The Chinese car manufacturer Xpeng will delight the Dutch car market with its presence. In 2022, the manufacturer of electric cars in the Netherlands will launch its first models on the market.

In 2020, the Chinese manufacturer Xpeng indicated that it has major European ambitions. Xpeng is now active in Norway and will continue its European expansion drive in 2022. The brand will expand its sphere of influence next year to Sweden, Denmark and … the Netherlands!

Xpeng intends to open an Xpeng Experience Center in Amsterdam, among other places, where the cars of the manufacturer can be ‘experienced’. Xpeng Motors was founded about 6 years ago by two former board members of the Chinese car manufacturer GAC Group. In Norway, Xpeng currently sells the G3 and the P7. The Xpeng G3, which was recently facelifted in China, is a 4.45 meter long electric crossover with a 55 kWh battery that allows the car to cover about 460 kilometers according to the NEDC cycle. There is also a variant that can travel 520 kilometers thanks to a 66 kWh battery.

Xpeng P7

The P7 is a 4.88 meter long electric sedan that will eventually receive this P5. The Xpeng P7 is in any case also on the roll for the Netherlands. The electric sedan has an 80 kWh battery and in the best case scenario has a range of 550 kilometers according to the WLTP cycle. That driving range belongs to the 267 hp Super Long Range version with rear-wheel drive. This Chinese sedan zooms to 100 km/h in 6.9 seconds. There will also be a four-wheel drive, sportier variant that, thanks to two together 430 hp electric motors, takes only 4.5 seconds for the 0-100 sprint, but which comes less far with a WLTP range of 470 kilometers. The Xpeng P7 has a wheelbase of almost 3 meters and swallows 440 liters of luggage. In the interior is in both versions an almost 15 inch measuring display. The P7 – of which there is even an edition with butterfly doors (photo 8) – has a starting price in Norway of about €45,000.

More information about Xpeng and his Dutch plans will be announced next year. The Chinese brands are now increasingly finding their way to Europe. Besides Polestar we now know brands such as MG, Aiways, Lynk & Co, Seres and Maxus and Hongqi, BYD, NIO and Byton also have big European plans.
