Nio reports a 135% increase in monthly deliveries

Nick Lai expects $NIO to benefit from China’s policy to lift auto demand as well. 

The EV company based out of Shanghai will increase its monthly unit sales from 15,000 in the second quarter to about 23,000 in Q4, he added. 

His bullish call on Nio stock arrives shortly after the New York listed firm said it delivered 15,620 vehicles in April – up a whopping 135% versus a year ago. 

The electric vehicles firm is expected to report its quarterly earnings in mid-June. Consensus is for it to lose 31 cents a share versus 42 cents per share last year. Note that William Li – the chief executive of Nio Inc was recently named “EV person of the year” as Invezz reported here.
