GUANGZHOU, China–(BUSINESS WIRE)–XPeng Inc. (XPENG or the Company, NYSE: XPEV and HKEX: 9868), today unveiled its new G9 flagship smart SUV at the 19th Guangzhou International Automobile Exhibition. The fourth production model of XPENG, the G9, incorporates XPENG’s most recent state-of the-art software architecture.
Built according to international safety and environmental protection standards, the G9 boasts ultra-high intelligence, industry-leading charging capability with a bold, yet minimalist design style. It is XPENG’s first production model to include the groundbreaking X-EEA3.0 electronic and electric architecture, the latest XPILOT 4.0 advanced driving assistance system, and the new generation XPower3.0 powertrain/supercharging system.
He Xiaopeng is the CEO and Chairman of XPENG. “Our flagship smart SUV, G9, represents a new level in sophistication and a global outlook. It’s an essential part of our exploration into smarter, safer and greener mobility.
XPENG Co-founder and President Henry Xia said at Auto Guangzhou: “G9 is our first model to be conceived and developed from the ground up for both the international and Chinese markets, demonstrating our commitment to the international markets and bringing our most sophisticated designs to our customers worldwide.”
Built for global markets, compliant with global standards
The G9 is purposefully built with an international perspective, compliant with the C-NCAP and E-NCAP 5-star safety design standards, and the stringent EU WVTA vehicle certification standards.
In line with XPENG’s drive for greener, safer and more sustainable mobility, the G9 meets the requirements for EU 3R certification, an international benchmark for environmental protection requirements, with a reusability rate of over 85%, and a recyclable rate of over 95%.
Distinctive design style for international appeal
The G9 incorporates XPENG’s distinctive design characteristics with minimalist, superior and pioneering styling. This exterior design makes the G9 a powerful SUV that is well-known by XPENG and aligns with international expectations for smart cars.
On the front of the G9, you will see the instantly recognizable XPENG X Robot Face. This is complete with XPENG’s distinctive daytime running lights design. The iconic daytime running lights have been updated with new details that give the G9 an extra sharp-eyed appearance. Two LiDAR units are integrated directly into the G9’s headlights. This combines cutting-edge technology and elegant design.
The G9’s horizontal waistline runs the length of its body and divides the car longitudinally according the golden ratio. Meanwhile, G9’s rear-slanting A-pillars, short front overhang and long rear overhang, plus 21-inch wheels, all contribute to an elegant, luxurious ensemble.
G9 emphasizes high-tech fittings through its visual perception system and 5G antenna, as well as its low-wind resistance wheels. This design is in harmony with the natural vitality and curvilinear surfaces.
XPILOT 4.0 – full scenario advanced driver assistance
The G9 is XPENG’s first model equipped with XPILOT 4.0, the company’s in-house proprietary advanced driver assistance system. XPILOT 4.0 is the first vehicle to offer full-scenario smart driving, from vehicle start-up through to parking. This is a significant step towards fully autonomous driving in the future.
XPILOT 4.0 is built on a new-generation hardware platform, with 508 TOPS ECU computing power supported by two NVIDIA Drive Orin autonomous driving SoC (System-on-the-Chip) units, 8-million-pixel front-view binocular camera and 2.9-million-pixel side-view cameras (covering front, rear, left and right view), and a highly integrated and expandable domain controller. The new hardware will greatly enhance XPILOT’s perception capabilities, in addition to its market-leading multiple perception fusion platform.
X-EEA 3.0 – deep integration to deliver superior intelligence
The G9 is built on XPENG’s new proprietary X-EEA 3.0 electronic and electrical architecture, an industry-leading platform deeply integrating hardware, software and communications architecture to achieve greater simplicity, powerful performance, and high upgradable flexibility.
X-EEA 3.0 architecture consists a centralised supercomputing system and local control modules. The vehicle software suite is structured in layers: system software platform, foundation platform, and intelligent app platform. This allows for faster development and iteration, such as advanced driver assistance and voice vehicle control.
FOTA upgrade as fast as 30 mins. Gigabit Ethernet communications architecture
The G9 will be China’s first model to implement a Gigabit Ethernet communications architecture, supporting multiple communication protocols, allowing vehicles to transmit and receive big data faster. This greatly increases its support for advanced driver assist, smart cockpit, firmware OTA updates, and firmware re-upgrades.
With the X-EEA 3.0 architecture, G9 can upgrade its software faster and perform self-diagnostics. This greatly improves vehicle safety. Benefiting from its ability to synchronously upgrade multiple domain controllers, G9’s firmware OTA upgrade can be completed as fast as 30 minutes without interrupting the vehicle operation and driving function. Upgraded features will be fully implemented once the G9 is restarted. This allows for seamless OTA experience.
G9’s vehicle’s power distribution is 100% controllable across all systems, allowing accurate and efficient distribution according to the current usage scenario, greatly reducing energy consumption in powered-off, starting, and standby modes.
XPower 3.0 – ground-breaking powertrain technology and performance boost
The G9 boasts XPENG’s new-generation XPower 3.0 powertrain system with China’s first 800V high-voltage mass-production SiC platform, which is able to charge up to 200 km in range in just 5 minutes with a maximum energy efficiency of over 95%.
To fully optimize the utility of the 800V SiC platform, XPENG is also rolling out lightweight 480 kW high-voltage supercharging piles, with 670A+ flow rate capacity, IP67 protection, and safety monitoring, delivering a superior safe and convenient charging experience for customers.
