HUAWEI DELAYS DELIVERIES DUE TO TOO MANY ORDERS
Offered from 246,800 yuan, or € 31,543 after conversion , the Cyrus SF5 quickly found a buyer. Just two days after pre-orders opened on April 20, Huawei was already registering 3,000 orders . First scheduled for May 2021, Huawei was forced to postpone the first deliveries of the Cyrus SF5 , due to strong demand from buyers. The manufacturer has therefore confirmed that the first copies will be shipped in June.
Deliveries will be made gradually, in small batches of cars. A spokesperson for the Shenzhen firm said the manufacturer will increase production capacity to meet growing customer demand . It should be noted that the Cyrus SF5 is currently reserved for the Chinese market. Nothing says that it will one day be marketed in other markets.
