Apart from owning the NIO ET7, Xizhu is also known to be the first owner of the NIO ES6 sharing his experience through a post on the NIO App on July 17th.
On his way to Tibet, Xizhu suffered two flat tires because most of the roads were filled with gravel and potholes which were very unfriendly for sedan-type vehicles.
Xizhu had time to change tires, but that didn’t take care of the dynamic balance and alignment of the four wheels. The NIO team in Lhasa adjusted it while Xizhu rested at the hotel.
Xizhu went to a battery swap station in Lhasa and said that users usually have to queue to get a 100 kWh remote battery pack here.
The battery swap station in Lhasa is NIO’s 1,000th battery swap station in China, which started operations on July 6.
The battery swap station in Lhasa is NIO’s first to use 100 percent clean energy. All electricity used comes from photovoltaic or hydropower.
Interestingly, on July 12, Tesla’s official Weibo account shared a video showing a user named Trensen, and his friend also reaching Base Camp Everest in their Tesla electric vehicle.
