However, an executive at NIO denied this. The interest as a direct Tesla Model 3 adversary is great.

“Whether public or private, whether ET7 or ET5, NIO has never published numbers on the orders,” said Ma Lin, NIO’s Senior Director of Corporate Communications, in his WeChat status, about the rumors that are rampant around the pre-orders of the ET5.

With the Nio ET5, the Chinese start-up introduces its new electrical middle class sedan, which should step in direct competition to Tesla Model 3. These are your own statement to the previously most compact car of NIO, which connects power with room feel and driving pleasure. Pre-orders are possible now.

In an interview with local media on 19. December gave William Li, founder, chairman and CEO of Nio that the ET5 just presented was the most commonly pre-ordered model of Nio. Li went closer to it, but added that NIO’s annual deliveries in recent years had a 100% growth rate and this pace should be maintained next year.

  1. Why is it that every time a new BEV is presented, you only ever make a reference to Tesla?
    There is talk of the “adversary to the Model 3” or of the new “Tesla hunter” or even “Teslakiller”

    In the category of the ET5 but also lots of vehicles of other manufacturers play a role – you think there only to the Mustang Mach E, or the KIA EV6 or possibly also to a model of the ID series?

    Why are the competitors always seen in competition with the corresponding Tesla in the category to be compared?

    Time will tell – the main thing is electric 😉
  2. Think the Nio looks great and the number of pre-orders is probably an understatement. If it were already in D, I would have at least had an alternative to the Model 3 that I ordered last week.
