Nio (NYSE:NIO) is holding a launch event for its ES6, a luxury electric SUV, tomorrow, May 24 in Shanghai. However, NIO stock is down about 1.5% this morning.

The ES6 and an ET7 sedan will be linchpins for Nio’s Electric Vehicle (EV) line for the next year. The cars are said to include a new entertainment system and augmented reality glasses.

NIO stock jumped nearly 9% on May 22, ending the day at $8.80 per share, a market cap of nearly $15 billion.

The Nio Enigma

Since its founding in 2014, Nio has been the most enigmatic of China’s Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) competitors but not the most successful.

Nio pioneered fast battery swapping and invested in the leading edge of battery technology. It has sought a foothold in Europe and even invested in nuclear fusion.

What it hasn’t done is sell a lot of cars. After selling over 15,000 cars in December 2022, it delivered just 6,658 in April.

Since 2020, when Nio signed a subsidy deal with a Chinese provincial government, the company has operated as the top end of the state-backed JAC Motors line. JAC, which has a joint venture with Volkswagen (OTCMKTS:VWAGY), makes over 500,000 cars per year.

Nio’s economic freedom has made it the leader in high-end EV design and in EV business models. Speculators are buying Nio based on hopes for big European sales. Time will tell whether those sales materialize.

NIO Stock: What Happens Next?

Nio next reports earnings on June 9. While a loss is expected, analysts will be looking closely at sales figures and export numbers for signs the company is succeeding in opening European markets.
