The first 100 units of the Xpeng G3 shipped to Norway on September 24 finally arrived and 24 units were already registered today. This number will likely increase before the day ends.

The Xpeng G3 is currently on sale in Norway with a 66 kWh NCM 811 battery from CATL, a WLTP range of 451 km and a starting price of 358.000 NOK (33.759 euros).

 

 

In its domestic market, China, the Xpeng G3 is available with two NEDC range versions (460 and 520 km) and 1.492 units were sold last month. After subsidies, the starting price for the 460 km range version is 146.800 yuan (18.534 euros) and for the 520 km range version is 159.800 yuan (20.175 euros).

 

Just recently the Xpeng G3 was also homologated with a cobalt-free LFP battery from CATL, which will help to increase production and sales.

 

Xpeng G3 specs (LFP version)

  • Length: 4.450 mm
  • Wheelbase: 2.625 mm
  • Width: 1.820 mm
  • Height: 1.610 mm or 1.678 mm (with optional roof camera)
  • Total weight: 2.040 kg
  • Curb weight: 1.657 kg
  • Motor: 68 kW (rated) and 145 kW (peak)
  • Maximum speed: 170 km/h
  • Tire specifications: 215/55 R17

 

Battery capacity and range for the LFP version aren’t known yet, but we do know that with this cobalt-free battery the Xpeng G3 weighs just 30 kg more than with the NCM 811 battery.

My interest in electric transportation is mostly political. Iโ€™m tired of coups and wars for oil. My expectation is that the adoption of electric transportation will be a factor for peace and democracy all over the world.

Dear Pedro,

What are your views on Xpeng? I like their cars (specially the P7) but production capacity/sales seem on the shortside… will they be able to establish themselves as a “world class” manufacturer? Their current sales volumes seem quite small… maybe I am just overwhelmed by TM3 numbers….

As long as they can keep their profit margin high they will be like xiaomi huawei in a few years. I wouldn’t say world class tesla is world class in ev. They will become toyota or honda. They are in china I am sure chinese can make some cheap lidar for their xpilot full self driving.

most people brought into nio are just day traders flipping for profit. they don’t even have their own factories i don’t understand where the money goes to if i invest in them. i have 2 ev stocks tsla and xpev just to be safe cover both high end and low end cars. i was a little disappointed knowing they gonna sell the g3 in norway for $40000. hopefully they can lower production cost after they have their production line fine tune. they can dominate the low end ev sales if the car is around 25k.

Yes the price for the G3 in Norway is a bit disapointing (in my view)… it’s similar to the KIA e-niro which has better efficiency (i believe) and a name in the market (in Portugal Kia gives 7 year warranty on all vehicles if I remember correctly)… Ok, the interior of the Kia (and exterior) is a bit dull/boring, but Xpeng should be more like Xiaomi in their early MI-MI9 days…a cheap yet VERY GOOD product for the money… nowadays with the MI10, they were able to increase selling price easilly….

I think chinese autos are still learning how china conquered the world – i.e. with very low margin initially (not to mentioning dumping prices but this is other discussion), and then starting to increase prices as time went by and local competition had been “terminated”…they’ve done this in multiple industries..

I think it’s reasonable to assume an European price at least โ‚ฌ10.000 above prices on Chinese car trading websites for cars in this segment. There’s a tariff, Chinese prices have lower VAT and usually a โ‚ฌ3.000 incentive, transport for low numbers might be costly and the European distributor has to make some margin.

Is it safe to assume that the G3ยดs LFP battery will be cell-to-pack given the minimal increment in weigh? I assume the Model 3 LFP is also module-less. So maybe these are sharing CATL cell-to-pack technology? Interested to see those two and the BYD Han put together in a real world test like the “Bjรถrn test cycle” ๐Ÿ™‚
