Aito said it is ramping up delivery capacity, which is expected to top 30,000 vehicles in a single month beginning in 2024, as it secures more than 120,000 firm orders for the new M7.

Aito, the new energy vehicle (NEV) brand backed by Chinese tech giant , delivered a record number of vehicles in December, as the new Aito M7 brought in a large number of orders.

Aito delivered 24,468 vehicles in December, up 141.23 percent from 10,143 in the same month in 2022 and up 29.69 percent from 18,827 in November, according to its announcement today.

The new Aito M7 contributed 20,611 units, or 84 percent, Aito said. That means the M5 delivered 3,857 units in December, considering Aito's current models in delivery include only the M5 and M7.
