XPeng is a popular Chinese Smart EV company that designs, develops, manufactures, and markets Smart EVs that appeal to the large and growing base of technology-savvy middle-class consumers.
XPeng Inc. (XPEV: NYSE, 09868: HKEX) announced that it had launched the pilot program City Navigation Guided Pilot (City NGP), making it the first Chinese auto company to launch such high-level Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) functions for complex urban driving scenarios. A cohort of Guangzhou-based XPeng P5 customers can now access City NGP through over-the-air (OTA) updates before launching to other cities, underscoring a key milestone of the Company’s world-leading autonomous driving technology.
When City NGP is activated with a set destination, the vehicle itself can perform the full range of driving tasks such as cruising at a safe distance from leading vehicles, changing lanes due to navigation or vehicle overtaking decisions, handling merging/splitting roads, getting around stationary vehicles or obstacles, and maintaining an appropriate speed throughout the driving route. It can also automatically detect and react to traffic lights, make lane change decisions and inform drivers, take left or right turns and navigate through intersections, roundabouts, viaducts and tunnels, as well as avoid obstructions like construction, pedestrians, and cyclists.
