Nio is targeting owners of its EVs with the launch of this new smartphone. It’s designed to specifically work with the company’s vehicles. Among its abilities are acting as a key fob, checking EV information, controlling functions like self-parking and more.
Nio intends to sell this new smartphone for $890 through its online store. However, the company notes that initial supplies may be limited due to demand. It’s also worth noting that the devices run on Android.
William Li, founder and CEO of Nio, said the following to Bloomberg about the device:
“We want our phone to connect seamlessly with the car, and bring a better user experience to our car owners.”
Nio selling a smartphone to pair to its vehicles seems like a lofty pursuit. It will likely only appeal to the most diehard fans of the EV company. Instead, a better option may have been a standalone app available on all devices.
