This is the third consecutive month of record deliveries for Leapmotor, bringing the cumulative number of deliveries so far this year to 64,038.
Chinese electric vehicle startup Leapmotor delivered a record 12,044 vehicles in July, the third consecutive record month, according to data released today by the company.
That's up 173.48 percent from 4,404 vehicles a year ago and up 6.97 percent from 11,259 vehicles in June, CnEVPost calculations show.
But Leapmotor posted a year-on-year growth rate of more than 177 percent, seemingly because of an adjustment to last year's figures. Its official Weibo account still shows delivery figures of 4,404 units for July last year.
From January to July, Leapmotor delivered 64,038 vehicles, up 267 percent from 17,449 units in the same period last year, data monitored by CnEVPost shows.
Leapmotor was founded in 2015 and is currently delivering the mini vehicle T03, the coupe model S01, and the flagship SUV model C11.
The company did not provide a breakdown of deliveries for the different models.
Leapmotor announced on Sunday evening on its mobile app that the subsidized price of all T03 models will be increased, citing upstream raw material price increases in addition to a special edition of the model.
The company suspended taking orders for the T03 at 22:00 on July 31 until the adjustment takes effect at 0:00 on August 1. Orders placed before then are not affected.
The Leapmotor T03 is currently offered in six versions, with the special edition's price of RMB 85,900 ($12,710) remaining unchanged. The other five versions have been increased in price by RMB 5,600 to RMB 6,600, with the latest price range being RMB 79,500 to RMB 96,500.
This is the second time in the past six months that Leapmotor has raised the price of the T03.
On March 26, Leapmotor increased the prices of two versions of the T03 by RMB 5,000 and three other versions by RMB 7,000.
On March 19, Leapmotor raised the price of the entire C11 lineup of its flagship SUV by RMB 20,000 - 30,000.
On May 10, Leapmotor unveiled the flagship sedan C01 and began accepting reservations for a price range of RMB 180,000 - 270,000.
