Xpeng Motors has added several new trim options to its flagship sedan P7 in the past few months to drive sales, and now the company appears to be embarking on a similar strategy with the G3i SUV.
Xpeng recently added two new trim options, the 520G+ and 520N+, to its G3i, which officially goes on sale in July for RMB 167,800 ($26,300) and RMB 187,800, respectively.
In Xpeng's model naming system, P stands for the model's highest intelligence rating, followed by E, N and G. The numbers in the names of the different models represent their NEDC range.
Xpeng announced the launch of the G3i, a variant of the G3 SUV, on July 9, with a subsidized price range of RMB 149,800 - 185,800.
The company then offered consumers two NEDC range variants, 460km and 520km, with a total of four variants - the G3i 460G priced at RMB 149,800, the G3i 460N at RMB 172,800, the G3i 520G at RMB 165,800, and the G3i 520G at RMB 185,800.
Xpeng's new G3i 520G+ and 520N+ models are identical to the others in terms of core specifications, except that they all come standard with 18-inch wheels and Michelin tires.
It's worth noting that while the 520G and 520N models are still displayed on the pre-order page of Xpeng's website, they are now shown as "out of stock" and users can no longer view their details.
This means that, at least for now, the 520G and 520N models have been replaced by higher-priced versions, which are expected to increase the average price of the SUV.
This comes after Xpeng offered more options for its higher-priced P7 sedan to expand user coverage.
Xpeng announced two new versions of the P7 without XPILOT support on September 30, lowering its starting price even further after the lithium iron phosphate version.
In early November, information on Xpeng's website showed new 670N+ and 480N+ versions of the P7 model, the first time the company has used the "+" in its model name.
Xpeng delivered a record 15,613 units in November, reaching the company's previously mentioned target of 15,000 units.
The Xpeng P7 delivered 7,839 units in November, up 187 percent year-on-year and up 30 percent from October. A total of 5,620 units of the Xpeng G3 series were delivered in November, up 54 percent from October, according to the company.
