GUANGZHOU, China, Jan. 01, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — XPeng Inc. (“XPENG” or the “Company,” NYSE: XPEV and HKEX: 9868), a leading Chinese smart electric vehicle (“Smart EV”) company, announced today the official launch of the XPENG X9 large 7-seater MPV, a flagship model built on its next-generation technology architecture SEPA2.0, for the Chinese market. The X9 series features a range of versions priced between RMB 359,800 – 419,800 with immediate deliveries.
Empowered by the cutting-edge SEPA2.0 architecture, the XPENG X9 redefines the conventional norms of MPV models in the market. With industry-leading innovations in design, intelligence, space, handling and safety, the X9 seamlessly meets the varied needs of every family member, ushering in a new era of automotive excellence. Created as an ultra-smart large 7-seater, the XPENG X9 can “transform” into a spacious 4-seater SUV with just one click, providing a driving experience more comfortable than an MPV and greater flexibility than an SUV.
“With the launch of the XPENG X9, XPENG enriches its Smart EV portfolio, appealing to the primary market needs and promoting the adoption of autonomous driving,” said He Xiaopeng, CEO and Chairman of XPENG. “Our goal is to seize growth opportunities through our leadership in Smart EV technologies, enhance organizational efficiency and secure a dominant market share.”

The XPENG X9, equipped with XPENG’s full-scenario XNGP ADAS and next-generation smart in-car operating system, XOS Tianji, revolutionizes and spearheads intelligent technology in China.
XNGP ADAS can handle multiple driving scenarios from starting the car through parking at a destination, regardless of the high-definition (HD) map coverage availability. With XNGP, XPENG has achieved the ultimate form of ADAS before fully autonomous driving is realized.
XOS Tianji offers a comprehensive suite of smart in-car functionality, transforming the intelligent cabin in the era of AI large models. It features multi-tasking on a single screen, a customizable XDock, real-time SR (surrounding reality) display, all-round safety warnings, and an AI-empowered smart voice assistant. XOS Tianji stands as a sophisticated in-car companion and automotive expert for daily use.
Luxurious, spacious interior
The XPENG X9 is designed to meet the needs of both individual and family travel, offering class-leading in-car floor space of 7.7m². Even with seven passengers on board, it can accommodate camping and sports equipment. The third-row seats can be electrically folded with a single click, expanding the boot space to an impressive 2,554L – spacious enough for 29 20″ suitcases.
Beyond its in-car hot and cold smart refrigerator, 21.4″ family infotainment system display, and zero-gravity reclining sofas, the XPENG X9 also introduces the world’s first wrap-around integrated central AC, providing a quiet and gentle breeze – all of which enable the X9 to cater to every passenger’s needs in the car.
XPENG X9 shatters the stereotype for MPVs offering a poor handling experience. Standard features include an active rear-wheel steering system and an intelligent dual-chamber air suspension system, boasting a class-leading turning radius of 5.4m – even smaller than those of compact SUVs. This exceptional maneuverability allows the XPENG X9 to drive with the agility of a smaller car, automatically adjusting suspension spring stiffness based on road conditions, ensuring the most comfortable driving experience.
Industry-leading supercharging experience
As a flagship model crafted under SEPA2.0, the XPENG X9 boasts an 800V high-voltage SiC (silicon carbide) platform and 3C battery cells, achieving an impressive maximum range of 702 km CLTC with a comprehensive energy consumption as low as 16.2 kWh per 100 km. Thanks to the 800V SiC platform, a 10-minute charge can add up to 300 km of range. The XPENG’s self-developed 800V XPower powertrain system delivers a maximum power of 370 kW, a peak torque of 640 N·m, accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in only 5.7 seconds, and generates a top speed of up to 200 km/h, providing abundant and continuous power to meet user’s driving needs.
Forged by the world’s largest mass-produced die-casting machine with 12,000 tons of clamping force, the XPENG X9 adopts the industry’s first front- and rear-integrated aluminum die-casting body structure with an impressive torsional rigidity of 46,000 N·m/deg. Also, the XPENG X9 features a 2,000 MPa safety cage and incorporates 19 ring-shaped safety designs. Its body structure is a fusion of various high-strength steels and lightweight aluminum materials, satisfying the safety standards of China, the US and Europe for rear collisions.
