The cheaper option has the potential to surpass American rival.
A young Chinese startup XPeng to the end of this year will release the electric SUV XPeng Identity X.
The prototype of the crossover was shown in the autumn of last year and then the few who believed that he ever gets to the pipeline. This is explained by the fact that he founded a startup XPeng people who for the automobile industry did not have the slightest relationship. Moreover, XPeng originally was not going to become an automaker, because the Chinese do not want to take on such troublesome matters as registration of land documents, the construction of the plant, finding investors, etc. But by the end of the year the first production electrocautery XPeng Identity X will be sent to buyers!
This was possible thanks to an agreement between XPeng and carmaker FAW, which is interested in this crossover and will start its production at the facilities of its subsidiary Haima. Thus, XPeng will give all the documentation partners will receive the status of the car, but, as before, will have its own automobile production. This approach, according to the Chinese, in the future will be widely distributed and will be beneficial to both the companies-developers of vehicles and companies involved in their preparation.
The length of the crossover XPeng Identity of X is 4470 mm. Approximately the same dimensions will have the main competitor XPeng Identity X – future crossover Tesla Model Y, which will be available in 2019. In order to compete with American, Chinese crossover has a number of interesting innovations. In addition to 15.6-inch “tablet” in the center pane, with which you can control all machine functions, it is worth noting the active cruise control.
The machine is equipped with an electric motor with 190 HP, and a block of lithium-ion batteries Samsung. The crossover can be as front-and all-wheel drive. If you enable all-wheel drive mode, acceleration to the first hundred takes of 5.8 s. In economic mode, front-wheel drive this exercise, the crossover will perform in 7.9 s, and the range of the yacht is about three hundred kilometers. The Chinese have not yet named the price of electrogroove, but definitely XPeng Identity X will be cheaper than its competitor Tesla Model Y.
