Recently, Xpeng G9 model covered with black and white stripes was spotted on a street in Guangzhou.
The Xpeng G9 looks like an SUV version of the Xpeng P7 sedan. At the front, it features the signature full-width, ultra-slim DRL strip on the top, separate headlights, which integrate two LiDAR sensors, a smooth mask in place of a traditional radiator grille, a mesh-pattern lower air intake, and an elegantly designed bonnet. The taller version adds some composed personality while reducing the sharpness of Xpeng P7. It has neatly designed door panels and five-spoke 21-inch alloy wheels. The Xpeng G9 also draws on P7’s interior design. But the spy shots did not reveal much about the inside.
The G9 sits upon new-generation X-EEA 3.0 architecture with China’s first 800V high-voltage mass-production SiC platform, which is able to charge up to 200 km in range in just 5 minutes with a maximum energy efficiency of more than 95%. As a leader among the new car-making forces, Xpeng G9 boasts two NVIDIA Orin X chips and supports XPILOT 4.0—the first to deliver full-scenario assisted smart driving. The new semi-autonomous advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) has two LiDARs situated directly in the headlights, a suite of cameras, and 508 TOPS ECU computational performance.
It is Xpeng’s first model for both domestic and international markets, aiming at Tesla Model Y. The G9 follows the requirements of international safety standards. The new vehicle conforms with the C-NCAP and E-NCAP five star safety design standards and the strict European crash safety and vehicle certification standards.
G9 flagship SUV debuted at the 19th Guangzhou International Automobile Exhibition. Judging from the leaked information, it incorporates the company’s latest software architecture and hardware platform. The price of each unit is expected to be above 300,000 yuan, higher than the P7 sedan.
