies will work together to create both charging points and stations for the battery swap . Infrastructure that will be built both in China and in Europe.
Pi & ugrave; specifically, NIO and Shell plan to install 100 battery exchange stations in China by 2025 . In Europe, however, from 2022 the first stations for the battery swap will begin to be built. In parallel, the two companies & agrave; will evaluate further possibilities; collaboration in battery management, charging solutions (including domestic), fleet management and other areas.
The news is; definitely very interesting. For Shell comes the opportunity to increase its presence in China, taking advantage of NIO's infrastructure, especially that linked to the exchange of batteries. For the Chinese manufacturer, however, the agreement is; decidedly important in Europe given its expansion plans in the Old Continent. Thanks to a partner like Shell you will be able to & agrave; accelerate the spread of its battery swap system.
For example, it will be able to; go to build these infrastructures for the exchange of batteries within Shell service stations throughout Europe. In addition, the extensive charging network operated by Shell in Europe will be; accessible to the electrical systems of the Chinese manufacturer. In short, an agreement that on paper could potentially lead to really interesting results.
All that remains is to wait for the results of this collaboration. Please note that NIO already has; debuted in Europe, entering the Norwegian market. Next year will come; also in Germany but the goal is; to enter other European countries as well.
