An electric car of the Chinese brand Nio inexplicably crashed from the third floor of the manufacturer. The two passengers were killed.
Chinese automaker Nio is Tesla’s main competitor in the country of Xi Jinping. Nio electric car is an entry ticket to A chosen and desirable club† The fact that two employees were brutally murdered in a horrific accident at the Shanghai headquarters is therefore a very bad advertisement for the company. Furthermore, Nio brought more harm to himself with a psychedelic press release.
What exactly happened remains unclear, but it is certain that a brand-new ET5 model crashed from the third floor on Wednesday night. Two occupants of the car were killed, they had to test the car. The company expressed its condolences and promised to provide support to the families of the affected workers, but the same statement also states that they “can confirm that it was an accident (not caused by the vehicle).”
The item sparked angry comments from Chinese users of the social networking site Weibo. They thought they were numb and cold. BBC News wrote that New had amended his public statement and put the sentence in parentheses. Maybe it’s an attempt to be more tactful.
