Mass production and delivery delays – common challenges facing China EV startups

China · Oct 10, 2018 · By Wang Xiao'e

As Tesla postponed delivery yet again, its Chinese rivals are scrambling too

When the time came, NIO said the vehicles would be ready instead at the Beijing Auto Show, at the end of April. But it missed the deadline yet again, presenting a new schedule on May 18, for 550 vehicles to be rolled out by June and 10,000 more by end-September.
