There’s a lot of EV stuff going on with this Chinese startup.

This is a very busy January for Chinese EV startup XPENG Motors. Let’s review what the company experienced in this month.

New Stores

Last weekend, a new direct sales and service store in Beijing was opened, adding to the family of 8 other new stores which opened in 6 cities also in January.

XPENG customers also have access to 100,000 third-party charging piles across China and can reserve them in-car or via the XPENG APP.

Many customers are not only fascinated by the smart features such as auto parking and the 360 degree rotating roof camera, but also by the infotainment features such as in-car KTV!

First Over-the-air (OTA) Upgrade 

The G3 also experienced its first OTA upgrade in January. Drivers can now locate and summon the vehicle with a press of the button on their smart key.

Answer: Not “new” but copying every aspect of Tesla as closely as a Chinese company is capable.

Xpeng is intended to be the cheaper Chinese version of Tesla for the local market. Not saying that’s necessarily a bad thing.

Another Euro point of view

Yes, agreed.

Also, according to recent but fast accumulating scientific evidence, it appears that the sun is spinning around a precise point on earth, the headquarters of Tesla in California.

lol…. perhaps true.

That’s not good, clearly the radiant light is attracting trolls from all over the planet.

Only problem is that the Chinese consumer avoids domestic brands if they can at all afford to (showing up in a Chinese brand car at a well paid job is basically social suicide) so this had better be really cheap if it wants to compete with Tesla, especially once Model Y production starts in China
