Chinese electric vehicle maker Xpeng Inc – ADR (NYSE: XPEV) announced a milestone for its vehicle lineup on Tuesday, sending its stock higher. 

What Happened: Xpeng, which listed its shares on the NYSE in late August, said it has successfully completed production of its 10,000th P7 EV sedan from its wholly owned factory in Zhaoqing, Guangdong Province.

"Today sees us achieving the 10,000th unit production target earlier than expected. We delivered on our promise to bring high-quality smart EVs to meet our customer demand," He Xiaopeng, Xpeng's chairman and CEO, said in a statement.

It is Xpeng's second mass market model and launched in late April.
