As China’s economy begins to open back up following the most recent round of COVID-induced lockdowns, Beijing is contemplating helping both consumers and domestic companies. Earlier this year, the subsidies for buying domestically made electric vehicles was reduced, with 2022 being the final year they were available. The government now seems to be considering extending the program past 2022, as well as delaying a proposed purchase tax for new EVs that is set to come into effect in 2023.

In Nio Europe news, drivers will now have access to Europe’s Plugsurfing charging network. Plugsurfing has over 300,000 chargers across the continent, and the charging interface will be integrated directly into the Nio key and dashboard.  These charge ports are paid charging stations, so Nio will be able to pay directly from inside the vehicle, rather than needing to download a third party application.
