The Shanghai-based electric vehicle maker said it delivered 3,533 vehicles in July, up a whopping 322% year-over-year.
“In July, we are pleased to have achieved the second-highest monthly delivery results despite the impact on productions due to a 5-day suspension of manufacturing to prepare for EC6 productions and other flood-related supply chain challenges,” William Bin Li, the founder, chairman, and chief executive officer of NIO, said in a statement today.
He added, “More proudly, we have achieved a record-high monthly order growth, attributed to a stronger demand of the ES8 and ES6, together with the increasing EC6 orders, thanks to the continuous support of our users. We believe we will be able to increase our production capacity significantly to support higher deliveries in the third quarter of 2020.”
NIO unveiled that the pre-subsidy price for its five-passenger electric coupe SUV EC6 would start at 386,000 yuan. The company expects deliveries to start in September.
