The EV maker XPeng announced Monday that delivered 11,524 vehicles in July 2022, representing a 43% increase year-over-year and a 24.65% from the previous month. The company delivered a total of 80,507 vehicles in the first seven months of 2022, a 108% increase year-over-year.
July deliveries consisted of 6,397 P7s, 3,608 P5 smart family sedans and 1,519 G3i SUVs with the cumulative deliveries reaching nearly 220,000 as of the end of July 2022.
In August, XPeng plans to begin accepting reservations for its new, flagship G9 SUV followed by an official launch in September 2022, the company said.
According to recent reports, the company made a discount of 5,000 – 10,000 yuan ($740 – $1481) for all its models in China due to the surge in production capacity and insufficient order reserves. In an interview with the local media, XPeng Motors’ PR Department answered “I don’t want you to follow”. The price reductions are scheduled to last until the last day of the month.
The company is reportedly preparing to release a new version of its sedan P7 by mid-2023 and the first pictures were exposed on the internet suggesting some interior and exterior changes.
The new XPeng P7 will feature a multi-function steering wheel similar to the G9 which adopts the design of metal buttons and rollers reducing the probability of accidental touch. The model is expected to be built on the 800V high-voltage SiC platform and will be able to add over 200kms in only 5 minutes.
