Aito, supported by tech giant Huawei, announced on February 1, 2024, that it had delivered 32,973 units in January, marking a 34.76% increase from the previous month. This surge in deliveries, including 24 days where daily deliveries exceeded a thousand units, has propelled Aito to become the top-selling new force brand in the Chinese market for the month.
The Aito Wenjie M7 led this exceptional performance with a record-breaking delivery of 31,253 new vehicles in a single month, surpassing the 30,000-unit mark for the first time since its market launch in September 2023. The cumulative orders for the Wenjie M7 have exceeded 140,000 units, highlighting the model’s strong market appeal and consumer trust in Aito’s offerings.
Notably, the Chinese Lunar New Year, traditionally a period of lower sales due to factory and retail closures, occurred in January 2023 and February 2024. The fact that Aito achieved such significant delivery numbers during a typically slow sales period further underscores the brand’s growing momentum and market acceptance.
From January 31, 2024, Aito has begun rolling out high-level OTA (Over-the-Air) updates for the M5 and the new M7 intelligent driving editions. These updates introduce advanced innovative driving capabilities that do not rely on high-precision maps for urban navigation control assistance (NCA), enhancing the vehicles’ autonomous driving features across the country. This technological advancement indicates Aito’s commitment to innovation and its collaboration with Huawei in pushing the boundaries of smart mobility solutions.
The success of Aito, especially the Wenjie M7, in the Chinese market, can be attributed to several factors. The brand’s strategic partnership with Huawei brings together Aito’s automotive expertise and Huawei’s technological prowess, offering consumers cutting-edge smart vehicles equipped with the latest in autonomous driving technology, connectivity, and entertainment features. The adoption of OTA updates for enhancing vehicle capabilities and driving experience demonstrates Aito’s focus on customer satisfaction and continuous improvement.
