Analyst Rating

On January 12, Macquarie analyst Erica Chen initiated coverage on NIO with a Buy rating and a price target of $37.70 (upside potential of 53.8% from current level).

Chen is of the opinion that NIO’s annual revenue will likely grow 52% through 2024. He describes the company as the earliest electric vehicle start-up in the market with a focus on the affordable luxury auto segment and customer service. Also, the analyst believes that NIO is well positioned with its battery swap business model, as battery swapping is supported by the Chinese government.
