When will the deliveries start?
XPeng G9’s deliveries are planned for Q3 2022. According to various sources, there are different dates. For example, the financial services company Guosheng Security did research on XPeng’s supplier Sunwoda. According to this research, the planned date of XPeng G9 deliveries in October. But a lot of Chinese media sources consolidate around August-September.
The XPeng G9 is aimed to rival the Nio ES6, Li Auto One, and Tesla Model Y. XPeng said that G9 is their first model designed for both Chinese and International markets. But they didn’t state-specific countries where the G9 will be sold. Xpeng is already present in Norway and recently opened a showroom in Sweden.
In January, XPeng delivered 12,922 EVs with 115% year-on-year growth. XPeng is upgrading its plant in Zhaoqing to maintain a higher production rate. This upgrade will allow XPeng to increase its monthly sales to 20,000 units.
