(“Li Auto” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: LI; HKEX: 2015), a leader in China’s new energy vehicle market, today announced that the Company delivered 15,034 vehicles in November 2022, achieving record-high monthly deliveries and representing a 11.5% year-over-year increase. The cumulative deliveries of Li Auto vehicles reached 236,101 as of the end of November.
“We set another monthly record with 15,034 deliveries in November. In particular, Li L9 has been the sales champion of full-size SUVs in China for two consecutive months since it commenced delivery, establishing it as a top choice for six-seat full-size family SUVs in China. Meanwhile, according to the China Insurance Automotive Safety Index evaluation results released in November, Li L9 was the first domestic full-size SUV tested for 25% frontal offset impact on both the driver and passenger sides and achieved the G rating, the highest safety rating, for both tests. Thanks to its ultra-high-strength body structure, Li L9 demonstrated class-leading performance with the ability to withstand a peak force of 116,475 Newtons in the roof strength test,” commented Yanan Shen, co-founder and president of Li Auto. “Additionally, we believe that users’ satisfaction for Li L8 has exceeded their expectations since it commenced delivery in early November. Its deliveries and Li L9’s proven success have solidified our market position in the RMB300,000 to RMB500,000 price segment.”
As of November 30, 2022, the Company had 276 retail stores in 119 cities, as well as 317 servicing centers and Li Auto-authorized body and paint shops operating in 226 cities.
