Chinese EV start-up Xpeng Motors announced that it is now taking orders of its new Xpeng P5 in four European markets.
The P5 family sedan will be sold in Norway, Sweden, the Netherlands and Denmark.
However, it does appear that the exported models will not include lidar guided Xpilot 3.5.
Instead, these export models will have Xpeng’s Xpilot 2.5 driver assistance system.
It is not clear if the lidar version will be available later or not at all.
The export batch of P5s will also come with a large panoramic sunroof and the 66-kilowatt hour battery pack giving the vehicle a 465 km range.
However, Xpeng did not provide the cost of the vehicles in the release.
The basic P5 model without lidar, the 460G, goes for around $24,977 USD in China. At the same time, their premium model, the 600P, with lidar technology, sells for approximately $35,316 USD.
Xpeng has been selling vehicles in Norway since 2020 and expanded its footprint into the Netherlands and Sweden back in February 2022.
Selling in Europe is one thing, but no Chinese-based EV company has seen massive success yet on the continent.
For instance, in December 2022 in Norway, Xpeng sold 36 vehicles while NIO sold 67. In comparison, Tesla sold 4,346 cars in that same month.
