The company also plans to release its new City NGP (Navigation Guided Pilot) feature when it receives the relevant approvals, Xpeng said.

Xpeng unveiled the G9 SUV, its fourth model, at the Guangzhou auto show on November 19 last year.

Xpeng said the G9 is the company's first vehicle designed directly for the international market and meets both Chinese and international standards in terms of vehicle safety.

It a large five-seat smart luxury SUV, it is nearly 4.9 meters long and has a wheelbase of nearly 3 meters, which is just the right size for most people, the company's chairman and CEO He Xiaopeng said on June 29.

"I am confident that this flagship product of Xpeng will be the best SUV within RMB 500,000 ($74,550)," he said.

The model has a chassis tuned by a team of top German engineers, giving a premium feel to the handling comparable to the Porsche Cayenne and a quietness comparable to the GLS Maybach, said Mr. He.
