What Happened: Nio House is the electric automaker’s experience center that also doubles up as a point of sales. The ramp-up comes ahead of Nio’s Norway debut later this year where it plans to build its own sales and service networks.
The first Nio House outside China will officially open in Oslo during the third quarter followed by four more in Bergen, Stavanger, Trondheim, and Kristansand in early 2022.
The concept houses a showroom and also has large open spaces to display the Nio portfolio’s capabilities and a peek into the premium lifestyle ecosystem.
