The only currently serial model of the brand called G3. In June, the crossover has overcome the level of 10 000 copies per year of sales. In July, he was replaced by model year 2019 to 2020, and although not changed in appearance, but have improved technical characteristics.

A young Chinese company Xpeng Motors, engaged in the development and production of electric vehicles, stated about the agreement: the beginning of a new round of financing from a group of investors in the amount of $400 million Among invested in a startup especially marked by the global electronics giant Xiaomi Corporation, which announced itself as a strategic investor of the company Xpeng. In parallel, the car received a credit line of several billion yuan from a number of leading Chinese and international banks, including China Merchants Bank, China CITIC Bank and HSBC, which indirectly indicates the confidence of bankers in the viability of the project.

Digital tidy in Xpeng G3 12.3 inches augmented by a Central screen of 15.6 inches. There is a connection with other cars and infrastructure, V2X, autopilot, able to independently change the strip when you specify driver side (turn signal), built-in games and a retractable 360-degree camera on the roof for shooting and a heartbeat sensor for analyzing the state of the driver (depending on configuration).

While viability is based on one car. Crossover Xpeng G3 2019 model year (motor to 197 HP and 300 N•m actuator front) weighed 1585 kg, accelerates to a hundred in 8.2 s, and its battery by 47.6 kWh gave him a range of 365 km on the NEDC cycle. Model 2020 (in the collage above) was divided into subspecies. First: G3 400 with curb weight 1578 kg, with acceleration to a hundred in 8.5 with and increased battery 50.5 kWh, giving the mileage in 401 km on the NEDC.

The second option — G3 520 1637 mass in kg, acceleration to a hundred in 8.6 with a battery of 66.5 kWh and a cruising range of 520 km on the NEDC. The parameters of the motor in all cases remains the same. But to expand the capacity of the traction battery without a dramatic growth of the mass of the machine is failed by increasing the specific capacity of the battery 140 WH/kg to 180. Thanks to major partner, global supplier of lithium batteries CATL.

Next on the conveyor in the spring of 2020 should stand up electric sedan P7. A large (4.9 m) car received four-wheel drive with two electric motors, it accelerates from to a hundred in four seconds. Mileage charging promised more than 600 km on the NEDC, while for the autopilot to gradually get to the fourth level on a scale SAE (previously stated three).

Among the companies that had already invested in Xpeng Motors, there are such significant names as Alibaba and Foxconn, but Xiaomi in this series stands out, as the car company has partnered with the electronic giant in the development of communication technologies in smart cars and smartphones, as well as machines and so-called Internet of things. The flooding of the market of electric models, especially in China, like to stand out a giant battery or heavy-duty motors hard. The more that we are talking about popular and affordable electric cars: G3 400 143 800 yuan (1.3 million rubles), and 520 G3 — from 159 800 yuan (1.45 million rubles). But electronics still possible to surprise.

We already know that the base Corvette Stingray in the U.S. will cost from $58 900, but shipping will raise the price to $59 995 (3,83 million). The predecessor of the Corvette C7 has requested $55 900 (3,57 million).

Buyers targhee Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, hoping to obtain their machines by the end of this year, will have to wait until February 2020. This was officially announced by the press Secretary Chevy Chris Bonelli at the conference in Detroit. According to him, the delay has led a 40-day workers ‘ strike, which began on 16 September on the American GM sites, including collecting the Corvette plant in Bowling Green. The protest action ended with the victory of the United trade Union of workers of automotive industry (UAW), who sought the higher wages and benefits. However, the effects of downtime will be felt for some time.

It is not clear how the strike will affect the launch of the Roadster C8 Corvette Convertible. Since “went” the whole production schedule, by the first quarter of 2020 version with folding roof may not make it.

According to estimates by consulting firm LMC Automotive, because of the strike, GM has nemovitosti 300 000 cars, and only a quarter of this amount can be compensated. Now to speed up production and catch up there is no way, because the factories work around the clock. But to worry about new Chevrolet protests do not: the UAW and GM entered into an agreement for four years. The Union will now proceed to deal with Ford using the GM contract as a template.
