Li Auto’s Li ONE Deliveries Skyrocket 266% in February

EV maker Li Auto, Inc. (NASDAQ: LI) delivered 8,414 Li ONEs in the month of February. The number reflects a year-over-year rise of 265.8%. Since the launch of the SUV, the company has delivered 144,770 units.

Yanan Shen, the President of Li Auto, said, “During the Chinese New Year, our users enjoyed range-anxiety-free and pleasant family time, thanks to Li ONE’s range extension system that uses battery power for urban commuting and recharges during long-distance traveling. The combination of this system with the full-stack, self-developed NOA as part of Li ONE’s standard configuration creates a safer and more convenient driving experience and offers superior suitability for long-distance family travel.”

“At the same time, the holiday season and an outbreak of the pandemic in Suzhou have resulted in supply shortages and affected our production. We are taking additional measures to ensure supply and safeguard production, aiming to shorten the waiting time of delivery to our users,” Shen added.
