The signing of the joint development agreement will not only accelerate the joint research and development of two B-class pure electric vehicles but also lay a solid foundation for broader and deeper strategic cooperation between both parties.

Following the announcements related to Volkswagen’s acquisition of a 4.99% stake in XPeng Motors on July 26, 2023, and December 6, 2023, as well as the framework agreement for strategic technology cooperation reached by both parties, XPeng Motors signed a platform and software strategic technology cooperation and joint development agreement with Volkswagen Group. This signifies a milestone achievement in their strategic partnership.

At the beginning of this year, Volkswagen Group (China) announced that a new Volkswagen brand car developed in cooperation with XPeng Motors will be put into production in Hefei in 2026.
