Xpeng EV P7 Delivery

Xpeng Motors, a leading Chinese electric vehicle and technology company, has announced that it has begun nation-wide delivery of its new P7 super-long range, high-performance, smart EV sports sedan to customers.

This follows the receiving of the official production license on May 19, 2020, from China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology for its new own-built, wholly-owned factory, the Zhaoqing Xpeng Motors Intelligent Industrial Park, in Xpeng’s home Guangdong Province. Production of the P7 at Xpeng’s Zhaoqing plant is ramping up to meet demand, with an annual capacity of 100,000 units.

“The customer delivery of our flagship P7 intelligent EV sports sedan – our second production model – is another testimony of our integrated capability, solidifying our position as a leading player in China’s smart EV market,” said He Xiaopeng, Chairman & CEO of Xpeng Motors.

The firm claims that the delivery of the P7 is a giant leap forward in realising its ambition to create an end-to-end in-house intelligent manufacturing ecosystem and value chain, from homegrown R&D and IP creation, through design and development, to manufacturing and rollout, complemented by direct as well as authorized sales network, after-sales services and customer support. This positions Xpeng well ahead of the competition in China’s smart EV market.

The P7 is designed and built with four goals: Drive further. Charge quicker. Accelerate faster. Control smoother. It has already been very well received by the Chinese public following a series of multi-city test drives over the past couple of months.

As per Xpeng, at 706 km NEDC, the standard rear-wheel drive super-long range version of the P7 has the longest driving range among production EVs in China. And the P7’s in-house designed 3-in-1 electric drive system is the most powerful permanent magnet synchronous motor in China’s EV market, with maximum motor efficiency reaching 97.5 percent, and the world’s first to be equipped with the German Infineon 950 IGBT module.

The firm collaborated with CATL to develop the P7’s prismatic lithium NCM cells. As a result, the P7’s ultra-thin high-performance battery pack is only 110mm in height, reaching 170Wh/kg energy density to deliver close to 81kWh of power with a super-low drag coefficient of Cd0.236.

“The P7’s evolving intelligence will set it apart from other products. We are strongly committed in servicing our customers through regular OTA upgrades and quality services throughout the lifetime of their P7,” said Chairman He.
