NIO managed to slightly increase its electric car deliveries in May, although the company is still suffering from COVID-19 lockdowns in China.
Last month, NIO delivered 7,024 cars, which is 5% more than a year ago but still relatively far from the level of 10,000 achieved a few times in the previous months.
The overwhelming majority of NIO sales are in China, although in late 2021, the company started sales also in Norway (ES8 model).
All three SUV models offered by NIO are in the red year-over-year, although the ES6 is down only 3% and remains the most popular model. An interesting thing is that the all-new ET7 flagship sedan has become the second most popular model with 1,707 units sold.
Sales by model:
ES6 (5-seat SUV): 2,936 (down 3% year-over-year)
EC6 (coupe version of the ES6): 1,635 (down 28%)
ES8 (7- or 6-seat SUV): 746 (down 47%)
ET7: 1,707 (new)
Total: 7,024 (up 5% year-over-year)
So far this year, NIO globally sold over 37,000 electric cars.
Total: 37,866 (up 11.8% year-over-year)
