On January 25, 2020, NIO OS 2.9.0 was officially released, making it the first update of 2021. With Firmware-Over-the-Air (FOTA) updates, NIO makes driving easier with smarter controls, anytime and anywhere.

Using the NIO APP, users have access to a more convenient system upgrade with a single click. 

A couple upgrades included in NIO OS 2.9.0 are smarter automatic parking and nearby summon. With smarter automatic parking, Self-Automatic Parking Assist with Fusion (S-APA with Fusion) identifies the surrounding parking spaces and automatically parks the vehicle for you, hassle-free. 

Next, nearby summon allows you to move your car straight forward or backward using the NIO APP, allowing for effortless movement in and out of tight parking spaces.
