Xpeng (NYSE: XPEV) has begun deliveries of its flagship sedan, the P7i, in Europe, where the model was launched in February of this year.
Deliveries of the international version of the Xpeng P7i have officially begun in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, and the Netherlands, the Chinese electric vehicle (EV) maker announced today on Weibo.
Xpeng wishes to share more, better-working and smarter mobility products to customers around the world to experience the charm of smart driving, it said.
Xpeng didn’t provide more information about the P7i’s first deliveries in Europe, though it shared a video showing its European delivery outlets.
The company announced on February 3 that it launched its two newest EVs, the G9 flagship SUV and the new P7 sports sedan, to the European market, with ordering open in Denmark, Norway, the Netherlands and Sweden.
The new P7 was launched earlier in Europe than in China, with Xpeng only introducing the revamped version of the P7 sedan on March 10, naming it the P7i.
Xpeng announced plans at the time that deliveries of the new P7 in Europe would begin in June, with deliveries of the G9 expected to begin in September.
Today’s development means that deliveries of the P7i in Europe have been slightly delayed from the original plan.
Deliveries of the new P7 and G9 will take advantage of new delivery and service centers that Xpeng has opened in key markets: at Lørenskog in Norway, Badhoevedorp in the Netherlands, Stäket, Järfälla in Sweden and Hillerød in Denmark, it said in February said.
Xpeng said at the time that it would also open more authorized service points with dedicated partners in key European countries by the end of 2023.
The launch of the new P7 and G9 in Europe marks the resumption of Xpeng’s suspended international expansion efforts. Xpeng is ramping up that effort as deliveries improve following the launch of the G6.
On July 10, Xpeng announced that it had entered into a strategic partnership with one of Israel’s largest auto dealer groups, Freesbe, previously known as Carasso Motors, which will develop Xpeng’s sales and service network in the Middle Eastern country.
Earlier this month, in an interview with CGTN, He Xiaopeng, Xpeng’s chairman and CEO, said the company expects to enter dozens of countries, mostly developed ones, next year.
