Recent Developments

Deliveries in October 2020

  • Deliveries of the ES8, ES6 and EC6 were 5,055 vehicles in October 2020, representing a strong 100.1% year-over-year growth. As of October 31, 2020, cumulative deliveries of the ES8, ES6 and EC6 reached 63,343 vehicles, of which 31,430 were delivered in 2020.

Launch of 100kWh Battery Pack

  • On November 6, 2020, NIO launched the 100kWh battery pack with battery upgrade plans. The 100kWh cell-to-pack battery pack has realized 37% higher energy density than the 70kWh battery. Powered by the 100kWh battery, the NEDC range of NIO EC6 can reach up to 615 kilometers. The outstanding performance of the 100kWh battery is underpinned by technological advancements including thermal propagation prevention design, highly-integrated architecture, all-climate thermal management and bi-directional cloud battery management system.

    If users opt to purchase an ES8, ES6 or EC6 and subscribe for the 100kWh battery pack under the innovative Battery as a Service (the “BaaS”) model, they can purchase the vehicle without the battery pack while paying a monthly subscription fee of RMB1,480. Users of the 70kWh battery pack can choose to either purchase a 100kWh battery pack for permanent upgrades or pay a monthly subscription fee of RMB880 for a flexible upgrade package.

Completion of Registered Follow-on Offering of American Depositary Shares

  • In September 2020, NIO completed the offering of 101,775,000 American depositary shares, each representing one Class A ordinary share of the Company, at a price of US$17.00 per ADS, which included 13,275,000 American depositary shares issued in connection with the underwriters’ full exercise of their overallotment option.

Completion of Increase of Controlling Equity Interests in NIO China

  • In September 2020, NIO completed the increase of its controlling equity interests in NIO China through the partial redemption of certain investor’s equity interests and the subscription for newly increased registered capital. The Company currently holds 86.5% controlling equity interests in NIO Holding Co., Ltd. (formerly named NIO (Anhui) Holding Co., Ltd.) (“NIO Holding”), the legal entity of NIO China.

Completion of Redemption of Equity Interests in XPT from Minority Shareholders

  • In November, NIO, through its wholly owned subsidiary, completed the full redemption of equity interests in XPT (Jiangsu) Automotive Technology Co., Ltd., or XPT, held by each of its minority shareholders. As a result, NIO redeemed a total of 21.09% equity interests in XPT and now indirectly wholly owns XPT. Established in May 2018, XPT mainly designs, develops and manufactures electric motors, battery packs and other smart electric vehicle components.

CEO and CFO Comments

“We achieved a new record-high quarterly deliveries of 12,206 ES8s, ES6s and EC6s in total in the third quarter of 2020, followed by the best-ever monthly deliveries of 5,055 vehicles in October,” said William Bin Li, founder, chairman and chief executive officer of NIO. “In view of the growing market demand for our competitive products, we are motivated to continuously elevate the production capacity to the next level. We expect to deliver 16,500 to 17,000 vehicles in the coming fourth quarter.”

“In the past months, we are pleased to have launched the BaaS and the 100kWh battery pack with proprietary thermal management and significant performance enhancement. Enabled by our unique battery swap technologies, innovative BaaS model and comprehensive power solutions, our users can benefit from lower initial purchase prices of vehicles, flexible battery upgrade options as well as enhanced assurance of battery performance. Additionally, following the release of the NIO OS 2.7.0 via firmware-over-the-air (FOTA) upgrade in October 2020, our users have been able to enjoy the Navigate on Pilot (NoP) feature of NIO Pilot on highways and urban expressways in China. Going forward, we remain committed to deploying more resources into the core technology innovations and delivering the best holistic product and service experiences to our user community in the pursuit of fortifying our long-term competitiveness in the market,” concluded Mr. Li.

