“The first European-spec super-long-range Xpeng G3 intelligent SUVs formally left for Norway today, which made us so proud. It indicates that Xpeng Motors has made headway in various links such as product R&D, intelligent manufacturing and market expansion, and its products started to be tested by overseas consumers,” said Xia Heng, co-founder and president of Xpeng Motors.

The Xpeng G3i, an enhanced version of the Xpeng's first mass-produced model—the G3, was launched at this year's Chengdu Motor Show. The startup revealed that it began selling the G3is with NEDC-rated range of 520km in Norway from June 2020, with prices starting at 350,000kr (250,580 yuan).
Compared to the version sold in China, some adjustments are made over the exported G3is based on Norwegian market characteristics to meet local regulations and standards. The European-spec version still retains the super AVP (automated valet parking) function, which can greatly facilitate Norwegian users in parking vehicles with a pilot assist driving system composed of 20 sensors including ultrasonic radars, high-definition cameras and millimeter-wave radars.
In addition, the exported G3i will offer touchless smart interaction experience to European consumers by virtue of the Xmart OS that voice recognition of English.
The Guangzhou-based EV manufacturer will partner with Zero Emission Mobility AS (ZEM), a Norway's automobile dealer, to carry out marketing business and offer after-sale service to local consumers.
