A host of new images have surfaced online of the Xpeng G9 after it made its official debut at last November’s Guangzhou Auto Show.
When Xpeng lifted the veil on its flagship SUV, it did so without showcasing its interior. However, a video shared to Weibo by Xpeng chairman He Xiaopeng has provided us with our first chance to see inside the all-electric SUV. It’s certainly intriguing.

Dominating the dashboard of the Xpeng G9 is a digital instrument cluster and two large infotainment screens that house virtually all of the SUV’s controls. These images of the interior also show two wireless charging pads in the center console, as well as a flat-bottom steering wheel, and lovely metallic Dynaudio speaker grilles on the door panels. An ambient lighting system is also visible.
Xpeng didn’t reveal much about the G9’s powertrain when it was first showcased in November. We now know that it features a pair of electric motors consisting of a 234 hp (175 kW) unit at the front axle and a 308 hp (230 kW) unit at the rear axle.
The capacity of the G9’s battery pack remains uncertain but Car News China says the SUV uses an 800-volt architecture that supports 480 kW charging, meaning 200 km (124 miles) of range can be added in just 5 minutes. It is understood that flagship variants will be able to travel over 700 km (434 miles) on a charge and hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3 seconds.
Xpeng has also equipped the G9 with its XPILOT 4.0 semi-autonomous driving system that has two LiDAR sensors, an 8 million pixel front binocular camera and 2.9 million pixel side cameras, allowing for semi-autonomous driving functions.
Pre-orders for the Xpeng G9 will open in China on August 10 with the first deliveries penciled in for September. Final pricing details have yet to be announced.
