Nio opens second battery swapping station in Norway

The Chinese electric car manufacturer Nio has opened its second battery-swapping station outside China. Like the first, the battery-swapping station is located in Vestby, Norway. But the first stations are soon to be built in Bergen.

Vestby is located on the important E6 motorway that leads south from the Norwegian capital. The new station will act as a link between Oslo and Gothenburg. As Vestby is located about 40 kilometres from Oslo city centre, many people from the region also commute to work in the capital. Nio opened its first battery exchange station outside China in Oslo in January.

Nio already has 900+ battery-swapping stations in China. In April 2021, Nio presented the second generation of its exchange stations, which can change up to 312 batteries per day. Nio is not expecting its customers to rely on battery-swapping stations alone, of course, and forged a deal with Plugsurfing to offer its customers in Europe access to the European charging network in May this year.

While initially announcing four battery swapping stations in the greater Oslo area (which still includes Vestby), Nio is now announcing expansion beyond the capital region. Nio also plans to build two new battery-swapping stations in Bergen on Norway’s west coast. Bergen is also planned to be the second European Nio House after Oslo.

Just last month, Nio revealed plans to open a factory in Hungary in September and a 500 kW charger. Nio aims to enter markets in Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, and Denmark with its vehicles and services this year.,
