Li Auto Inc. April 2022 Delivery Update
BEIJING, May 01, 2022 (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 4,167 Li ONEs in April 2022. Cumulative deliveries of Li ONE have reached 159,971 since the vehicle’s market debut in 2019.
“The COVID-19 resurgence in the Yangtze Delta region continues to cause severe industry-wide disruptions in supply chain, logistics and production since late March. Our Changzhou manufacturing base is located in the center of the Yangtze Delta region, which is home to over 80% of our parts suppliers, especially in Shanghai and Kunshan. The COVID-19 resurgence in this area has incapacitated some suppliers in Shanghai and Kunshan. Some of them completely shut down production or delivery of their products, making it impossible for us to maintain production after exhausting our parts inventory. This materially affected our production in April, resulting in delayed deliveries for some of our users. At present, we are working with our supply chain partners to restore production capacity, aiming to shorten the delivery waiting time for Li ONE users, while meeting all pandemic prevention and containment requirements,” Yanan Shen, co-founder and president of Li Auto, commented.
As of April 30, 2022, the Company had 225 retail stores in 106 cities, as well as 292 servicing centers and Li Auto-authorized body and paint shops operating in 211 cities.
