2023 XPeng P7i EV Gain Updates Including Extended Range

Author: |

The redesigned P7, which has a new name, fresh styling, and increased performance, has been introduced by Xpeng in China.

Beginning with the technological upgrades, there are two alternative engine options, and entry-level models have an electric motor located at the back that produces 272 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque. The result is a car with a CLTC range of 702 km, a top speed of 200 km/h, and a 0-100 km/h acceleration time of 6.4 seconds.

The dual-motor all-wheel-drive variants, which have a combined output of 467 horsepower and 757 Nm of torque, are available to customers seeking enhanced traction and performance. The range is reduced to 610 kilometers, while the time from 0 to 100 km/h is reduced to 3.9 seconds.

The P7i has an integrated heat pump as part of its X-HP2.0 intelligent thermal management technology. According to Xpeng, it increases the vehicle's cooling capacity by 88.9%, allowing the model to run continuously at 190 km/h for 30 minutes without the fear of battery or engine overheating. Also, people who live in cold climates should anticipate a 15% boost in driving range throughout the winter.

The P7i's exterior is easily identifiable, but it has a few little changes, such as new headlights, and a new rear wing.

The color scheme has also been updated, and buyers will now have access to a new, P7i-only shade of kaitoke green in addition to an enhanced version of crescent silver.

The inside features a new steering wheel, updated door panels, a redesigned center console with exposed cup holders, and a wireless smartphone charging like to those used in Tesla vehicles. Also, buyers will discover revised upholstery and upgraded more ergonomic seats. A 20-speaker music system, a 15-inch infotainment system, and a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster connect them.

Pricing begins at $36,184 and rises to $49,215 for the top-of-the-line Wing Performance. The model is currently on order in China, with deliveries beginning later this month.
