Nio Inc. – ADR (NIO) kicked off its Nio Day 2020 event in Chengdu late Saturday local time amid much fanfare. The event was attended by scores of users and Nio fans from across China, and was livestreamed. The annual event is usually held in December, but this year was held in January for unspecified reasons.

In line with reports in the run-up to the event, the company unveiled its first-ever sedan, the Nio Power Swap Station 2.0 and the 150-kilowatt-hour battery pack.

The interior is designed with a "second living room" concept. The car comes with Nio's in-vehicle artificial intelligence, NOMI, which provides infotainment and navigation functions. It has a 12.8-inch AMOLED central display and uses a third-generation Qualcomm Snapdragon (QCOM) automotive cockpit platform.

Some of the other features underlined by Li included dual beam LED headlights, double dash daylight running lights, integrated X-bar, 3-dimensional crystal-light heartbeat tail light, laminated all-glass roof that insulates against 99.9% of UV rays, and microline headliner.
