On Tuesday, May 19, the serial production of the new Xpeng P7 electric car started, in which corporations such as the Alibaba Group and Xiaomi Corp. invested.

The production of the innovative sedan is established at Xpeng enterprises in Zhaoqing. In the creation of Xpeng P7 invested 422 million dollars. The company’s debut model was the cross G3, which began to be delivered in March last year. Demand for it is currently low: in the first 4 months of this year, model sales amounted to 3564 units.

  However, Xpeng hopes the P7 sedan will be more successful. This is a fairly large car. The machine has a length of 4900 mm, and the wheelbase is 3000 mm. Consequently, the novelty is much larger than the Tesla Model 3, and in terms of the distance between the axes, it left behind the older Tesla Model S.

 Depending on the variation, autonomy varies between 568 – 706 km, and according to the NEDC standard, which has long been considered unrealistic and outdated. It overestimates the expected range by about a third.

 The electric sedan will be available with one electric motor at the rear or two on both axles. The electric car in the younger modification can accelerate to the first “hundred” in 6.7 seconds, and in the older – in 4.3 seconds.

 The cost of Xpeng P7 in China varies in the range of 229,900 – 339,900.

 In addition, Dyson recently unveiled an electric car that could put Tesla to shame. A feature of this electric car was to become a power reserve of 900 km.
