“Attributed to the product transition based on the NT2.0 Platform, coupled with the expansion of our power network and the strengthening of our sales capabilities, we expect a solid growth in vehicle deliveries in the second half of 2023,” added Mr. Li.

“In July 2023, NIO closed the US$738.5 million strategic equity investment from CYVN Entities, which demonstrated NIO’s unique values in the smart electric vehicle industry.

Financial Results for the Second Quarter of 2023Revenues

  • Total revenues in the second quarter of 2023 were RMB8,771.7 million (US$1,209.7 million), representing a decrease of 14.8% from the second quarter of 2022 and a decrease of 17.8 % from the first quarter of 2023.
  • Vehicle sales in the second quarter of 2023 were RMB7,185.2million (US$990.9 million), representing a decrease of 24.9% from the second quarter of 2022 and a decrease of 22.1% from the first quarter of 2023. The decrease in vehicle sales over the second quarter of 2022 was mainly due to lower average selling price as a result of higher proportion of ET5 and 75 kWh standard-range battery pack deliveries and the decrease in delivery volume. The decrease in vehicle sales over the first quarter of 2023 was mainly due to a decrease in delivery volume.
  • Other sales in the second quarter of 2023 were RMB1,586.5 million (US$218.8 million), representing an increase of 119.9% from the second quarter of 2022 and an increase of 9.3% from the first quarter of 2023. The increase in other sales over the second quarter of 2022 was mainly due to the increase in sales of used cars, accessories, and provision of power solutions, as a result of continued growth of our users. The increase in other sales over the first quarter of 2023 was mainly due to the increase in sales of used cars, and provision of power solutions, as a result of continued growth of our users, partially offset by a decrease in revenue from provision of auto financing services.

Cost of Sales and Gross Margin

  • Cost of sales in the second quarter of 2023 was RMB8,684.8 million (US$1,197.7 million), representing a decrease of 3.0% from the second quarter of 2022 and a decrease of 17.4% from the first quarter of 2023. The decrease in cost of sales over the second quarter of 2022 was mainly driven by the decrease in battery cost per vehicle and the decrease in delivery volume, partially offset by the increase in cost from sales of used cars, provision of power solutions and sales of accessories. The decrease in cost of sales over the first quarter of 2023 was mainly attributed to the decrease in delivery volume.
  • Gross profit in the second quarter of 2023 was RMB87.0 million (US$12.0 million), representing a decrease of 93.5% from the second quarter of 2022 and a decrease of 46.4% from the first quarter of 2023.
  • Gross margin in the second quarter of 2023 was 1.0%, compared with 13.0% in the second quarter of 2022 and 1.5% in the first quarter of 2023. The decrease in gross margin over the second quarter of 2022 was mainly attributed to the decreased vehicle margin. The decrease of gross margin over the first quarter of 2023 was mainly attributed to the increased sales of used cars with lower margin.
  • Vehicle margin in the second quarter of 2023 was 6.2%, compared with 16.7% in the second quarter of 2022 and 5.1% in the first quarter of 2023. The decrease in vehicle margin from the second quarter of 2022 was mainly attributed to changes in product mix, partially offset by the decreased battery cost per unit. The increase in vehicle margin from the first quarter of 2023 was mainly due to decreased promotion discounts for the previous generation of ES8, ES6 and EC6.

Operating Expenses                               

  • Research and development expenses in the second quarter of 2023 were RMB3,344.6 million (US$461.2 million), representing an increase of 55.6% from the second quarter of 2022 and an increase of 8.7% from the first quarter of 2023.

The increase in research and development expenses over the second quarter of 2022 and the first quarter of 2023 was mainly attributed to (i) the increased personnel costs in research and development functions and the increased share-based compensation expenses recognized in the second quarter of 2023, and (ii) the incremental design and development costs for new products and technologies.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses in the second quarter of 2023 were RMB2,856.6 million (US$393.9 million), representing an increase of 25.2% from the second quarter of 2022 and an increase of 16.8% from the first quarter of 2023.

Non-GAAP Disclosure The Company uses non-GAAP measures, such as adjusted cost of sales (non-GAAP), adjusted research and development expenses (non-GAAP), adjusted selling, general and administrative expenses (non-GAAP), adjusted loss from operations (non-GAAP), adjusted net loss (non-GAAP), adjusted net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders (non-GAAP) and adjusted basic and diluted net loss per share/ADS (non-GAAP), in evaluating its operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes. The Company defines adjusted cost of sales (non-GAAP), adjusted research and development expenses (non-GAAP), adjusted selling, general and administrative expenses (non-GAAP) and adjusted loss from operations (non-GAAP) and adjusted net loss (non-GAAP) as cost of sales, research and development expenses, selling, general and administrative expenses, loss from operations and net loss excluding share-based compensation expenses. The Company defines adjusted net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders (non-GAAP), adjusted basic and diluted net loss per share/ADS (non-GAAP) as net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders and basic and diluted net loss per share/ADS excluding share-based compensation expenses and accretion on redeemable non-controlling interests to redemption value. By excluding the impact of share-based compensation expenses and accretion on redeemable non-controlling interests to redemption value, the Company believes that the non-GAAP financial measures help identify underlying trends in its business and enhance the overall understanding of the Company’s past performance and future prospects. The Company also believes that the non-GAAP financial measures allow for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by the Company’s management in its financial and operational decision-making.

The non-GAAP financial measures are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP methods of accounting and reporting used by other companies. The non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and when assessing the Company’s operating performance, investors should not consider them in isolation, or as a substitute for net loss or other consolidated statements of comprehensive loss data prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The Company encourages investors and others to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

The Company mitigates these limitations by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable U.S. GAAP performance measures, all of which should be considered when evaluating the Company’s performance.

For more information on the non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned “Unaudited Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results” set forth at the end of this press release.

In connection therewith, the Company also determined that the 2026 Notes should have been classified as a current liability in its previously announced unaudited financial information for the three months ended March 31, 2023, which increases current portion of long-term borrowings and decreases long-term borrowings as of March 31, 2023 by RMB3,795 million, respectively. Nevertheless, this misclassification did not impact the Company’s total liabilities, net equity or funded position, nor did it have any impact upon the reported results of operations as of and for the three months ended March 31, 2023. Moreover, the misclassification did not impact any covenants with any banking institutions with lending or financing arrangements with the Company.
