The Chinese Xpeng G6 is giving tough competition to the popular Model Y. How does it plan to outshine Tesla?

American Tesla celebrates significant success with its electric vehicles, making it a prominent benchmark for other car manufacturers. It's no coincidence that direct competition is emerging and may continue to increase for individual models, including the most popular and best-selling Model Y.

Xpeng G6 has its unique selling points 

An example of this is the new Xpeng G6, which competes head-to-head with the highly successful Model Y. The Model Y is currently not only the best-selling electric vehicle globally but has also made its way to the top positions of the best-selling cars overall, regardless of propulsion type.

The Chinese introduced the G6 model in April of this year. However, the company has now launched pre-sales, and initial figures demonstrate a resounding success. Within the first 3 days alone, Xpeng’s new electric vehicle has garnered over 25,000 reservations. It is estimated that the automaker could manufacture and sell approximately 6,000 to 8,000 units per month.

Specifications, Range, Price Xpeng G6 is the company’s fifth electric vehicle, referred to as an “ultra-smart coupe SUV.” It is a crossover comparable in size to Tesla’s Model Y, with a difference that can be measured in millimeters (4,730 × 1,920 × 1,650 mm). However, the significant differences lie in its technology and specifications.

The electric Xpeng utilizes the 800V SEPA 2.0 architecture (Smart Electric Platform Architecture) with faster charging capabilities. In just 10 minutes, you can charge it for a range of 300 km, and it offers an impressive range of up to 755 kilometers on a single charge. There are two options available: rear-wheel drive (218 kW power, 66 kWh battery) and all-wheel drive (358 kW power, 87.5 kWh battery).

The price of the Xpeng G6 is approximately 200,000 to 300,000 Chinese yuan, equivalent to roughly 32,000 to 42,000 USD. However, currently, the new model is only available in its home market of China, with no mention of export to other countries from the automaker yet. Its initial focus is to directly compete with Tesla’s Model Y.
