On November 17, 2023, XPENG officially showcased the X9, its all-new flagship model built upon SEPA2.0 architecture, at Auto Guangzhou 2023, with presale pricing starting from RMB388,000. As another strategic product based on SEPA2.0, the X9 boasts XPENG’s full stack of cutting-edge smart EV technologies developed in-house. It comes with active rear-wheel steering as standard, along with a spacious, unparalleled third-row seating experience, ushering in the next generation of ultra-smart large electric 7-seater models.

On November 28, 2023, XPENG brought G9, G6 and P7i owners an even more advanced driving experience with the latest OTA updates delivered through its smart cockpit operating system, Xmart OS 4.4.0.
