XPeng (NYSE: XPEV) shares are falling in premarket after the company announced its earnings, on August 23. 

The unaudited financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2022, showed that the firm managed to deliver 34,422 vehicles in Q2, an increase of 98% compared to the 17,398 delivered during the same period in 2021. Revenue came in at $1.11 billion, a 97.7% year-on-year (YoY) increase, beating estimates by $10 million. 

Meanwhile, earnings per share (EPS) were -$0.43, missing estimates by $0.10. Furthermore, for Q3, the company sees vehicle deliveries between 29,000 and 31,000 (13-20.8% increase) and revenue to come in between $0.99 billion and $1.05 billion (18.9-25.9% increase).

Accelerating growth

He Xiaopeng, Chairman and CEO of XPeng, stated that his firm is looking to produce vehicles in a new, middle, segment between $21,900 and $73,000 with an additional ramp-up of production.    

“We are accelerating the pace of new product launches to round out our offering with vehicles priced between RMB150,000 to RMB500,000. In 2023, we plan to roll out two new competitive models that will further propel rapid sales volume growth.”

It seems as if XPeng has big plans, towards which they’re marching determinately, despite the XPEV being down 58.23% year-to-date (YTD). The only certainty, as it now stands, is that the firm will be a contender in the electric vehicle (EV) markets if they continue to produce and deliver its current and future EV models.
