Xpeng hasn’t been shy about their European ambitions and it appears the wait is almost over as they’ve announced plans to launch two new EVs on February 3.
We’ll learn details next week, but the teaser image appears to show the G9 crossover and the P7 sedan. The latter offers a high-performance variant with a dual-motor all-wheel-drive system, allowing a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 4.5 seconds, and a driving range of up to 470 km (292 miles) in the WLTP cycle. Norwegian customers will be also offered a rear-wheel drive model with up to 530 km (329 miles) of range, but it’s much slower as the dash to 62 mph (100 km/h) takes 6.9 seconds.
Xpeng previously announced plans to open four delivery and service centers in key European markets later this year. The first facility is set to open in Lørenskog, Norway next month.

It will be followed by a center in Badhoevedorp in the Netherlands. It’s slated to be completed in February and open for business in the second quarter. This is Xpeng’s most important delivery and service center as it will also serve as a training facility for technicians and staff, as well as a spare parts hub to reduce wait times for European customers.
Delivery and service centers are also set to open in Stäket, Sweden as well as Hillerød, Denmark. Xpeng said each will provide the “best customer experience possible, with a focus on pre-delivery inspections, aftersales, and repairs.” The company added that additional locations will open later this year to provide even greater coverage in these markets.
This isn’t the company’s first foray in Europe as the brand noted “Experience Stores” opened in the aforementioned countries last year. They attracted approximately 500,000 visitors and hosted 4,500 test drives.
