Just weeks after debuting the NIO ET7 electric sedan, NIO has officially broken a record for the most sales it has achieved in a single month.

NIO set a new monthly sales record in November, delivering a total of 10,878 units for a 105.6 percent year-over-year increase, according to a press release.

The deliveries show a rebound from October, when only 3,667 deliveries occured, “significantly impacted by reduction in production volume as a result of the restructuring and upgrades of manufacturing lines and the preparation of new products,” said NIO at the time.

In the same month, NIO says it sold 2,683 ES8 electric SUV units, 4,713 of the ES6 electric SUV and 3,482 of the EC6 electric sedan units.

The news comes just months after NIO and other Chinese automakers saw delivery surges in September, before NIO’s sales took a dip in sales in October amidst shifting company goals and a short break in production.

Year-to-date in 2021, NIO has delivered 80,940 vehicles total, accounting for a 120.4 percent year-over-year increase.

As of November 30, NIO’s cumulative deliveries of the ES8, ES6 and EC6 also reached 156,581 units total.

In October, NIO drivers surpassed a milestone of 3 billion kilometers of total driving distance, as well as NIO having reached 500 battery swap stations across China just days earlier, with 4 million swaps to date.

Last month, NIO opened a pilot program for a car battery-sharing program between drivers in China, in addition to announcing a new partnership between NIO and Shell to develop battery swap stations across both China and Europe.
