In order to further develop the charger portfolio of NIO Power, a new, powerful fast charger had to be designed.
The charger will be installed next to the known NIO Power Swap stations, which have been built along to the major highways in China. The new DC power chargers are able to charge an NIO ES8 to 80% within half an hour.
We were tasked to design the chargers in the most ergonomic way, and at the same time show the NIO brand clearly. These charging poles will be installed in rows next to the parking lots. Safety and visibility play a major role.
The chargers are able to read the car’s charging status and will display the information for the user to see on the LED light strip.
The cable is neatly stored away when not in use and extends when needed. The illuminated NIO logo is prominently displayed on the top to help the user find the charging spots easily.
