NIO Inc. Provides January 2020 Delivery Update
Delivered 1,598 vehicles in January 2020, including 1,493 ES6s and 105 ES8s
- Cumulative deliveries of ES8 and ES6 reached 33,511
SHANGHAI, China, Feb. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NIO Inc. (“NIO” or the “Company”) (NYSE: NIO), a pioneer in China’s premium electric vehicle market, today provided its January 2020 delivery
NIO delivered 1,598 vehicles in January 2020, 11.5% lower than the same month last year. This decrease was primarily due to the reduction in business days in January due to the comparatively earlier Chinese New Year holiday in 2020. The extended holiday due to the unfortunate outbreak of the novel coronavirus first identified in Wuhan, China also affected our sales results. January 2020 deliveries consisted of 1,493 ES6s, the Company’s 5-seater high-performance premium electric SUV, and 105 ES8s, the Company’s 7-seater high-performance premium electric SUV and its 6-seater variant. Total aggregate deliveries of the ES6 and the ES8 reached 33,511 vehicles.
“Meanwhile, our teams strive to keep certain operations running during the extended Chinese New Year holiday, including necessary services and sales and marketing efforts through various forms of online sales channels such as our NIO App and other online live streaming platforms,” concluded Mr. Li.
Steven Feng, chief financial officer of NIO, added, “Looking ahead to February, we expect a reduction in vehicle production and deliveries, compared to the months of peak sales last year, as the Chinese government postponed the return to work from Chinese New Year holiday for most businesses across the country in an effort to fight the outbreak. We will keep monitoring the situation and continue being part of the joint efforts from the government and all parties in China and across the world against the outbreak.”
