Xpeng to launch the X9 electric van in China

Xpeng will be the next Chinese manufacturer to launch an electric van on the domestic market from the end of this year. This will bear the model designation Xpeng X9 and is to go on sale later this year.

The first undisguised pictures and technical key data have now emerged from the registration application at the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT). According to these, the Xpeng X9 is just under 5.30 metres long, with a wheelbase of 3.16 metres. The minivan thus offers enough space for the planned three rows of seats with a total of six to seven seats.

The electric van comes in a choice of two versions with 235 kW front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive with an additional 135 kW engine at the rear. One of the single-engine versions will use LFP cells from Eve Energy, while the second front-wheel-drive model and the all-wheel-drive variant will use NMC cells from CALB. According to earlier reports, the range is up to 800 kilometres.

According to the Chinese portal Car News China, the electric car will also be equipped with a lidar sensor in the front bumper. This is according to previously published prototype images. The X9 is expected to hit the streets later this year and will be Xpeng’s seventh model and the first in the new X series. Xpeng’s previous models fall under the P series for sedans and G series for SUVs.

However, it is unclear whether the X9 will also come to Europe. So far, the company has not commented on whether the electric van will be sold outside China at all. Only a few days ago it became known that the Chinese manufacturer would be launching in Germany and would offer the P7 and G9 there from next year. The Chinese manufacturer is already represented in Denmark, Norway, the Netherlands and Sweden.

That's a station wagon not a van!
