Chinese new energy vehicle (NEV) brand Aito, supported by tech giant Huawei, reported a significant surge in vehicle deliveries for December, setting a new record driven by high demand for its recently launched Aito M7 model.
According to the company's recent announcement, Aito achieved a milestone by delivering 24,468 vehicles in December, marking a notable increase of 141.23% compared to the same month in 2022 and a 29.69% rise from November's figures, which stood at 18,827.
The latest addition to Aito's lineup, the Aito M7, played a prominent role in this success, contributing 20,611 units, accounting for 84% of the total deliveries. With the current model offerings limited to the M5 and M7, the Aito M5 delivered 3,857 units in December.
By the end of December, the newly introduced Aito M7 had garnered over 120,000 firm orders, with a total of 48,552 units of the model already delivered.
In the fourth quarter of 2023, Aito achieved a remarkable total of 55,995 vehicle deliveries, representing an 84% increase from the same period in the previous year. For the entire year, Aito reported delivering 94,380 vehicles.
Aito, a premium NEV brand established through a partnership between local carmaker Seres Group and Huawei in December 2021, has steadily expanded its product portfolio. After launching the Aito M5 in December 2021 and the M7 in July 2022, the brand introduced a new version of the M7 in September, followed by the flagship SUV, the Aito M9, on December 26.
The Aito M9, available in both extended-range electric vehicle (EREV) and battery electric vehicle (BEV) versions, has garnered substantial interest, with more than 30,000 firm orders within seven days of its market debut.
Looking ahead, Aito aims to enhance its delivery capacity, targeting an anticipated monthly volume exceeding 30,000 units starting in 2024.
