Nio On Roller Coaster Since IPO

Referred to as “China’s Tesla,” start-up Nio Inc. (NYSE: NIO) is Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA)'s rising competitor in the autonomous electric car landscape. Based on Friday’s stock performance, Nio might have the ability to surpass other companies in the space.

Nio recently reported over 17,000 vehicles on order, amounting to $7 million in sales. The company sells an electric SUV for $65,000, a much lower price point than Tesla's $79,500 Model X.
