2,200 in April and 2,704 in May) which was the best result among new EV
manufacturers in China.

proprietary fast-charging network, which by the end of this year will count

Xpeng Motors completes production of 10,000 units of G3 SUV. Smart EV G3
tops April, May sales among China new EV makers
from XPENG Motors / June 18, 2019
June 18th 2019 - Xpeng Motors (Xpeng) today completed the production of
10,000 units of the G3 smart EV, its first production model, 188 days after
its official launch on December 12th, 2018. Xpeng is one of the few new EV
manufacturers in China to have delivered production models to customers.
“Today marks a critical milestone for Xpeng Motors, validating our
end-to-end capability, from R&D and design, through manufacturing, sales and
delivery, to charging and post-sales services. It is also an endorsement of
our ability to manage the supply chain, and our sales and distribution
strategy,” said Xpeng Motors Chairman & CEO He Xiaopeng, at a ceremony in
the Xpeng Motors Intelligent Plant in Zhengzhou.
The 10,000th unit of the G3 rolled off the production line today (see
pictures), at Xpeng Motors Intelligent Plant in Zhengzhou, which has 273
smart robots and 85% automated welding facilities.
The Xpeng G3 also topped the number of deliveries to buyers among new EV
makers in China in both April and May 2019, according to official data
released by the China Passenger Car Association (CPCA), with 2,200 and 2,704
units delivered in April and May respectively. The CPCA data showed that
Xpeng delivered a total of 7,359 units of the G3 from January to May, again
ranking it No. 1 by deliveries over the period among new EV makers in China.
The Xpeng G3 is supported by an expanding sales, post-sales and charging
infrastructure. Xpeng kicked off its “new-retail” sales program in April
2019, aiming to build over 100 direct and authorized sales stores, as well
as a network of post-sales service centers, by end 2019.
As the only Chinese EV carmaker to build and operate its own supercharging
network, Xpeng is also planning to expand its supercharging stations to 200
across 30 cities by end 2019, and 1,000 nationwide in the next 3 years,
while Xpeng customers are also connected to over 100,000 third-party
charging piles across China.
The Xpeng G3’s appeal to Chinese consumers is partly due to its ability to
navigate the challenging driving conditions in China. Data from on-the-road
G3 SUVs indicates that the auto parking success rate exceeded 70%, ACC
(Adaptive Cruise Control) adoption rate reached 30% while voice command
penetration rate surpassed 85%, and onboard navigation features are utilized
by 95% of users.
“The smart electric vehicle market in China is at a crossroads, where
companies focusing on product differentiation and quality delivery stand out
from the rest, and we see it an irreversible trend,” CEO He Xiaopeng added.
“Today sees us delivering on our promise to bring high-quality smart cars to
market, and to support them with a growing smart mobility ecosystem. We also
thank all our customers, factory workers and Xpeng employees for their
commitment and trust in us, enabling us to achieve the 10,000th unit target
earlier than expected,” said He.
