“Based on the analysis of the situation at the scene, it can be confirmed in advance that it was an accident and not related to the vehicle itself,” Nio wrote on Weibo, adding that “investigations are ongoing.”
The company did not specify what caused the accident. Various Chinese media reports described the floor from which the car fell as a test, parking or showroom.
