Shares of Li Auto Inc. /zigman2/quotes/219811686/composite LI -2.54% dropped 6.3% in premarket trading Monday, after the China-based electric vehicle maker reported a second-quarter net loss that nearly tripled, revenue that fell well short of expectations and provided a downbeat third-quarter outlook, citing "numerous pandemic-related challenges."

Excluding nonrecurring items, the adjusted loss was RMB183.4 million. The FactSet consensus was for a per-ADS loss of RMB0.17. Revenue grew 73.3% to RMB8.73 ($1.30 billion), but missed the FactSet consensus of $9.49 billion. Deliveries jumped 63.2% to 28.687 vehicles. Gross margin improved to 21.5% from 18.9%, while free cash flow fell 54.0% to RMB451.7 million ($67.4 million). For the third quarter, the company expects deliveries of 27,000 to 29,000 EVs and total revenue of RMB8.96 billion to RMB9.56 billion, while the FactSet revenue consensus is RMB14.26 billion.
