Aston Martin Share Price Surges As FTSE 100 Index Extends Gains
--FILE--A NextEV Nio EP9 electric supercar is on display at the NIO House in Shanghai, China, 16 November 2018.
China's Tesla wannabe Nio Inc. said its 2018 vehicle sales totaled 11,348 units, making it the first Chinese electric-car startup to top 10,000 sales in a year. U.S.-listed Nio has partnered with conventional automaker JAC Motors to produce its pure electric model ES8 since 2016. In December, Nio launched its second commercial model, the five-seat ES6 SUV. Nio has been planning to set up its own manufacturing facility. In January 2018, it was reportedly in talks with the Jiading district in Shanghai for a new factory. In September, Nio confirmed a plan for building a Shanghai factory by 2020. However, the plan has apparently fallen under the shadow of Tesla's groundbreaking in Shanghai, where its new factory is set to start production of the Tesla Model 3 by the end of this year.
