  • Nio’s CFO resigns; EV deliveries up 98.1% Y/Y in June.
  • Mixed technical signals as Nio’s stock shows both bullish and bearish indicators.

Nio Inc. has had a rough year, with the stock plunging 51.54% over the past year and 46.31% year-to-date. But the story doesn’t end there. The latest shake-up at the top and mixed technical indicators have made Nio a stock to watch closely.

Leadership Change: CFO Resigns, New CFO Steps Up

Nio’s Chief Financial Officer, Steven Wei Feng, resigned for personal and family reasons, effective Friday. Stepping into the role is Stanley Yu Qu, the company’s senior vice president of Finance. This news sent Nio shares down 2.67% as investors digested the leadership change.

Impressive EV Deliveries Amid Market Volatility

Despite the leadership turmoil, Nio’s electric vehicle (EV) deliveries have been impressive.

In June 2024, Nio delivered 21,209 EVs, a 98.1% year-over-year increase. The second quarter of 2024 saw 57,373 EVs delivered, up a staggering 143.9% year-over-year. As of June 30, 2024, Nio’s cumulative deliveries reached 537,020 vehicles.
