Xpeng Motors unveiled its new production model, the P7 intelligent electric coupe, during its debut at Auto Shanghai 2019.
The P7 four-door coupe redefines expectations for a production model in China’s EV marketplace, with its 4s-to-100km/h acceleration, its high onboard intelligence running on the dual-chip SEPA (Smart Electric Platform Architecture) platform, and its elegant design, which combines a coupe’s flair with a 3m wheelbase and generous interior space.
A second-generation smart car, the P7 is built on the SEPA hardware foundation, which combines the NVIDIA DRIVE Xavier, the world’s most advanced system-on-a-chip (SoC) for autonomous driving, with Qualcomm’s top-of-the-line automotive processor, the Qualcomm SnapdragonTM 820A. This scalable, future-proofed hardware architecture supports Xpeng’s XPILOT 3.0 autonomous driving system, enabling progressive implementation of Level 3 autonomous driving. The XPILOT 3.0 is tailored for China’s road conditions, with features adapted to often congested Chinese cities, cruise control and lane selection for highways, and automatic parking in most-used parking spaces at journey’s end.
The P7’s other advanced features include the fusion-based perception for Xpeng’s user interface (XUI), which interacts with the driver through voice, touch, and even facial cues through emotional recognition, allied to deep learning capabilities that record and learn from drivers’ habits, preferences, and even moods.
Delivery of the P7 is targeted for Q2 2020.
