Yet none of it can prevent nio stock quote from tumbling on Tuesday: It dipped 6.4% in morning profession before regaining some of its lost ground. At 1:10 p.m. ET, however, Nio stock was still down regarding 3%.

An opponent might have just hinted at decreasing growth in Nio’s largest market, which appears to have alarmed financiers.

Nio, XPeng (XPEV -2.27%), and also Li Car are among the three largest electrical automobile (EV) gamers in China. On Tuesday, XPeng released its second-quarter numbers, as well as they were worrisome, to say the least.
