As always in China, the authorities reveal the first images and information before the manufacturers. Here is the Xpeng X9 electric minivan, ready to appeal to wealthy families.
The Xpeng styling details of this new kind of minivan. New, because in China most high-end minivans are more or less directly inspired by the Buick GL8 or Toyota Alphard.
The In the world of minivans, it will also be an exception with its inclined rear hatch. In any case, it renews the Xpeng design with tighter lines.
When we talk about minivans, don’t imagine a Scenic, Picasso or Touran. In China, the larger format is required: 5293 mm long, 1988 mm wide, 1785 mm high and a wheelbase of 3160 mm close to that of a Mercedes S-Class. The space on board therefore promises to be generous, but you will still have to wait to discover the features concocted by Xpeng to appeal to families. The manufacturer is in fact convinced that the segment is set to grow in the years to come.
Still no figures for batteries or autonomy. Given the size of the machine, the capacity should be around (or above) 100 kWh. Two engine versions will be offered: 235 kW in propulsion, or 135 + 235 kW in 4-wheel drive.
The presentation of the vehicle is expected at the Guangzhou show in November.