“With another quarter of record high deliveries in the third quarter of 2020, plus further improvements in average selling price, material cost and manufacturing efficiency, our vehicle margin increased to 14.5%. Additionally, we achieved positive cash flow from operating activities for the second sequential quarter,” added Steven Wei Feng, NIO’s chief financial officer. “Our order growth momentum continued steadfastly, driven by the expanded brand awareness, growing user base, extended sales network and most importantly, the compelling products and technologies. Meanwhile, our continuous improvement of operational efficiency, cash flow and balance sheet has laid a solid foundation for our future sustainable growth and decisive investments in technologies."

Financial Results for the Third Quarter of 2020

Revenues

  • Total revenues were RMB4,526.0 million (US$666.6 million) in the third quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 146.4% from the third quarter of 2019 and an increase of 21.7% from the second quarter of 2020.

  • Vehicle sales were RMB4,266.8 million (US$628.4 million) in the third quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 146.1% from the third quarter of 2019 and an increase of 22.4% from the second quarter of 2020. The increase in vehicle sales of the third quarter of 2020, compared to the third quarter of 2019 and the second quarter of 2020, was mainly contributed by the increase in sales of the ES6 and ES8.

  • Other sales were RMB259.2 million (US$38.2 million) in the third quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 150.7% from the third quarter of 2019 and an increase of 11.3% from the second quarter of 2020. The increase in other sales of the third quarter of 2020, compared to the third quarter of 2019, was mainly attributed to increased revenues derived from the home chargers installed, service package and energy package subscribed, and accessories sold, which were in line with the increased vehicle sales in the third quarter of 2020.

Cost of Sales and Gross Margin

  • Cost of sales was RMB3,940.1 million (US$580.3 million) in the third quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 91.4% from the third quarter of 2019 and an increase of 15.7% from the second quarter of 2020. The increase in cost of sales, compared to the third quarter of 2019, was mainly driven by the increase of delivery volume of the ES6 and ES8 in the third quarter of 2020.

  • Gross profit was RMB585.8 million (US$86.3 million) in the third quarter of 2020, representing an increase of RMB807.4 million from a gross loss of RMB221.6 million in the third quarter of 2019 and an increase of RMB272.7 million from the second quarter of 2020. The increase of gross profit, compared to the third quarter of 2019, was mainly contributed by increased vehicle sales and increased vehicle margin.

  • Gross margin in the third quarter of 2020 was 12.9%, compared with negative 12.1% in the third quarter of 2019 and 8.4% in the second quarter of 2020. The increase of gross margin, compared to the third quarter of 2019, was mainly driven by the increase of vehicle margin in the third quarter of 2020.

  • Vehicle margin in the third quarter of 2020 was 14.5%, compared with negative 6.8% in the third quarter of 2019 and 9.7% in the second quarter of 2020. The increase of vehicle margin, compared to the third quarter of 2019 and the second quarter of 2020, was mainly driven by the decrease in purchase price of certain materials and lower unit manufacturing cost attributed from increased production volume of the ES6 and ES8 in the third quarter of 2020.

Operating Expenses

  • Research and development expenses were RMB590.8 million (US$87.0 million) in the third quarter of 2020, representing a decrease of 42.3% from the third quarter of 2019 and an increase of 8.4% from the second quarter of 2020. Excluding share-based compensation expenses (non-GAAP), research and development expenses were RMB577.8 million (US$85.1 million) in the third quarter of 2020, representing a decrease of 42.4% from the third quarter of 2019 and an increase of 8.3% from the second quarter of 2020. The decrease in research and development expenses over the third quarter of 2019 was primarily attributed to the higher design and development costs incurred in the third quarter of 2019 for EC6 and all-new ES8 launched in the fourth quarter of 2019, and the Company’s overall cost-saving efforts and the improved operational efficiency in research and development functions since the fourth quarter of 2019. Research and development expenses remained relatively stable compared with the second quarter of 2020, which mainly consisted of costs incurred for recurring projects.

