Benzinga – Chinese electric vehicle startups Nio, Inc. (NYSE: NIO), XPeng, Inc. (NYSE: XPEV) and Li Auto, Inc. (NASDAQ: LI) reported deliveries for March and the first quarter on Saturday.
March Deliveries: Beijing-based Li Auto’s tally for March was the highest at 20,823 units, marking the second time the company’s monthly sales crossed the 20,000-unit threshold.
“We are also very excited to see that Li Auto has captured nearly 20% market share in the RMB300,000 to RMB500,000 [$43,675-$72,792] SUV market in China, and become a brand of choice among premium family SUVs, demonstrating our product strengths and users’ widespread recognition,” said Xiang Li, chairman and CEO of Li Auto, in a news release.
Nio followed with March deliveries of 10,378 units, and XPeng stood last among the equals at 7,002 units.
XPeng said its new electrified sports sedan, launched in March exclusively for the Chinese market, has been received well and generated a strong backlog of orders.

Why It’s Important: Following a difficult year in 2022 and marred by a COVID-19-induced disruption in production, the Chinese EV market saw aggressive pricing actions. Global EV leader Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) led the pack, announcing deep price cuts for its Giga Shanghai-made Model 3 and Y vehicles.
Analysts foresee competition taking a hit as a result of Tesla’s actions. More analyses on the price cuts are expected to come once Tesla reports its global first-quarter deliveries over the weekend.
