As before, Li Auto didn't explain the basis for calculating the weekly sales, but apparently, they were insurance registrations. The company suspended sharing those numbers in May, but has since resumed sharing them.

Li Auto's insurance registrations were down 3.9 percent last week compared to the previous week's 7,700 units.
