Sokon is one of Huawei's most important partners in the automotive sector, and the two are jointly building new models under the AITO brand.
Chongqing Sokon, one of Huawei's most important partners in the automotive sector, sold a record 12,418 new energy vehicles (NEVs) in June, figures it announced today show.
That's up 185.41 percent from 4,351 units a year ago and up 18.81 percent from 10,452 units in May.
The company sold 25,703 units of all vehicles in June, up 20.51 percent from a year earlier. This means that NEV sales accounted for 48.31 percent of its June sales.
From January to June, Sokon's NEV sales were 45,622 units, up 204.51 percent from the same period last year.
The company's production of NEVs in June was 11,508 units, up 243.52 percent year-on-year. From January to June, it produced 47,714 units of NEVs.
Sokon's NEV brand, Seres, sold 7,658 units in June, up 524.12 percent year-on-year. Year-to-date, Seres' cumulative sales were 21,581 units, up 884.98 percent year-on-year.
Sokon's existing vehicle brands include Seres, Dongfeng Fengguang, and DFSK, and its main products include SUVs, MPVs and minivans.
The company is drawing much attention because Huawei announced on April 20, 2021 that the company would officially start selling cars, with the Seres SF5 from Sokon's brand Seres being the first model to enter its channel.
Seres announced the launch of a premium NEV brand with Huawei called AITO on December 2 last year, and on December 23 last year, the brand unveiled its first model, the Wenjie M5.
