Chinese smart EV maker XPENG today launched its two latest smart EV models for European markets: G9 flagship SUV, and the new P7 sports sedan. Both models, on show at eCar Expo in Stockholm Feb 3-5, are now available for order in Denmark, Norway, the Netherlands, and Sweden.
G9 features XPENG’s latest powertrain system, battery technology, and advanced driver assistance system (ADAS), fully complemented by a luxurious and immersive cabin experience. The new P7 – an upgraded version of P7 – combines its signature sports sedan profile with greater range, faster charging and a brand new smart cabin.
XPENG’s new models bring some of the most powerful and advanced EV technology to Europe. XPENG G9 features a new powertrain system with 800 V Silicon Carbide (SiC) platform for ultra-fast charging of up to 300 kW, allowing drivers to add up to 100 km of range in just five minutes. This makes it possible to charge the 98 kWh battery from 10 % to 80% in just 20 minutes. G9 can travel up to 570 km WLTP on a single charge (RWD Long Range), exceptional for the battery size. G9 can be fitted with an electric tow bar, for up to 1,500 kg towed load, to suit European lifestyles.
The new P7 has been optimized with the maximum charging power of up to 175 kW, delivering fast charging from 10% to 80% in only 29 minutes. P7’s range has been improved, offering up to 576 km WLTP on a single charge (RWD Long Range). An electric tailgate and soft-closing doors are introduced for even greater comfort and convenience, along with a heat pump and heated steering wheel for more relaxing winter driving in the colder regions of Europe.
XPENG G9 and P7 are both engineered to meet E-NCAP five-star safety standards and stringent EU WVTA vehicle certification.
XPENG G9 and P7 boast superior performance with their advanced systems and elegant aerodynamic profiles, and are available in all-wheel-drive or rear-wheel drive configurations.
G9’s all-wheel drive version boasts up to 551 hp with a maximum torque of 717 Nm, powering acceleration from 0–100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds. The dual-chamber air spring system provides a wide range of stiffness adjustments to help the vehicle handle complex road conditions and ensure optimal ride comfort.
For the new P7, the all-wheel drive version accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.1 seconds – outperforming even some sports car models. Brembo brakes also come as standard, giving drivers an extra level of control. All of this comes wrapped up in an exterior using XPENG’s “Dynamic Aesthetics” design language that creates a more dynamic sports silhouette.
The new P7 is offered in a stunning range of colour styles, as well as an exclusive Wing Edition featuring scissors doors.
Both models adopt hidden door handles, with extremely low drag coefficients (0.236 for P7 and 0.272 for G9), for lower power consumption and extended range.
The cabins of both vehicles use wraparound designs with high-quality finishing and materials to create a warm and comfortable environment. The ergonomically designed front seats feature heating and ventilation functions. To create an even more immersive cabin, both P7 and G9 can be configured with a Dynaudio sound system, producing up to 860 W and 2150 W respectively.
Both XPENG G9 and P7 come equipped with XPENG’s proprietary Advanced Driver Assistance System, XPILOT, offering safety, driving, and parking support through a variety of smart functions. These functions are supported by 29 sensors including high-definition millimeter-wave radars, ultrasonic sensors, surround view and high perception cameras, enabling the vehicles to safely tackle multiple driving scenarios.
The upgraded in-car Xmart OS boasts a new 3D UI that supports English, Nederlands, Dansk, Norsk, and Svenska, depending on the market. Xmart OS also comes with the improved “Hey, XPENG” voice assistant, which can distinguish complex voice commands from all four zones of the cabin. These services are supported by wide infotainment screens and a library of in-car apps to assist, inform and entertain drivers and passengers.
G9 and P7 will also support easy and seamless over-the-air (OTA) updates that allow both software and firmware to be improved during normal use.
Expanding Service and Charging Networks
Delivery of the new models will capitalize on the opening of XPENG’s new Delivery and Service Centers in the key markets: at Lørenskog in Norway (opening February 2023), Badhoevedorp in the Netherlands, Stäket, Järfälla in Sweden and Hillerød in Denmark – all opening in the Q2 2023.
XPENG will also open additional authorized service locations with dedicated partners in key European countries by the end of 2023.
XPENG customers can access over 400,000 public charging stations in Europe, by collaboration with major European third-party charging operators and mobility service providers (Plugsurfing and Shell Recharge). With its new models, XPENG will provide third party home charger and installation services together with local partners, to offer customers a seamless easy charging experience.
As a brand committed to product quality and offering better customer experiences, XPENG is proud to offer a five-year/120,000 km warranty as standard for hassle-free ownership. For customers ordering the new P7 sedan or G9 SUV between February 3 and December 31, 2023, the standard warranty will be extended to seven years/160,000 km from the date of delivery. This extended warranty is linked to the vehicle and is transferable when or if the vehicle is sold.
