Tesla’s Chinese rival Model 3 was an almost instant hit. In just a few days, orders for the Xpeng P5 surpassed the 10,000 mark



Xpeng Motors has announced its new Xpeng P5 electric sedan ahead of the Shanghai Auto Show. The novelty has become the third model in the company’s line of electric vehicles (there is also a compact crossover G3 and a large sedan P7) and is positioned as a direct competitor to Tesla Model 3 in China. Pricing has not been announced, sales will only start at the end of the year, but the Xpeng P5 has already become a hit: more than 10,000 pre-orders have been placed in a week. Moreover, in order to issue it, it is enough to have only 100 yuan in your wallet or account – about 15 dollars in equivalent.

With a length of 4808 mm, the Xpeng P5 wheelbase is 2768 mm – the Tesla Model 3 is slightly more spacious inside. The declared mileage for the NEDC cycle is 600 km, the drag coefficient Cx is 0.223.

The car is equipped with the advanced (at least, the developers call it that) XPILOT 3.5 autonomous driving system, which includes two lidars (one on each side), five millimeter-wave radars, 12 ultrasonic sensors and 13 high-resolution cameras. Inside the car, there is a digital instrument panel, a 15.6-inch screen in the infotainment system, leather seats, a panoramic roof, etc.
