XPeng begins deliveries of P7 Wing edition with scissor-style front doors
Chinese electric car company XPeng Motors has started delivering the P7 sedan with scissor-style front doors, about five months after the model, dubbed the P7 Wing edition, was unveiled.
XPeng unveiled the P7 Wing edition at the Guangzhou Auto Show last November, which the company says is the flagship P7 for the ultimate user.
The model is available in two versions, a 4WD performance and a rear-wheel-drive long-range version, with a suggested retail price of RMB 366,900 ($56,000) - 409,900 after subsidies.
The first owners of the P7 Wing edition include short video creators, car and tech enthusiasts, mainly aged 20-45, most of whom chose the Super Flash Green color, according to XPeng.
But following trends doesn't necessarily seem to be exclusive to young people, as the oldest of those who pre-ordered the P7 Wing edition was 66 years old, according to XPeng.
Compared to the regular P7 version, the P7 Wing edition is equipped with scissor doors in the front and a cooler way to open the doors. The model is available in three colors: Super Flash Green, Sky Grey and Sun Red.
The P7 Wing edition has a total power of 316kW and peak torque of 655Nm from the front and rear motors, and an NEDC range of 562km. Its rear-wheel-drive version has an NEDC range of 670km.
The model comes standard with XPILOT 3.0 automatic driver assistance hardware, software and upgrade services, and an 18-speaker Dynaudio theater-quality audio system.
XPeng Chairman and CEO He Xiaopeng has said that XPeng wants to play something different with smart cars to satisfy the maverick consumers.