  • Selling, general and administrative expenses were RMB940.3 million (US$138.5 million) in the third quarter of 2020, representing a decrease of 19.2% from the third quarter of 2019 and an increase of 0.4% from the second quarter of 2020. Excluding share-based compensation expenses (non-GAAP), selling, general and administrative expenses were RMB905.5 million (US$133.4 million) in the third quarter of 2020, representing a decrease of 18.9% from the third quarter of 2019 and an increase of 0.1% from the second quarter of 2020. The decrease in selling, general and administrative expenses over the third quarter of 2019 was primarily driven by the Company’s overall cost-saving efforts and the improved operational efficiency in marketing and other supporting functions. Selling, general and administrative expenses remained relatively stable compared with the second quarter of 2020.

Loss from Operations

  • Loss from operations was RMB946.0 million (US$139.3 million) in the third quarter of 2020, representing a decrease of 60.7% from the third quarter of 2019 and a decrease of 18.4% from the second quarter of 2020. Excluding share-based compensation expenses, adjusted loss from operations (non-GAAP) was RMB896.7 million (US$132.1 million) in the third quarter of 2020, representing a decrease of 61.7% from the third quarter of 2019 and a decrease of 19.6% from the second quarter of 2020.

Share-based Compensation Expenses

  • Share-based compensation expenses were RMB49.2 million (US$7.3 million) in the third quarter of 2020, representing a decrease of 30.1% from the third quarter of 2019 and an increase of 8.6% from the second quarter of 2020. The decrease in share-based compensation expenses over the third quarter of 2019 was primarily due to less options granted driven by the decline in the number of employees, and the impact of part of the share-based compensation expenses being recognized by using the accelerated method, under which the expenses decrease gradually over the vesting period. The increase in share-based compensation expenses over the second quarter of 2020 was primarily attributed to the incremental options granted in the third quarter of 2020 with relatively higher grant date fair values due to the increased share price.

Net Loss and Earnings Per Share

  • Net loss was RMB1,047.0 million (US$154.2 million) in the third quarter of 2020, representing a decrease of 58.5% from the third quarter of 2019 and a decrease of 11.0% from the second quarter of 2020. Excluding share-based compensation expenses, adjusted net loss (non-GAAP) was RMB997.8 million (US$147.0 million) in the third quarter of 2020, representing a decrease of 59.3% from the third quarter of 2019 and a decrease of 11.8% from the second quarter of 2020.

  • Net loss attributable to NIO’s ordinary shareholders was RMB1,187.9 million (US$175.0 million) in the third quarter of 2020, representing a decrease of 53.5% from the third quarter of 2019 and a decrease of 1.6% from the second quarter of 2020.

Non-GAAP Disclosure

The Company uses non-GAAP measures, such as adjusted cost of sales (non-GAAP), adjusted research and development expenses (non-GAAP), adjusted selling, general and administrative expenses (non-GAAP), adjusted loss from operations (non-GAAP), adjusted net loss (non-GAAP), adjusted net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders (non-GAAP), adjusted basic and diluted net loss per share (non-GAAP) and adjusted basic and diluted net loss per ADS (non-GAAP), in evaluating its operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes. By excluding the impact of share-based compensation expenses and accretion on redeemable non-controlling interests to redemption value, the Company believes that the non-GAAP financial measures help identify underlying trends in its business and enhance the overall understanding of the Company’s past performance and future prospects. The Company also believes that the non-GAAP financial measures allow for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by the Company’s management in its financial and operational decision-making.

The non-GAAP financial measures are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP methods of accounting and reporting used by other companies. The non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and when assessing the Company’s operating performance, investors should not consider them in isolation, or as a substitute for net loss or other consolidated statements of comprehensive loss data prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The Company encourages investors and others to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

The Company mitigates these limitations by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable U.S. GAAP performance measures, all of which should be considered when evaluating the Company’s performance.

For more information on the non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned “Unaudited Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results” set forth at the end of this press release.
