NIO’s official Weibo account announced that the smart electric coupe SUV NIO EC6 will arrive in stores in September, and ‘The Lighten Up Day’ will be staged nationwide.
Chinese EV startup, NIO’s third mass-produced battery-electric vehicle (BEV) model, EC6 COUPE was launched on July 24, 2020. The company had already announced that the model will start delivering from this September with a base price at CNY 368,000 before subsidy. The new model benchmarks Tesla’s Model Y, according to the company’s founder and CEO, Li Bin.
Another positive piece of news for NIO is that the EC6 being delivered in September means that it will be several months earlier than the expected delivery date of Tesla’s Model Y.
