Reliable, roomy, comfortable, eco-friendly and attractive - that's all about it, the "brainchild" of Xpeng Motors, which can already be bought or ordered in Russia. The company got its start in 2014 after the merger of investments from IDG Capital and Xiaomi.

What can we say about xpeng?

XPeng Inc. or XPeng Motors ("Xiaopeng") is a Chinese company headquartered in Guangzhou, known for producing "smart" cars, including unmanned cars. It has its own network of charging stations, provides services and car hire.

It is engaged in the development of autonomous driving systems (software, voice assistant, lidar) that significantly improve driving conditions for the driver, allowing him to enjoy the journey with minimal concentration on the devices.

Lidar systems visualise the surrounding space with the help of a laser, radar is a speed meter, shows the location of the electric car in space, fixes surrounding objects. The tandem is completed by a camera, which acts as a system of primary processing of general information.

XPeng Motors battery packs are equipped with lithium-iron-phosphate (LFP) batteries and can already be purchased in our STORE.
The lineup from Xpeng:

 XPeng G3 crossover (2018)
 XPeng P7[en] compact executive sedan (2020)
 XPeng P5 subcompact executive sedan (2021)
 SUV XPeng G9 (2022)Otherwise, the crossover does not differ from its petrol counterparts, there are even decorative inserts resembling falshpatrubki exhaust system.

The interior of the E-HS9 can hardly be called graceful, rather it is monumental, solid, and the devices in it are like in a large electronics shop.

In October 2022, a demonstration flight of XPeng X2, the brainchild of XPeng, a subsidiary of XPeng, the largest manufacturer of flying cars, was made in Dubai.

X2 is a two-seat car flying at low altitudes, with its help it is possible to bypass traffic jams in megacities, cross terrain where it is impossible to pass a standard car.

The company plans to use XPeng X2 for excursions and medical purposes.

The appearance is a little unusual for a crossover, designers were rather inspired by some amphibian to create Xpeng G3, the "stern" is standard for the "Chinese" and it will not stand out in the flow of cars.
Against the background of the general appearance the interior is impressive, it is the brightest "spot" in the whole appearance of the crossover. The dashboard in the style of the older Model S and X. A large multimedia screen, a minimum of buttons and levers.
