Xpeng Motors' flagship SUV, the G9, seems to be reaping a good initial reception.

The Xpeng G9 reached 22,819 pre-orders 24 hours after it opened for pre-sale, with the first pre-order coming from Shanghai, the company announced on Weibo today.

The 10 cities with the most pre-orders for the model are Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen, Chengdu, Wuhan, Chongqing, Ningbo and Suzhou, according to the company.

The majority of consumers who pre-ordered the Xpeng G9 were male, at 77 percent, according to Xpeng.

Xpeng announced on August 10 that the G9 is available for consumer pre-orders, with the official launch set for September. The model was originally unveiled at the Guangzhou auto show in late November last year.

Consumers can pay RMB 2,000 ($300) to reserve the Xpeng G9, and the deposit is refundable at any time.

Consumers who pay that deposit can get a 5,000-yuan discount on options when they finally buy the Xpeng G9, according to Xpeng's website, which does not announce specific vehicle prices.

Xpeng said the G9 is China's first production vehicle built on the 800V high-voltage SiC platform and can get a 200km range in 5 minutes of charging time, making it the world's fastest charging production vehicle.

Xpeng will begin laying out the 800V high-voltage charging system in China this year, with a maximum charging power of 480 kW and a maximum current of 670 A, it said.

The model can reach a maximum CLTC range of 702 kilometers, Xpeng said yesterday.

Xpeng G9 is the smartest in a luxury car, the most luxurious in a smart car and the fastest charging in a mass-produced car, the company's chairman and CEO He Xiaopeng said yesterday on Weibo.
