Chinese electric vehicle (EV) maker Nio (NYSE: NIO ) reported worse-than-expected Q4 results today. Still, shares trade about 1% higher in premarket Wednesday.

Nio reported an adjusted loss per share of 3.07 yuan ($1 = CNY6.8703), worse than the expected loss of 1.93 yuan per share, as total operating expenses surged to 7.36 billion yuan. Revenue increased by 62% year-over-year to 16.06B yuan ($2.34B), again missing the 17.1B yuan consensus.

"In 2022, we made positive strides in the research and development of core technologies and competitive products, infrastructure deployment and global market expansion, laying a solid foundation for the Company's long-term growth," said William Bin Li, founder, chairman, and chief executive officer of NIO.

Total deliveries stood at 40,052 EV units, representing a YoY increase of 60%. The EV business said it generated 14.76B yuan from vehicle sales.

For this quarter, the company expects to deliver between 31,000 and 33,000 EV units, representing an increase of approximately 20.3% to 28.1% from the same quarter of 2022. Revenues are seen between 10.93B yuan and 11.54B yuan.

"2022 was a year of decisive investments and accelerated global market entry for NIO," added Steven Wei Feng, NIO's chief financial officer. "In 2023, we will focus on improving our execution efficiency, and work in an agile and efficient mode to embrace the competition in the global electric vehicle market in the long run."
