Market-leading autonomous driving architecture
The Xpeng P7 has the strongest autonomous driving architecture among production vehicles in China. Powered by NVIDIA's DRIVE Xavier, the P7 operates both the XPILOT3.0 and XPILOT2.0 systems concurrently to provide complete redundancy. The XPILOT3.0 reaches high levels of Functional Safety to offer guaranteed stability and security. As the foundation of the Xpeng P7s technology, the safety framework is designed and benchmarked to C-NCAP 5-star standards.
The P7’s multiple front-facing, side and rear-facing cameras cover a 180°-degree+ field of view, following tight curves and recognizing vehicles cutting in at close quarters. The P7 is equipped with the industry’s first new-generation forward-looking millimeter wave radar sensors, with detection distance over 200 meters, offering market-leading accuracy and angle of view, effectively penetrating rain, fog, haze to perceive surroundings in reduced visibility conditions. Four more high-performance millimeter wave radars are positioned at each corner of the P7 – an industry-leading configuration.
The P7’s lane-level positioning function is backed by AutoNavi’s high-definition high-precision maps with high-level accuracy. The GPS/RTK/IMU positioning hardware allows positioning accuracy to the centimeter level, or less than 0.3% thanks to real-time positioning map construction technology (SLAM). These complementary features effectively enhance the stability and safety of the P7’s autonomous driving function on overpasses, in tunnels or under bad weather conditions. Coupled with the precise control capabilities brought by Bosch iBooster, the P7 performs a suite of advanced ADAS functions, including navigation-guided pilot (NGP) for highways, traffic light recognition assistance and the first production model to feature memory parking for car parks.
Superior style and support
As well as high technology, the P7 boasts superior styling and ergonomic features designed to enrich and enhance the driving experience. The bodywork is crafted with an elegant minimalist profile that lowers air resistance to a market-leading Cd0.236, delivering longer range and a quieter, smoother ride.
The intelligent cockpit is designed to interact with driver and passengers through voice commands, infotainment, and a concert hall-standard 600w Dynaudio surround-sound audio environment. A panoramic glass roof, frameless doors, and a low-profile console offer wide-angle views in all directions. Nappa leather styling is available for that extra touch of luxury.
The P7 will be available through Xpeng’s growing sales network, already some 113 outlets across 57 cities, and its service network of 73 stores in 52 cities. Supercharging stations for the P7 have already reached 164 contracted and signed units across 35 cities, while its supporting 3rd-party charging pile networks number some 200,000+ units across China.
“Our philosophy of end-to-end closed-loop R&D is what sets us apart among China’s intelligent EV manufacturers,” Chairman He concluded. “Regular OTA upgrades will ensure that the P7 continues to grow and improve as we do.”
The Xpeng P7 is immediately available in China in various configurations, starting from RMB 229,900 – 349,900 (US$32,462 – 49,404) post subsidies.
4WD High Performance (4.3s 0-100km/h acceleration): RMB 339,900 – 349,900
