The CEO of XPeng Inc. predicted that the penetration rate of new energy vehicles would reach 50% in 2025.
On October 24, Xiaopeng He, CEO of XPeng Motors, said that XPeng hopes to be the first 800V high-voltage platform equipped with silicon carbide chips in mass production, aiming to achieve the endurance of 200 kilometers after charging for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, XPeng will also launch the supporting 480kW high-pressure overcharge pile.
The energy storage station designed by XPeng can meet the overcharge of 30 vehicles at the same time. In other words, XPeng will launch three schemes in terms of energy supplement, that is, 800V, 480kW overcharge and Super Energy Storage Station, respectively.
In addition, XPeng also announced its exploration progress in electrification and intelligence. It is reported that its Xpilot 2.5 accounts for 89.74%, and the activation rate of version 3.0 with high-speed NGP is 59.29%. He pointed that the intelligent-assisted driving is not automatic driving, where man-machine driving will be an inevitable choice for a long time.
It is worth noting that Xinzhou Wu, vice president of XPeng's auto-driving business, said that the urban NGP function is expected to be launched in the first half of 2022 and will be tested on some roads in the first batch of cities.
In January 2021, XPeng's NGP was officially opened to users. Users can realize automatic navigation assisted driving from point A to point B based on the set navigation route. The high-speed NGP function realized by XPeng P7 can cover most domestic expressways and some urban expressways. Apart from the functions of ACC adaptive cruise, LCC lane centering assistance, ALC automatic lane change assistance, some other functions include but not limited to automatic lane change, automatic speed limit adjustment, overtaking at night, ramping in and out.
