The robust sales growth was partly thanks to the automaker's efforts to raise its fleet sales by leveraging the battery swap capability and the car-battery seperation purchase policy of its battery swappable vehicle models. Livan Automotive, its subsidiary jointly owned with Geely Auto, has secured mid-/long-term batch vehicle orders by signing strategic agreements with Wuchan Zhongda Yuantong Industrial Corporation and Cao Cao Mobility, the mobility service platform backed by Geely.
