 The electric vehicle maker XPeng is participating in the eCar Expo in Stockholm from 29 April to 1 May, where it will show its Flying Car XPeng X2 for the first time in Europe. XPeng Aeroht, the largest flying car company in Asia and also an affiliate of XPeng, is dedicated to producing the safest electric intelligent flying car for private use. At eCar Expo, Friends Arena in Stockholm, the company will also present its P5 and P7 models.

“Innovation and development in mobility are progressing rapidly. Ten years ago, the mass adoption of electric cars would have seemed a far-fetched idea, but today, we’re working on producing commercially viable flying cars. If no one builds the future, it is still difficult to imagine. At Xpeng, we have long worked with an intelligent electric flying car – and we are very happy to finally be able to show the X2 in Sweden and Europe”, says Elvis Cheng, Managing Director of Nordic Region, XPENG.

The X2 is a two-seater eVTOL (electric vertical take-off and landing) flying car. It is equipped with an intelligent flight control system and autonomous flight capability. The X2, as the fifth generation flying car of the company, is the latest generation of flying car developed independently by XPENG AEROHT. But more excited product is the sixth generation flying car, which can travel on a road and fly in the sky. It can easily switch modes from drive to flight. It will go into mass production and delivery to customers in 2024″, said by He Xiaopeng, the Chairman of XPENG.

“As one of our strategic markets, we are willing to ensure Europe is aware of our latest developments and products. We’re looking forward to carrying out our first test flight in Europe very shortly”, said Zhao Deli, Founder & President of XPENG AEROHT.

That Sweden is one of the world’s most innovative countries, according to the Global Innovation Index, makes it interesting for XPENG AEROHT to explore the possibility of testing XPENG X2 at Skellefteå Airport.

“Initiatives like these are needed. The innovative spirit in which XPENG developed the X2 goes hand in hand with our idea of the future. If all goes well, we hope that Skellefteå Airport will be a gateway for flying electric cars. Not only in Sweden, but in the whole world”, says Henrik Littorin, Project director ELIS program at Skellefteå airport.

Earlier today, XPeng announced that it has signed a strategic cooperation agreement with the Agricultural Bank of China (ABC) Guangdong Branch to secure a credit line of up to RMB7.5 billion for its subsidiaries and affiliates in China.

The electric vehicle maker XPeng has revealed more specifications about its premium, fully electric XPENG P5, in addition to the expected starting price in Denmark, the Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden. “Online XPENG P5 configuration and reservation with a deposit will be available from today for Denmark, the Netherlands, and Sweden—this will also be available in Norway later this spring.” — XPeng added.
