Audi sues Nio over naming designations

Audi has filed a lawsuit with a Munich court against the Chinese electric car manufacturer Nio for infringement of trademark rights, as reported by the German trade publication Handelsblatt with reference to company circles. The reason is that Audi considers the model designations of the Nio ES6 and ES8 to be too similar to its own S6 and S8.

“Like many successful companies, Audi is always keen to protect its trademark rights comprehensively,” a company spokesperson confirmed the proceedings. The opposing party had chosen model names for the European market “which we believe infringe Audi trademarks”. As the legal clarification of the matter is still pending, Audi did not comment any further on the matter.
