"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 offers on-the-road performance and style to match its advanced intelligent features. With a length of 4.9m and a wheelbase of 3m, and dual-motor 4-wheel-drive, the P7 boasts sporty acceleration to 100km/h in 4 seconds, as well as a market-leading NEDC driving range of 600 km+.

Meanwhile, savvy ergonomic design provides the opulent interior space that Chinese customers desire.
