Chinese electric car maker Xpeng has kickstarted its international expansion firstly in Norway.
The Chinese EV startup aims to enter more European markets in 2022.
Meanwhile Xpeng has launched its first “international” model, the G9 SUV that came to light today. The firm’s co-founder and president Henry Xia said at an auto exhibition on Friday:
“G9 is our first model to be conceived and developed from the ground up for both the international and Chinese markets, bringing our most sophisticated designs to our customers worldwide.”
The SUV is Xpeng’s fourth production model and will be the first to possess the carmaker’s latest advanced driver assistance system. The ADAS, called Xpilot 4.0, is built for urban driving.
Tге Xpilot 4.0’s hardware includes a mix of cameras, lidar, millimeter-wave radar, and a 3D visual perception network.
It’s expected that G9 is not going to launch in China until the third quarter of 2022.
