Li Auto is facing capacity bottlenecks in its delivery growth, with the company's weekly vehicle insurance registrations at just under 8,000 units per week in July.

Earlier today, the company posted figures on Weibo showing it sold 7,900 units in the week of July 24 to July 30, slightly higher than the 7,800 it sold in the previous week.
