Chinese electric vehicle and technology company Xpeng Motors announced today that it has begun nationwide delivery of its battery-powered coupé Xpeng P7.
The delivery service is expected to fulfill Xpeng’s end-to-end in-house intelligent manufacturing ecosystem and value chain, which includes homegrown R&D and IP creation, self-design and manufacturing, sales network and after-sales services.
“The customer delivery of our flagship P7 intelligent EV sports sedan, our second production model, is another testimony of our integrated capability,” Xpeng Chairman and CEO He Xiaopeng said. “It solidifies our position as a leading player in China’s smart EV market.”
With an electric range of 706 kilometers, under the New European Driving Cycle conditions on a full charge, which is higher than a Tesla Model 3, the rear-wheel drive super-long range version of Xpeng P7 is said to have the longest driving range among Chinese electric vehicles.
Moreover, the self-designed 3-in-1 electric drive system of Xpeng P7 is reportedly to be the most powerful permanent magnet synchronous motor in China’s EV market, with a 97.5 percent maximum motor efficiency. The company also said the P7 is the first vehicle equipped with the German Infineon 950 IGBT module in the world.
“The P7’s evolving intelligence will set it apart from other products,” CEO He said. “We are strongly committed in servicing our customers through regular OTA upgrades and quality services throughout the lifetime of their P7.”
Xpeng P7 was produced at Zhaoqing Xpeng Motors Intelligent Industrial Park, a wholly-owned factory based in Guangdong. The company received the official production license of the plant from China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology on May 19.
With 99 experience centers, 64 service centers and 27 sales outlets across 57 cities in China, Xpeng is expending its sales and service network. It has 199 supercharging stations across 61 cities in China, while third-party charging pile networks are also available.
