had previously mentioned that the availability of air suspension, which has had the worst impact on deliveries, would improve in June.

Geely's premium electric vehicle (EV) subsidiary Zeekr delivered 4,302 units of the Zeekr 001 - its only current model - in June, down slightly by 0.65 percent from May's 4,330 units, data it released today showed.

Since deliveries began last October, Zeekr has delivered a total of 25,017 Zeekr 001 vehicles, data monitored by CnEVPost shows.

Zeekr did not mention in its announcement today why June deliveries did not exceed those of May, having previously said that one of the factors that most heavily impacted deliveries would improve in June.

With the commissioning of Weibake's dedicated production line for Zeekr, the supply of the most production-impacting air suspension will improve in June and is expected to meet production of all orders with the optional air suspension by January 2022, Zeekr said when it announced May deliveries on June 1.

But specific production and deliveries are still subject to greater uncertainty due to the Covid outbreak and supply chain, Zeekr mentioned at the time.

Zeekr added 26 new sales stores in June, as well as 45 charging stations, bringing it to 327 stations covering 47 cities in China, the company said today.

To date, Zeekr's charging map accesses a third-party charging network that covers 340,000 charging terminals in 329 cities in China, it said.

Zeekr's home charging stake installation service has covered 299 cities in 31 provinces and cities, it said, adding that the company has received more than 17,600 cumulative orders for home charging stake installations.

In June, Zeekr launched its ZEEKR Subscription service in Hangzhou, allowing potential consumers the opportunity to have an in-depth experience with Zeekr 001.

Currently available in subscription cycles of 3, 7 or 15 days, Zeekr also offers regular subscriptions on a monthly basis for 1-12 months, it said.

China's major EV companies typically announce their delivery figures for the previous month on the first day of each month, and more companies including (NYSE: NIO, HKG: 9866, SGX: Nio), Motors (NYSE: XPEV, HKG: 9868), (NASDAQ: LI, HKG: 2015) are expected to release their numbers later today.
