what price in Europe for the competitor of the Tesla Model 3?

After opening reservations last month, Xpeng is formalizing base prices for its new electric sedan in four European markets. Unsurprisingly, the starting price is very close to that of the Tesla Model 3.

Launched in China just a few months ago, the Xpeng P5 is about to land on the European continent. After opened reservations in select markets last month, the Chinese brand formalizes a first list. One way to give buyers visibility on the amount they will have to pay.

A similar price to the Tesla Model 3

Without going into the details of the different options, which will be communicated later, Xpeng communicates on a base price of around 50,000 euros for the four markets where reservations are open: Denmark, the Netherlands, Norway and Sweden.

Unsurprisingly, this base rate is similar to that of the Tesla Model 3 whose, whose prices have risen in recent weeks. In the Netherlands, the Xpeng P5 is even cheaper than the Model 3, which costs 51,990 euros in its basic version.

Denmark 390,000 DDK € 52,420

Norway 380,000 NOK 51,000 euros
Sweden 550,000 NEK 57,000 euros

465 km of autonomy

Although it offers three battery configurations for the Chinese market, the manufacturer has so far only chosen one for the European market. Accumulating 66.2 kWh of capacity, it allows up to 465 km of range in the WLTP cycle. The characteristics of the engine are the same as those announced in China. Configured in traction, the P5 combines 155 kW of power and 310 Nm of torque for a sprint from 0 to 100 km / h in 7.5 seconds. On the charging side, the 11 kW system is completed by a quick connector compliant with the Combo CCS standard. A little disappointing, the peak power is limited to 70 kW.

In terms of equipment, the XPeng sedan receives a heat pump and a 3.3 kW V2L device to power other electrical devices. Added to this is the XPilot 2.5 driver assistance system, a competitor of the Tesla Autopilot, which is based on a series of cameras and sensors.

Equipped with an operating system called Smart OX, the Xpeng P5 Xmart OS combines a huge 15.6-inch center screen with 12.3-inch digital instrumentation.

Delivery dates to be specified

In addition to the formalization of these first European tariffs, the manufacturer has also opened its online configurator in Denmark, the Netherlands and Sweden. In Norway, the launch will take place in a few weeks. Customers wishing to discover the vehicle and talk to the manufacturer’s teams can also visit one of the brand’s three branches in Copenhagen, The Hague and Stockholm.

If Xpeng does not yet communicate a calendar for the European market, it is estimated that the first models will be delivered to customers by the end of the year. As for the marketing of this Xpeng P5 in France, this does not seem to be the priority at the moment …
