Electric automaker Nio (NIO), the Tesla (TSLA) competitor, may be coming to a dealership near you in America. This move would be highly beneficial to Nio and may very well overtake electric vehicle maker Tesla in market share.
NIO is one of the hottest electric vehicle stocks traded on U.S. exchanges, but one downfall is that it doesn’t sell any vehicles in the United States.
An entry into the market by the electric Chinese producer would be a game changer for the entire U.S. car business. Fortunately for the U.S. companies now in the business, the prospect looks to be a long way down the road.

Sales of Chinese electric vehicles soared to as much as 158,000 compared to 3 years ago, but has dropped 23% month over month yet Tesla stock rose.
