On June 11th, Chinese electric vehicle manufacturer Xpeng held a launch event at the Grand Egyptian Museum in Cairo to introduce its G9 SUV and P7 sedan to the Egyptian market. The company announced that these two models will begin deliveries to Egyptian consumers later this month. Unlike the many countries announcing tariffs on Chinese imports, Egypt has a zero-tariff policy for Chinese EV vehicles.

Raya Auto, a subsidiary of Raya Holding, has been appointed as Xpeng’s exclusive distributor and partner in Egypt. Raya Auto plans to provide after-sales support for Xpeng owners in the Egyptian market by ensuring quality standards and delivering a customer experience. Many would-be buyers are concerned about after-sales support for Chinese EVs, so the partnership with Raya Auto as a local provider could allay these concerns.

As one of the first Chinese pure electric vehicle brands to venture into the African market, Xpeng aims to establish a new benchmark for EVs in Egypt. With its strengths in areas like intelligent driving, fast charging, and OTA updates, the Xpeng G9 and P7 are a solid choice to lead Egypt’s transition towards vehicle electrification and sustainable mobility. It is noteworthy that Xpeng chose the G9 and P7 in its recent launch in Germany.

“We are proud to bring Xpeng’s advanced, environmentally-friendly EV technologies to Egyptian consumers,” said Wang Ke, Xpeng’s General Manager for the Middle East region. “We are confident in the Egyptian market’s immense opportunities and look forward to achieving success here.”

According to Statista, Egypt is “experiencing a rapid growth in the electric vehicle market, driven by government incentives and a growing awareness of environmental sustainability.” So Xpeng’s entry into the market helps spur further growth in the sector.

Mohamed El Naggar, the CEO of Raya Auto, emphasized the necessity of Egypt’s automotive industry transitioning to electrification. “By delivering a zero-emission, smart mobility experience, we can help build a greener future for the next generation,” he said.

Earlier this year, Xpeng announced expansion plans in Europe, and just last month, revealed it will begin selling vehicles in the Australian market. The Chinese electric vehicle manufacturer stated its international expansion is gathering pace, with breakthroughs being made across regional markets. Xpeng aims to establish a presence in key regions like Europe, ASEAN, the Middle East, Latin America, and Oceania.
