BEIJING — Chinese electric car start-up Xpeng's newest model will likely sell better than its most popular car to date, according to Brian Gu, the company's president and honorary vice chairman.
The company formally launched its G9 SUV on Wednesday. The car has been slated to begin deliveries in October. «We think the volume of G9 next year will exceed what we have achieved for P7, which makes it one of our top-selling vehicles,» Gu said in an interview with CNBC's Eunice Yoon this week.
The P7 was Xpeng's first sedan, launched in May 2020, which quickly outsold the company's existing G3 SUV that launched in December 2018.
The P7 ranked 10th among all new energy passenger cars — excluding SUVs — sold in China during the first eight months of this year, according to the China Passenger Car Association.Read more on cnbc.com
