Electric Vehicle maker, Nio inc. (NYSE:NIO) is working with WeLion New Energy to launch a hybrid solid-liquid electrolyte battery. The battery will have a range of 1,000 kilometers and is based on the ET7 model.

NIO unveiled its flagship sedan ET7 at the NIO Day 2020 event on January 9, 2021, it said the model would be available in a version with a 150-kWh solid-state battery starting in the fourth quarter of 2022, giving it an NEDC range of 1,000 kilometers. At the time, the company did not disclose the supplier of the battery.

The announcement was issued by Li Hong, chief scientist and founder of the solid-state battery supplier WeLion, during comments at the China EV 100 Forum. The battery is expected to start mass production by the end of this year or the first half of next year, said Li, a researcher at the Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences.

It might make sense to invest money in this company and withdraw money from Meta stock. Investors have lost nearly $200 billion from Meta financial stock declining market valuation. Inflation, disruptions in advertisers’ supply chains, and users switching to products that are “monetized at lower rates” are among the key problems facing the company. According to Refinitiv, Meta’s revenue in the first quarter was between $27 billion and $29 billion, while analysts had expected it to exceed $30 billion.
