Zeekr said the availability of air suspension, which previously had the biggest impact on deliveries, will improve significantly in June.
Zeekr delivered 4,330 units of the Zeekr 001 - its only current model - in May, up 102.6 percent from April, the Geely-owned premium electric vehicle (EV) brand said today.
It's a new single-month high for Zeekr deliveries. It has delivered a total of 20,715 Zeekr 001 vehicles since deliveries began last October, according to data monitored by CnEVPost.
With its supplier Weibake's dedicated production line for Zeekr in production, the supply of the most production-impacting air suspension will improve in June and is expected to meet the production of all orders with the optional air suspension by January 2022, Zeekr said.
Specific production and deliveries, however, remain subject to uncertainty due to the Covid outbreak and supply chain, Zeekr noted, adding that it will communicate closely with supply chain partners to ensure deliveries.
