The Nio Phone boasts over 30 car-specific functions, including the ability to instruct the car to park itself and notify the car to drive itself to the owner’s location in restricted spaces and at low speeds. It can also unlock the car, even when the phone is turned off.
Three models of the Nio Phone are available, priced between 6,499 and 7,499 yuan ($890-$1,030), and it will initially be sold only in China, with deliveries starting on September 28.
Nio’s CEO, William Li, sees the smartphone as a platform to collect user data, which can enhance user experience and customer loyalty. While it’s expected to contribute to Nio’s ecosystem, the primary focus is likely on data collection rather than generating significant revenue from smartphone sales.
This move by Nio reflects the growing intersection of the smartphone and automotive industries, with companies like Meizu and Xiaomi also exploring connections between smartphones and vehicles. Nio’s investment in self-developed technologies and efforts to build a strong customer base have positioned it as a prominent player in the EV market in China.
Despite initial concerns from investors about Nio taking on additional projects, the launch of the Nio Phone underscores the company’s commitment to advancing its EV ecosystem and integrating technology to enhance the user experience.
