China’s XPeng has completed its 10,000th P7 production target earlier than expected. The 10,000th P7 rolled off the production line from Xpeng’s self-built, wholly-owned factory in Zhaoqing, Guangdong Province on Oct 20th.
The Zhaoqing plant, birthplace of the P7, was built over a period of 15 months. The factory received the official production license from China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology on May 19th, 2020 and completed the production of 10,000 P7s within 160 days, a record among new EV markers in China.
At a ceremony at the factory, He Xiaopeng, Chairman and CEO of XPeng, said: “Today sees us achieving the 10,000th unit production target earlier than expected. We delivered on our promise to bring high-quality smart EVs to meet our customer demand.”
CEO Xiaopeng added: “The Smart EV market in China is at a crossroads, where companies focusing on differentiated products and quality services stand out from the rest, and we see it an irreversible trend.”
XPeng is headquartered in Guangzhou, China, with offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Silicon Valley, and San Diego in the U.S. The company’s Smart EVs are manufactured at plants in Zhaoqing and Zhengzhou, located in Guangdong and Henan provinces, respectively.
