Publishing owner travel reports after major holidays is a way for local car companies to showcase their selling points, and Li Auto (NASDAQ: LI) is the latest one.

From February 8-17, Li Auto's owners accumulated about 518 million kilometers, an 89.1 percent increase from the normal workday, according to data released by the company yesterday.

During that period, 212 million kilometers were driven by pure electric power and 306 million kilometers were driven by fuel.

Li Auto is currently selling the Li L7, Li L8 and Li L9, which are all extended-range electric vehicles (EREVs), essentially plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs). The company will launch its first battery electric vehicle (BEV), the Li Mega MPV (Multi-Purpose Vehicle), on March 1.

The just-concluded Chinese New Year holiday was February 10-17, and Li Auto's report covered a slightly longer period than the legal holiday.

From February 8-17, a total of 355,000 people drove with Li Auto's AD assisted driving system for a total of 74.73 million kilometers, an increase of 121 percent from normal.

The longest mileage driven in a single day with AD on was 1,653 kilometers, according to Li Auto.

During the holiday season, owners drove 49.54 million kilometers using Li Auto's pilot assist feature NOA, according to the company.

In addition, Li Auto allowed owners to use its superchargers for free from February 9-17. Owners charged 1.09 million kWh during that period, saving RMB 1.6 million ($220,000) in charging fees, it said.

Li Auto's 337 supercharging stations provided more than 120,000 services from February 9-17, powering models from brands including (NASDAQ: TSLA), (OTCMKTS: BYDDF), and others.
