Nio and DEEPAL Collaborate To Make EV Charging More Convenient

DEEPAL will now be able to help Nio users find EV charging stations easier

On 23 April 2024, a landmark collaboration unfolded between Wuhan Nio Energy Co., Ltd. (Nio Power) and DEEPAL Automobile Technology Co., Ltd. (DEEPAL), as they officially inked a cooperation agreement to interconnect their charging networks. This strategic move aims to streamline electric vehicle (EV) charging accessibility and enhance user experience.

Under the terms of the agreement, DEEPAL gains unfettered access to Nio charging stations, slated to commence from May onwards. Consequently, DEEPAL users can leverage the DEEPAL app and in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems to seamlessly locate Nio chargers, initiate navigation to their chosen station, and conveniently settle payments. 

Moreover, this collaboration promises a more expansive charging infrastructure and improved efficiency for DEEPAL users, courtesy of Nio Power’s robust network. Beyond this pivotal partnership, Nio Power is poised to extend its cooperative efforts to other brands under Changan Auto. 

This expansion entails integrating their respective applications, mini-programs, and IVI systems with Nio’s charging infrastructure, enriching the charging experience for users of these brands. The overarching goal is to deliver a seamless, user-centric charging solution that transcends brand boundaries.

On top of that, Nio currently stands at the forefront with an impressive network comprising 3,770 charging stations and 21,931 Nio Chargers. Notably, this includes 364 Nio Power Charger Stations and 1,422 Nio Power Chargers strategically positioned along expressways. 

As a result, Nio emerged as the frontrunner, boasting the largest fleet of chargers and superchargers in service areas along China’s expressways. Crucially, Nio Chargers have maintained an open-door policy to users of all new energy vehicle (NEV) brands from inception. 

Demonstrating their commitment to inclusivity, Nio allocates 80 percent of its electricity to non-Nio EVs, underscoring their dedication to providing a welcoming and accommodating service to all NEV users. In essence, this collaboration between Nio Power and DEEPAL marks a significant step towards a more interconnected and user-friendly EV charging ecosystem. 


As the EV market continues to burgeon, such partnerships pave the way for enhanced accessibility, convenience, and sustainability, driving the adoption of electric vehicles to new heights. So what do you guys think? Should Malaysia also implement something similar here in the country when the infrastructure is finally viable?
