Chinese language luxurious electrical car maker Nio printed a combined set of This fall 2020 outcomes on Monday. Whereas the corporate’s loss per American Depositary Share was wider than anticipated at about -$0.14, revenues got here in barely forward of expectations rising 46.7% sequentially to about $1.02 billion, pushed by stronger deliveries of the ES8, ES6, and EC6 automobiles.

Will this impression high-flying Chinese language electrical car makers Nio (NYSE: NIO) and Li Auto – who focuses on SUVs and have gained loads of traction within the Chinese language market in current quarters. It appears to be like prefer it. There have been indicators of a slowdown for each EV gamers of their January 2021 supply figures. Deliveries of Li Auto’s Li-One SUV declined by 12% versus December to five,379. Nio, too, noticed supply development in January gradual to three% in comparison with December, when deliveries grew by round 30%. Whereas these traits might not totally be tied to Tesla’s entry into the crossover market, Tesla is predicted to place stress on each corporations.

Tesla has been gaining floor in China. It offered over 23,000 regionally made Mannequin 3 automobiles in China in December – that’s extra automobiles than the massive three EV startups Nio, Li Auto, and Xpeng put collectively. Now the Mannequin Y is arguably going to be extra widespread in comparison with the Mannequin 3, contemplating Chinese language buyer’s desire for crossovers and SUVs. Though the Mannequin Y is unlikely to qualify for China’s nationwide subsidy for electrical automobiles, not like the Mannequin 3 sedan, Tesla has additionally priced the car competitively, beginning at about RMB 339,900 ($52,500). That’s under the RMB 353,600 sponsored beginning value for Nio’s EC6 SUV, and barely forward of the RMB 328,000 sponsored value for Li Auto’s SUVs. Tesla’s stronger world model picture and software program options may make its automobiles way more engaging to Chinese language prospects.

Nio inventory has rallied by over 15% during the last week, amid anticipation forward of the corporate’s annual Nio day occasion that was held on Saturday. Nio’s market cap now stands at a whopping $93 billion- nearly as a lot as Basic Motors and Ford mixed. Does Nio warrant such a valuation? The corporate is actually rising quick, with Income poised to double to about $5 billion in 2021 with deliveries rising quick (Nio delivered a document 7,000 automobiles in December). The addressable market can be rising shortly, contemplating that China – Nio’s house nation – has set a goal that 25% of automobile gross sales by 2025 have to be new power automobiles that aren’t purely gasoline-driven. That being stated, is Nio constructing a aggressive benefit to justify its present valuation and fend off rivals because the market will get extra crowded?

Nio seems to be innovating in two key areas – particularly battery expertise and self-driving software program, and it is a massive a part of the narrative driving the inventory. Nio is betting massive on modular batteries for its EVs that may be swapped out in a matter of minutes, serving to to cut back vary nervousness whereas offering batteries as a service (BaaS) underneath a subscription program. Nevertheless, that is unlikely to offer the corporate an edge, as different gamers may also simply replicate this. In truth, China’s EV coverage encourages constructing in battery swapping. EVs priced above RMB300,000 (round $46,000) are granted subsidies provided that they’ve a swapping choice. Nio has additionally unveiled a denser battery pack with 150 kWh of capability (up from 100kWh at the moment).

For perspective, Tesla has logged a complete of three billion autonomous miles as of final April whereas Google’s Waymo logged about 20 million miles. It’s not clear how Nio will fare on these counts.

Total, whereas Nio is actually rising quick, constructing a model that’s changing into synonymous with luxurious Chinese language EVs, its valuation appears to be like wealthy in our view, as we don’t see a sustainable aggressive benefit but. Nio now trades at about 18.6x consensus 2021 Revenues, which implies that it’s valued equally to dear Tesla, whose sturdy software program and self-driving capabilities partly justify its valuation.

Whereas Nio is little question rising shortly, with Income on monitor to double this yr, the inventory appears to be like overvalued in our view for a few causes. Firstly, there’s a chance that Tesla may give Nio a run for its cash in its house turf, because it prepares to launch a regionally made Mannequin Y SUV, which experiences point out might be priced cheaper than Nio’s entry-level SUV ES6, which begins at $54k. Along with a probably cheaper price, Tesla’s stronger model picture and software program options may make its automobiles way more engaging to prospects. The corporate may additionally face challenges additional scaling up manufacturing. For instance, Nio recalled about 5,000 automobiles final yr after experiences of a number of fires. Nio can be very richly valued at about 26x projected 2020 Revenues, in comparison with Tesla which trades at about 12x.
