Chinese Electric-Car Maker NIO Surge Almost 40% on Deal with Intel - Chinese electric-car Nio Inc (NYSE:NIO) jumped 37% overnight in the U.S. after the company signed a deal with an Intel Corp (NASDAQ:INTC) subsidiary to introduce a new driverless car technology to China and other markets.

The 37% jump in share prices was NIO’s biggest intra-day gain in more than a year. The troubled car-maker's shares tumbled 73% since its U.S. IPO in 2018.

The new self-driving car technology will be designed by Mobileye (F:0ME), Intel’s sub-unit. The first target market will be China, according to NIO’s company statement released on Nov. 5.

No financial details of the partnership were disclosed.

“The deal with Nio will also enable us to harvest data in compliance with Chinese regulations and improve mapping to support autonomous driving,” Mobileye (F:0ME) President and Chief Executive Officer Amnon Shashua told Reuters in an interview
