XPENG Motors, a frontrunner in China's smart electric vehicle market, is to launch its commercial model, the XPENG G3, on December 12, 2018.
The pure electric 5-seat compact SUV presents an impressive combination of intelligent features and configurations in its debut at the Guangzhou International Automobile Exhibition 2018, China's A-class auto show.
Tailored for the vast and fast growing tech-savvy young consumer base in China, the XPENG G3 is priced at a range between RMB200,000 to RMB280,000 before government subsidies, offering customers attractive value.
Pursuit of quality and speed
He Xiaopeng, Chairman and CEO of XPENG Motors, elaborated the company's prudent, user-centric approach to quality control, safety standards and the pace of delivery. "We made a deliberate decision to go through an extensively stringent testing and vigorous validation process to ensure the XPENG G3 offers its best to our customers," said He.
"It's a challenge for any new EV manufacturer to ramp up production and meet delivery targets. Quality has not been compromised in our pursuit of speed. It is not a race. There's no shortcut. It's about gaining consumer confidence in our products and services and building a solid reputation for the EV sector in China," he added.
XPENG Motors was the first among new EV manufacturers in China to receive the China Compulsory Certification by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology in July 2017.
About 1,000 units have been produced for temperature, altitude and CNCAP crash tests and validation, accumulating a total of 10,000,000 kilometers or 100,000 hours of road testing.
