This time, the novelty is a large crossover, which is the main competitor of Model Y from Tesla Inc. and ES series from Nio Inc. According to a short press release, the new Xpeng G9 will initially accommodate the wishes of both Chinese and foreign buyers.
The G9 is known to have been built from day one in accordance with the five-star safety requirements of C-NCAP and E-NCAP, as well as the EU WVTA auto certification standards. The front of the car has the recognizable appearance of the XPeng X Robot Face with daytime running lights. In addition, XPeng has also integrated two LiDAR units into the headlights, while skillfully combining driver assistance technology with an unusual design.
It should be noted that there is still not much information on the technical equipment, but the presence of the XPilot 4.0 system assumes the use of NVIDIA Tegra processors of the Orin-X generation and a pair of lidars, which are located in the front lighting units. There is information that the system had a great potential for autonomy, including the ability to maneuver in urban environments without driver intervention.
