Power Swap is an integral part of NIO’s Battery as a Service (BaaS) solution and it allows one to charge, swap, or upgrade their batteries. It is a time-efficient solution for some users’ needs instead of charging the battery. It also allows users to upgrade the battery if they wish (for the relevant fee), a special way to progressively enjoy the evolution of battery technology — from a driver’s perspective at least.

Its Power Swap service physically switches out the internal battery (in a few minutes) — an approach dismissed by Musk — while a mobile charging service visits users to top their cars up if needed. Nio can also access China’s national charging network, 59.6 percent of which are classified as “superchargers.”
