The company will hold its third quarter conference call on November 23 to discuss its flagship model.

XPeng G9

XPeng Motors unveiled the G9 SUV, the company's fourth model and the first after its brand refresh, on November 19. Photos of the model already appeared in the XPeng app before it was officially unveiled.

As previously reported by yiche.com, the new model is based on the same Edward platform as XPeng's flagship sedan P7. It is expected to be priced at around CNY 300,000 (USD 47,000), and is to be equipped with a more advanced autonomous driving system, using LiDAR and support for XPILOT 4.0, yiche.com noted.

Early last month, a Weibo user said that the XPeng G9 could be officially launched in the fourth quarter of 2022.

The car's wheelbase is between 3050-3100mm, which is longer than the NIO ES8 and Li Auto's Li ONE. But the car may be less than 5 meters long, possibly slightly shorter than the latter two, according to the micro-blogger.

Its price may lie in the range of CNY 300,000 to 400,000, between the P7, which starts at CNY 229,900, and the P7 Wing edition, which costs CNY 409,900, the Weibo commenter said.
