Li Auto shared the numbers, saying its sales last week far outpaced those of other local new car-making brands.
Li Auto (NASDAQ: LI) today shared sales figures for the major new car makers as well as luxury car companies in China for the last week of April, which is worth a look, even though many automakers have already announced deliveries for last month.
For the week ending April 24 to April 30, Li Auto sold 8,100 units, far more than any other new carmaker brand, it said today on Weibo.
Li Auto continues to be in the top five luxury brands selling in China, the highest-ranking Chinese brand on the list, outpacing other traditional luxury brands besides Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi in weekly sales, it said.
Li L7 delivered more than 10,000 units in its first full delivery month, making it one of the preferred luxury five-seat SUVs for more families, Li Auto said.
Li Auto didn't specify what statistic that sales figure was based on, though apparently it was insurance registrations. Its figures for the first three weeks of April were 7,200, 6,300 and 4,177.
Previously, we had access to those numbers every Tuesday, and it was Li Auto's practice to share some of them later to show off that it was leading the pack among car-making newcomers.
The major third-party providers of Chinese auto insurance registrations data, as well as Weibo bloggers, stopped sharing them in April, though Li Auto continues to share some of them.
Li Auto delivered 25,681 vehicles in April, another monthly high while surpassing the 20,000-delivery mark for the second consecutive month, according to data it released on May 1.
The US electric vehicle maker sold 75,842 China-made vehicles in April, including exports, according to data released earlier today by the China Passenger Car Association (CPCA).
The sales include sales in China as well as exports, and the breakdown is expected to be available in the coming days.
NIO (NYSE: NIO) sold 2,600 units last week, according to Li Auto. The company sold 2,000, 700 and 1,316 units in the first three weeks of April, according to the previous data.
NIO's deliveries in April fell further to 6,658 units, as its product switchover continues, according to data released on May 1.
XPeng (NYSE: XPEV) saw sales of 2,500 units last week. It sold 1,900, 1,300 and 904 units in the first three weeks of April.
XPeng delivered 7,079 vehicles in April, down 21.36 percent from 9,002 a year ago, but up 1.1 percent from 7,002 in March.
Zeekr sold 2,300 units last week, a figure that was 2,100, 1,600 and 1,476 units in the first three weeks of April.
