It will be sold in China at a price of around 50,000 euros at the exchange rate
China wants to stand up to Tesla, and Xpeng is one of the main weapons it needs to achieve this. Xiaopeng Motors, a Chinese company with less than ten years of existence, launched the X9 in its home country, a luxury electric minivan with more than 500 hp.
Although there is no official information about its possible arrival in Spain, it is worth knowing Xpeng’s proposal for electric minivans. The company began to expand throughout Europe and maybe it won’t be too far before we see their cars on our roads.
The Xpeng X9 was launched at the Guanghzou Motor Show a few days ago. This is the company’s first electric family car, a large minivan. 5.29 meters tall, 1.99 meters wide and 1.78 meters high. Despite these large dimensions, the aerodynamic coefficient is brutal: it has a cx of 0.227. It has a wheelbase of 3.16 meters and has seven seats spread across three rows. It is also possible to adopt a 2 + 2 configuration for the seats and increase the size of the trunk.
But let’s talk about its technology. Battery configurations come in two capacities: 84.5 and 101.5 kWh. In the latter case, the company promises up to 702 kilometers of autonomy, yes, under the Chinese homologation cycle (more optimistic than the European one).
The engine is a configuration with 235 kW (320 HP). If we don’t have enough, it is possible to equip it with a second 135 kW (184 HP) motor. The combined power is 504 CV a barbaric figure considering we are talking about a family vehicle.
Inside, we’re looking at a beast with LEDs, an integrated 21-inch television, a large central screen, ADA systems, wireless chargers, and more. A technology deployment to complete the set.
The price in China for this car is 49,900 euros at the exchange rate, 388,000 yuan. A number that seems to be far from what we see in the proposal that sets foot in Europe.
