XPeng (NYSE: XPEV) is rolling out its Tesla FSD-like City Navigation Guided Pilot (City NGP) feature in more cities.
The XPeng P5 will receive its seventh vehicle OTA upgrade, which will make NGP functionality available in Shenzhen, according to information released today by the electric vehicle (EV) maker.
City NGP can be up to 90 percent as efficient as a human driver, easily handling dense traffic during peak commuting hours, as well as complex road conditions, XPeng said.
With access to the feature, XPeng vehicles can intelligently recognize traffic lights by lane and automatically start and stop, it said.
With the support of LiDARs, vehicles can actively avoid pedestrians and vehicles as well as roadblocks, making the smart driving experience safer, XPeng said.
On October 21, 2022, XPeng opened the City NGP feature to all P5 sedans in Guangzhou, where it is headquartered. The P5 is the first of the company's models to support the LiDAR option.
All P5 models equipped with LiDARs and featuring XPilot 3.5 software and upgrades will have access to City NGP functionality.
In cities where City NGP is available, P5 users can use NGP assisted driving on regular roads, in addition to using the feature on highways.
To better build trust in human-machine co-driving, XPeng has introduced the SR smart assisted driving environment simulation display. The City NGP has a richer center control and instrumentation SR simulation display than the highway NGP.
In announcing February delivery figures on March 1, XPeng said that the City NGP advanced driver assistance feature will be implemented in several models in several cities, including Shenzhen and Shanghai, starting in March.
The upcoming OTA upgrade for the XPeng P5 will see the Xmart OS version number upgraded to 3.4.0, which will bring more than 20 enhancements to the base experience in addition to making City NGP available in Shenzhen, the company said.
