HEFEI -- Chinese electric car maker Nio's 100,000th vehicle rolled off the production line on Wednesday in Hefei, capital of East China's Anhui province.

NIO has invested over 14 billion yuan in research and development (R&D) and will inject another 5 billion yuan in R&D in 2021, according to the company.

It added that a total of 197 NIO battery swapping stations have been built across China, and the number is expected to jump to 500 by the end of this year.
