NIO said it delivered 2,190 SUVs and 6,316 sedans in January, without providing a breakdown of specific models.

NIO has started deliveries of the EL7 in the Netherlands, and deliveries of the SUV model in Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Norway are also about to begin.
The month's vehicle deliveries reflected a seasonal slowdown during the Chinese New Year holiday that began in mid-January, XPeng said.

Tesla plans to produce an average of nearly 20,000 vehicles a week at its Shanghai plant in February and March, with monthly production roughly reaching September levels, according to Reuters.
Tesla delivered 121,619 vehicles to Chinese consumers in the fourth quarter, essentially unchanged from 120,576 vehicles in the third quarter.
BYD's NEV sales ended a 10-month streak of growth, as the Chinese New Year holiday took its toll on sales.
