Xiaomi Auto recently required suppliers for its SU7 electric car to increase production capacity to 10,000 vehicles per month, news portal yicai.com reported on Tuesday.

The production capacity for the high-end version has been specially asked to increase, said the news portal.

As of early morning of April 2, the number of confirmed order for SU7 reached 40,000 vehicles.

In respond to the demand, Xiaomi had to change their production plan, in which the original production plan for the car was set to be surpass 3,000 units in March and reach 4,000-5,000 units in April.

The delivery cycle for the confirmed orders is between 20–31 weeks for different versions of the car, which means owners who booked for the high-end version SU7 Max are expected to receive their new car around the end of this year.

According to research reports issued by multiple institutions, deliveries of SU7 are expected to reach 60,000 to 80,000 units this year.
