There’s no denying that NIO has tremendous operational momentum today.
The Covid-19 pandemic negatively impacted the company in the first quarter of 2020. But, ever since then, the EV maker has been absolutely on fire. In April, NIO’s delivery trend reversed course, with volumes rising 181% year-over-year as China’s economy started to rebound from the pandemic and the government ramped up EV support.
That was only the beginning.
NIO rattled off 216% delivery volume growth in May, 179% growth in June, 324% growth in July — so on and so forth, all the way to December, creating a stretch of nine straight months of 100%-plus delivery growth.
Why the huge growth surge?
Outside of the fact that China is aggressively supporting EV adoption through huge subsidies, NIO has — through its sleek car designs, top-performance vehicles, swanky marketing campaigns and exclusive branding — cemented itself as the de facto leader in China’s booming premium EV category. Plus, NIO is pioneering a novel Battery-as-a-Service model that allows NIO drivers to rent car batteries (not own them), which significantly reduces the cost of the vehicles.
In other words, NIO is selling the coolest, highest-performance luxury EVs in China at blockbuster prices and at a time when all drivers in China are going electric. It’s no wonder the company is rattling off such huge growth rates, or that NIO stock is flying high.
That’s the good news.
The better news? This growth story is the top of the first inning.

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 89.8046. This is an overbought reading. However, a signal is not generated until the Oscillator crosses below 80 The last signal was a sell 6 period(s) ago.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 64.84. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a sell 23 period(s) ago.
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a buy 1 period(s) ago.
