The P7 is the first L3 autonomy-ready production vehicle in the Chinese market, boasting a record-setting NEDC 706km super-long driving range and 4.3s 1-100km/h acceleration in certain configurations. Additionally, it is also the first EV worldwide powered by NVIDIA’s DRIVE AGX Xavier SoC, delivering 30 TOPS performance while consuming only 30 watts of power.

Running on Xpeng’s proprietory XPILOT 3.0 system, the P7 has the strongest autonomous driving architecture among all production vehicles in China. The car’s safety framework is designed and benchmarked to C-NCAP 5-star standards to guarantee smooth operations. The P7 is also equipped with fast charging technology which allows the car’s battery to charge from 30% to 80% in only 28 minutes.

“Today is a milestone in the 5-year history of Xpeng Motors,” said He Xiaopeng, chairman & CEO. “The P7’s launch solidifies Xpeng Motors’ leading position in China’s smart EV market. Our ability to launch the P7 in the challenging conditions of the COVID-19 crisis is a testament to the strength of our young company.”

The P7 is currently available for order in China, in 3 versions and 8 configurations, with customer deliveries starting end of June 2020. The vehicle is priced between 229,900 – 349,900 yuan ($32,462 – 49,404) post subsidies.
