Li Auto CEO Li Xiang has confirmed that the company has no plans to expand overseas by 2025. In an interview with TechNode, Li said that the company is focused on consolidating its position in the Chinese market before expanding to other countries.
Li Auto is a Chinese electric vehicle maker that was founded in 2015. The company’s first model, the Li One, was launched in 2019. The Li One is a hybrid SUV that combines an electric motor with a gasoline engine. The Li One has been a success in China, with the company selling over 100,000 units in 2022.
Li Xiang said that Li Auto is not currently considering expanding to overseas markets because the company wants to focus on improving its products and services for the Chinese market. He said that the company is also concerned about the challenges of expanding to other countries, such as different regulations and infrastructure.
However, Li Xiang did not rule out the possibility of Li Auto expanding overseas in the future. He said that the company will “continue to monitor the global market” and “make decisions based on the best interests of the company.”
