On November 8, Geely announced their sales data for October. The sales volume of New Energy Vehicles in October was 7,909. In China, the government’s term “New Energy Vehicle” covers three categories: electric vehicles (EVs), plug-in electric vehicles (PHEVs), and Fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs). Geely didn’t disclose how many of the 7,909 NEVs were PHEVs and how many pure EVs.
The total October sales were 111,599, a year-on-year decrease of 20% and a month-on-month increase of about 7%. Geely delivered 112,822 vehicles.
The total sales volume was 1,033,395 vehicles from January to October, with a year-on-year increase of about 2%.

Geely disclosed these data on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, and we have to note that these are unaudited sales data in October 2021.
Although Geely achieved good sales results in October, there are still great difficulties to overcome in the future. The most significant factor restricting Geely’s development in 2021 should be the shortage of chips.
By the end of October, due to chip shortage and other related problems, Geely had more than 150,000 undelivered orders, which had exceeded Geely’s monthly sales.
Geely completed 68% of the annual sales target of 1.53 million vehicles in 2021. There are only two months left this year. If it wants to complete the task, it is almost impossible to sell another 520,000 new vehicles until the end of the year.
