The third model after the G3 and P7 is said to be a compact sedan

Xpeng's new electric sedan as Erlkonig-erlkonig

Recently, the Chinese manufacturer Xpeng teased his new electric car. It is to be a limousine, and Xpeng showed a stylized silhouette, but not much more is known about it so far.

But now spy images of the new model appeared in the Chinese media, which were shared by Twitter user Moneyball. Probably the most interesting is the photo of the interior. It shows a landscape format display for the instruments and a large, vertical touchscreen in the center of the cockpit for infotainment.

According to the Erlkonig picture, the cockpit looks similar to that of the 4.45 meter long SUV model G3. According to Moneyball, the new model is also based on the same platform as this one and will probably belong in the compact class. In other words, it could be an Xpeng P7 for the masses. The front looks similar to the G3, but the windshield is of course less high. The picture from behind suggests a notchback with a small trunk lid for us, but maybe we're wrong.

If the G3 and the new model (maybe a G2?) Share the platform, the drive could also be taken over. That would be a front-wheel drive with 145 kW and a 66 kWh battery that brings the G3 about 500 kilometers. The unveiling of the new model is expected in April, then we will know more. Production and sales are scheduled to begin in October.

Xpeng is clearly on the growth path. Sales recently rose to a new record high of 6,000 cars per month. That is only 72,000 units per year, but production capacity is expected to increase to 400,000 cars annually with the opening of a new plant in Guangzhou.

The company is currently exporting the G3 to Norway, soon to be followed by the P7, and an expansion to other countries is apparently also planned. In China, Xpeng also expanded its fast-charging network to 866 stations – that is more stations than Tesla currently has, although thanks to the new Supercharger factory in Shanghai likely to be more soon.
