The Chinese company Xpeng Motors (Xiaopeng) started producing electric vehicles only in 2018, but since recently it has been offering its products in Norway, and now three more countries in this region have been added to it – the Netherlands, Denmark and Sweden. From Thursday, local customers can order the new Xpeng P5 sedan in European specification, and the brand’s showrooms will appear not only in Sweden, but also in the Netherlands.
The Xpeng Motors showroom in Stockholm has been operating since last month, and the second branded showroom has just opened in the Netherlands. Visitors can see not only the Xpeng P5 and P7 sedans, but also the X2 aircraft, which the company also hopes to put on the conveyor. Two more car dealerships will be opened in the Netherlands before the end of the year, and it is possible that a similar representative office will soon appear in Denmark. From April, Xpeng’s European customers will be able to test drive the brand’s electric vehicles.
It is noteworthy that the versions of Xpeng P5 sedans delivered to Europe will be devoid of lidars, and their Xpilot active driver assistance system will only correspond to version 2.5, although in China it has already evolved further, to 3.5. A software update of the functionality of the driver’s assistants “over the air” is provided. In the base variant, the Xpeng P5 offers front-wheel drive and a 66 kWh traction battery, which in the WLTP conditional cycle allows you to drive 465 km without recharging.
