XPeng expects to deliver about 9,000 units in February, and deliveries in March are expected to pick up to about 16,000 units on par with last December, according to local media.

As of January 25, XPeng Motors had delivered 12,195 units in China this month, and total deliveries for the month are expected to be 13,000 units, local media Ijiwei reported today.

XPeng revealed the figures in a recent communication with institutions, saying that the existing order volume is 16,481 units, according to the report.

XPeng delivered a record 16,000 vehicles in December, up 2.5 percent from 15,613 in November, according to figures released by the company earlier this month.

The 13,000 deliveries represent a 116 percent year-on-year increase, but an 18.8 percent decline from December.

The decline in January deliveries was mainly due to the traditionally slow sales season before the Chinese New Year, Ijiwei reported.

XPeng's flagship sedan P7 had the highest number of orders and deliveries in January, with orders currently at 7,278 units. The G3 SUV has the lowest sales among all models and it will be marginalized in the future due to its low selling price and low profitability, according to the report.

XPeng expects it to see a large drop in deliveries in February, which are expected to be 9,000 units, according to the report.

But XPeng's deliveries in March are expected to pick up to about 16,000 units on par with last December, with an order target of 22,000 units, the report said.

XPeng delivered 98,000 vehicles in 2021, exceeding its original target of 90,000 vehicles. The company is aiming to deliver 250,000 units in 2022, with a challenging target of reaching 300,000 units, according to the report.

XPeng believes that new energy vehicles (NEVs) will continue to develop at a rapid pace, with sales of pure electric vehicles expected to grow to about 8 million units and a penetration rate of 40 percent in the next five years.
