NIO Inc., a leading company in the premium smart electric vehicle market in China, announced its August 2021 delivery results.
NIO delivered 5,880 vehicles in August 2021, representing a 48.3% year-over-year growth. While the Company’s new order reached an all-time high in August driven by the increasing demand, the vehicle production, especially the manufacturing of the ES6 and EC6, was materially disrupted by supply chain constraints resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic in certain areas in China and Malaysia.
The deliveries consisted of 1,738 ES8s, the Company’s six-seater or seven-seater flagship premium smart electric SUV, 2,342 ES6s, the Company’s five-seater high-performance premium smart electric SUV, and 1,800 EC6s, the Company’s five-seater premium smart electric coupe SUV. As of August 31, 2021, cumulative deliveries of the ES8, ES6 and EC6 reached 131,408 vehicles.
In light of the continued uncertainty and volatility of semiconductor supply, the company adjusted the vehicle production and expects to deliver approximately 22,500 to 23,500 vehicles in the third quarter of 2021, revised from the previous outlook of 23,000 to 25,000 vehicles.
