The XPeng P7 and BYD Han EV are two popular models, what are their similarities and differences?
BYD Han guide price 22.98 ~ 279,500, wheelbase 2920mm, length 4980mm; two-wheel drive version NEDC range 605km, power 163kW, maximum torque 330N-m; four-wheel drive version NEDC range 550km, power 363kW, maximum torque 680N-m, all equipped with BYD lithium iron phosphate battery
The four versions of P7 also make the price range is large enough, 22.99~40.99 million, a full span of 180,000, can be said to be rich and frugal. Basic body dimensions wheelbase 2998mm, 4880mm long; two-drive power 196kW, maximum torque 390N-m; NEDC range is divided into 480km (lithium iron phosphate), 586km, 670km, 706km (ternary lithium); four-drive power 316kW, maximum torque 655N-m, NEDC 562km.
The P7 has a larger wheelbase, more power in 2WD, and better NEDC scores in the ultra-long range version; the Han has a larger and wider body and better power in the 4WD version. So if you care about range, the P7 long range version’s 706 score can basically kill most of the models on the market; if you care about ultimate performance, then Han’s 4WD version might be worth a try. Most versions of these two cars have more than enough basic configuration to meet daily use, so you can choose the right version according to your economic strength.
Although the basic parameters of these two cars are very similar, when we get to their styling and technology configuration, we can also immediately understand that there are still obvious differences in the product positioning of Han and P7, which can be confirmed by the copy on their respective official websites.
The luxurious Han
The description of Han in BYD’s official website is “luxury benchmark” and “luxury intelligent flagship flight class”, which basically revolves around the flagship’s advanced positioning.
Young and intelligent P7
In the official website, we can see that the P7 product page spends a lot of time on the intelligent platform and performance enhancement. The SEPA platform adopted uses an in-vehicle neural network and a dual-engine processor, which improves the information transmission rate by 200 times compared to traditional cars and increases the arithmetic power of the information security module by 8 times. Nearly 30 sensors throughout the car (14 cameras + 5 millimeter wave radar + 12 ultrasonic radar) paired with computing platforms from Nvidia Tegra and Xavier to Driver PX and Orin, these industry-leading hardware parameters demonstrate XPeng’s goal to be a pioneer of intelligent electric vehicles.
