The Company has already completed 88% of its annual target of 1.32 million units. In view of the peak season at the end of the year and the sales promotion of the car companies, the Company is expected to be quite certain to achieve the annual target. Main Models Display Steady Performance In terms of specific models: 1) The total sales volume of Emgrand and BoYue was close to 50,000 units, displaying steady performance. Specifically, Geely Auto sold 23,407 units of the Emgrand and 26,136 units of the Bo Yue. The sales volume of the both exceeded 20,000 units for four consecutive months, ranking the first echelon in the market segment. 2) Binyue continued its strong momentum, with more than 10,000 units sold for six consecutive months and 15,556 units contributed in November. 3) The Lynk & Co brand sold a total of 22,798 units in November, a sharp increase of approximately 61% yoy and an increase of approximately 4% mom. In the first 11 months of 2020, Lynk & Co’s cumulative sales volume reached 150,603 units, up by 28.4% yoy. The increase was mainly contributed by the Lynk & Co 03 and the new models 05 and 06. Specifically, the sales volume of the Lynk & Co 03 exceeded 7,000 units for three consecutive months. We think this shows that the Company’s high-end sub-brand strategy initially achieved success, and the rising trend of Lynk & Co is further highlighted.
