Anyway, right now compared to Tesla, the batches of electric cars made in China and sent to Europe by Xpeng are still minuscule. To reach higher production levels Xpeng needs to bet heavily on cobalt-free batteries.

Fortunately in China, the Xpeng G3 and P7 already have homologated versions with cobalt-free LFP batteries made by CATL. Hopefully, sometime soon, electric cars made by Xpeng will reach Europe in much higher numbers and be completely cobalt-free.

Starting this year Xpeng and BYD will try hard to establish themselves as strong suppliers of electric cars in Europe, first in Norway, then in bigger markets like Germany and France. However, it’s not Tesla that needs to worry with the success of Xpeng or BYD, it’s the European legacy automakers that are still investing in obsolete technologies…

My interest in electric transportation is mostly political. I’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.

I likeboth the Xpeng P7 and BYD Han…

But here in Portugal, it will take long time to reach us….(i can start saving money:))

Even MG which is already selling its EV for long time in UK and Norway, stilll has no representation here…

I won’t buy a car from a company which does not hav representation here (although I might buy a used imported vehicle once there is representation here and EU warranty)

Sensible. I see people buying cars from Alibaba or whatever it is and think, wow, I must be a very conservative and old fashioned guy.

in USA, in certain states you can do almost anything….in Europe, to custom clear one of these vehicles (even if to be run in private farms for instance), can be a real pain… I would never buy something like that…. in fact I only buy things in aliexpress/alibaba up-to 10 eur per principle… if they suck, is just 10 euros thrown away…
