On August 20, NIO Automobile launched battery rental services, or BaaS, which could save buyers 70,000 yuan immediately while purchasing a NIO automobile.
According to the plan of BaaS, buyers do not need to purchase batteries for NIO vehicles, where the 70,000 yuan are reduced from. Instead, they can choose different battery rental packages of various capacities according to actual needs, and then pay monthly for the service.
Users who choose BaaS instead of purchasing a battery can enjoy NIO's services of changing and upgrading batteries, as well as enjoy the national subsidies and the policy support of tax exemption for purchasing new energy vehicles.
If you choose BaaS, you will only need to pay 380,000 yuan, 273,600 yuan, and 280,000 yuan respectively for the NIO ES8, ES6 and EC6.
According to NIO, the BaaS service is comprehensive, covering services of car and electricity separation, battery rental, recharging, changing and upgrading batterie.
The company that is responsible for this service is founded on August 18, with a registered capital of 800 million yuan, which comes from NIO (Anhui) Holding, Catlbattery, Guotai Junan Securities and Hubei Science and Technology Investment Group.
