Chinese carmaker Nio still “debating” 2025 entry in North America -executive

(Reuters) – Chinese automaker Nio is still “debating” a 2025 entry in North America, a top executive said on Thursday.

Speaking at Reuters Events Automotive USA 2023 conference, Ganesh Iyer, chief executive officer of Nio USA, said the company is considering “any kind of partnerships” in North America.

Nio also needs to build infrastructure before bringing electric vehicles to North America, he said.

Nio sees an “immersive user experience” as a differentiator for the brand, Iyer said.
