HEFEI, April 26 (Xinhua) -- Chinese electric carmaker NIO's 200,000th vehicle rolled off the production line on Tuesday in Hefei, capital of east China's Anhui Province, according to Qin Lihong, co-founder and president of the company.

NIO manufactured its 100,000th vehicle in April 2021, a milestone event that took the company close to three years to accomplish. It took NIO about a year to complete the production of its second 100,000 smart electric vehicles.

A total of over 900 NIO battery swapping stations and over 7,000 charging piles have been built across China, greatly easing drivers' range anxiety, NIO sources said.

The Chinese car brand has also entered Norway, and will start to provide services in the markets of Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and Denmark this year, said Qin.

Founded in November 2014, NIO is a pioneer in China's premium electric vehicle market, with its global headquarters located in Shanghai and China headquarters in Hefei.
