Nio signed an agreement a cooperation framework agreement with the Hefei City for raising 10 billion yuan, or $1.42 billion.

Nio has also agreed to shift its China headquarters to the Hefei City, the capital city of the Anhui Province in Eastern China.

Apart from the headquarters, the company will build its base for R&D, sales and production, while also developing a national operational system with Hefei as the focus.

On shifting to Hebei, Nio hopes to become a leading enterprise with a production value of 100 billion yuan in five years.

Nio has an ongoing cooperation agreement with Hefei-based automaker JAC Motors, which was signed in 2016. The EV maker also kicked off mass production of its EC6 model at the JAC NIO Advanced Manufacturing Center in Hefei.

Nio shares are skyrocketing 29.12% to $5.01 in Tuesday's pre-market session.
