NIO's (NYSE: NIO) ES7 SUV has seen slightly longer wait times in China. Late last month some owners of the model voiced their displeasure as the new ES6 is coming.
The ES7's current expected delivery date is about 4 weeks, up from about 3 weeks previously, information from the NIO App monitored by CnEVPost shows.
The last change in the information was on April 25, when the model's wait time was reduced from 3 to 5 weeks to about 3 weeks.

The NIO ES7, launched on June 15, 2022, is NIO's second model based on the NT 2.0 platform and is the first SUV on this second-generation platform.
NIO began deliveries of the ES7 on August 28, 2022, with a cumulative total of 15,123 units delivered by the end of January this year, according to data monitored by CnEVPost.
Late last month, many ES7 owners formed WeChat groups in order to jointly protest to NIO arguing that the automaker betrayed them because the new ES6 will not only have lower prices, but also have a competitive edge with their vehicles.
NIO officially launched the 2023 ET7 sedan and gave the improved ES6 its debut on the first day of the Shanghai auto show on April 18.
The new ES6 is already available for pre-order, but the official launch will be in late May. William Li, NIO founder, chairman and CEO, said previously the model will move quickly from official launch to delivery.
NIO's website and app currently showcase seven models -- the new ES8, ES7, new ES6, EC7, EC6, ET7, and ET5.
In the vehicle configurator of NIO App, there are 5 models available -- new ES8, ES7, EC7, ET7, ET5, and the configurator of new ES6 and EC6 based on NT 1.0 platform is not available.
Wait time information for all other NIO models remains unchanged, with the new ES8 still showing deliveries expected to begin in June, the EC7 wait time around 5 weeks, the ET7 around 3 weeks, and the ET5 around 2 weeks.
