NIO's (NYSE: NIO) EC7 coupe SUV and the ET5 sedan saw slightly longer wait times in China after the information for the ES7 SUV saw a similar change a week ago.
The EC7's current expected delivery date is 5-7 weeks, up from about 5 weeks previously, information from the NIO App monitored by CnEVPost shows.
The last change in the model's wait time information was on April 28, when it changed from about 4 weeks to about 5 weeks.
The EC7 was launched on NIO Day 2022, December 24, 2022, and NIO announced plans at the time that deliveries of the EC7 would begin in May.
On April 28, NIO EC7 started delivery, slightly ahead of the original plan.
The EC7 is NIO's second coupe SUV after the EC6, with a wind resistance coefficient of only 0.23 Cd, which NIO said is the lowest among mass-produced SUVs worldwide.
In addition to the EC7, the ET5 also has a slightly longer wait time.
The current expected delivery date for the ET5 is 2-3 weeks, slightly higher than the previous time of about 2 weeks. On April 10, the wait time for the sedan was reduced from about 3 weeks to about 2 weeks.
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 the NIO App, there are 5 models available -- new ES8, ES7, EC7, ET7, ET5. The configurator of the new ES6 and EC6 based on the 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 ES7 wait time at about 4 weeks, and the ET7 at about 3 weeks.
The last change in wait times for NIO models was on May 9, when the expected delivery date for the ES7 went from about 3 weeks to about 4 weeks.
