China has its horse for this race. Nio takes on Tesla with a car half price on Model X.

Tesla might have to fight for Chinese market after this China only SUV which will cost half as much as a Tesla Model X

Maybe Tesla will have to fight for other markets too, not only Chinese. Although the ES8 is only available in China, the firm hinted they are looking to expend into the US and Europe.

Don't have the 2017 numbers, but last year China manufactured 375,000 EVs, which is 43% of what was produced worldwide.

And now  Nio gets reinforcement. Taiwan's Wistron teams up with this company to target the rapidly growing EV market in China.

NIO is the only serious competitor  to Tesla's Model 3 right now. The ES8 will have battery swapping and that is something Tesla thought it isn't worth pursuing on a mass scale.

I wouldn't worry about Tesla. Even if there's something they didn't cover yet, they will find their way to overtake others.

I wouldn't be so sure. NIO is planning to build a fast charging network, 1,100 stations in China by 2020 and they won't stop on it. They are also thinking about charging van that will come to get EVs back on the road as far out  as over 62 miles and within 10 minutes. And that is definitely something Tesla didn't think about.

Well you're wrong about that because Tesla is the only one that has, so far, done the best job filling gaps for charging networks and various routes and uses. This is only NIO's way to try to attract new costumers, especially in the US market.

 China is currently the world's largest auto market and moving faster than the rest of EV automakers. And other automaker is now speeding up to produce cars because they don't want to lose their positions in the market.

We probably won't see those cars, at least not for the next few years.

I can't agree with you about this one. This is like a soccer game, everyone has the same chance to win. And Tesla is Read Madrid at this point.
