NIO's deliveries in April fell further to 6,658 units, as its product switchover continues, according to data released today.
That's up 31.22 percent from 5,074 a year ago, but down 35.85 percent from 10,378 units in March, the second consecutive monthly decline.
The delivery volume included 1,713 electric SUVs and 4,945 electric sedans, NIO said, without providing a model-specific breakdown.
In April, most deliveries were attributed to the ET5 and ES7, while NIO has been upgrading its product from NT 1.0 to NT 2.0, the company said.
In late April, NIO began steadily ramping up production and deliveries of the EC7, it added.
The EC7 was launched on NIO Day 2022, December 24, 2022, and the new ES8 was also launched at the event.
NIO announced plans at the time for deliveries of the EC7 to begin in May and deliveries of the new ES8 to begin in June.
On April 28, NIO EC7 started delivery, slightly ahead of the original plan.
Deliveries of the NT 2.0-based flagship SUV, the all-new ES8, are expected to begin in June, NIO said today, repeating its previous plan.
In January-April, NIO delivered 37,699 units, up 22.23 percent from 30,842 units in the same period last year. Shanghai went into Covid lockdown at the end of March last year, which had a serious impact on car sales in China, especially in the eastern Chinese city that is home to NIO's global headquarters.
As of April 30, the cumulative deliveries of NIO cars reached 327,255 units.
On April 18, NIO launched the 2023 ET7 and unveiled the new ES6 on the first day of the Shanghai auto show.
The new ET7 is already taking orders for lock-in, and deliveries will start in mid-May. The new ES6 is open for pre-orders, but the official launch and delivery will be in late May.
