Xpeng P7 Review

 

The XPENG P7 is a Chinese fully electric car model which is made by Xpeng. The Xpeng started delivering  P7 in the Chinese market on 29 June 2020. The P7 was presented as a semi-concept car at the Shanghai Auto Show in April 2019, and the production version was launched in December 2019.The P7 car designer name is Rafik Ferrag.

In the Automobile market, every new car company tries to compete with the other car company and tries to give more features than its competitor brand with low price.

Same with the case of the Xpeng electric car company which is comparing its P7 car model with Tesla model 3. I know comparing every new electric car to the Tesla car model is getting pretty tedious.

But the Xpeng P7 has some considerable resemblance to the size, packaging, and features of the Tesla Model 3. The single highest-selling EV in the world. The P7 is a stylish, luxurious fully electric sedan that provides full comfort to its users.

Let’s discuss the main points of the Xpeng P7 Electric Car

Let’s start with looks. The design and style of the Xpeng P7 are remarkably similar to the Tesla Model 3. At a length of 192 inches with a 118-inch wheelbase, the P7 is seven inches longer than the Model 3, with five inches of extra wheelbase. The Xpeng P7 has a black-glass roof, frameless windows. The Xpeng P7 also has to retract door handles, exterior-mounted surround vision cameras, and other touches also echo those of the Tesla Model 3.

The Xpeng P7 has a clean shape from the outside, with not a single hard-edged line stamped into its sheet metal. The P7 has 18-inch rims. The P7 doors look so beautiful with metal interior handles, which looked like they might’ve come off a piece of high-end Scandinavian furniture.

The small Dynaudio speaker’s outer corners of the dash are similar to those in six-figure European luxury cars. On the other hand, about a quarter of the handsome perforated speaker pattern on the doors is hidden behind the edge of the dash.

The silhouette of the Xpeng P7 is sleek, and the elongated wheelbase draws the eye into that smooth profile along the side of the car. Lightbars are the new must-have design feature of any car trying to look premium, and here they stretch across both the front and back, then lead into very narrow light clusters.

The Xpeng P7 is available in 5 colors, black, silver, grey, red, and white.

The touchpad visuals draw from gaming, computer animation, graphic design, and the full equipment of Internet-connected resources to connect the mind of the driver seamlessly with the vehicle. The voice controls also lean on visuals, with a friendly animated robot icon guiding you through the control panel.

This electric car has high-tech bells and whistles with several items through which we can say that Xpeng P7 leans on convention. After you unlock the trunk, you can lift and close it manually. That’s a safety feature so you don’t accidentally hit your head. The same goes for the seatbelt, which you pull out and buckle the old-fashioned way.

All you have to do is sit down on the driver seat, put your foot on the brake, and put the car in drive. which you accomplish by flipping a small lever placed by the steering wheel where the gearshift would be on a gas mobile.

  • Dimensions

There is also a huge space for luggage as well, with a trunk of 15.5 cubic feet, which is fractionally smaller than the Nissan Leaf. With a curb weight of around 4,188 pounds, it’s not the heaviest of EVs out there in China.
