BEIJING, China, March 01, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Li Auto Inc. (“Li Auto” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: LI; HKEX: 2015), a leader in China’s new energy vehicle market, today announced that the Company delivered 16,620 vehicles in February 2023, up 97.5% year over year. The cumulative deliveries of Li Auto vehicles reached 289,095 as of the end of February.
“As a go-to premium SUV brand for families, we further enriched our L series and once again solidified our market position in the RMB300,000 to RMB500,000 price segment. On February 8, we officially launched Li L7, a five-seat flagship family SUV, and we are delighted to see that in the competitive RMB300,000 to RMB400,000 price segment of the five-seat SUV market, Li L7’s product strengths, embodied by its new-generation range extension system, spacious second row, and continuously evolving smart space and autonomous driving systems, have garnered widespread recognition from family users throughout China. We look forward to delivering Li L7 to its first users in early March,” commented Xiang Li, chairman and chief executive officer of Li Auto. “Meanwhile, as the latest addition to the Li L8 family, Li L8 Air has not only expanded the options available to family users but, more importantly, also strengthened Li L8’s competitiveness in the RMB300,000 to RMB400,000 six-seat SUV market. Furthermore, our six-seat flagship family SUV, Li L9, has topped the full-size SUV sales chart in China for five consecutive months since last September.”
As of February 28, 2023, the Company had 298 retail stores in 122 cities, as well as 317 servicing centers and Li Auto-authorized body and paint shops operating in 223 cities.
