Tesla or Nio: Which Is A Safer Bet?

All in all, Nio’s recent growth and slightly lower valuation makes it a more compelling investment. That said, Nio is still a riskier bet, given its high cash burn and fierce competition in the world’s largest electric vehicle market.

Also, the fast improving profitability picture provides investors a better safety net.
