Chinese smart electric vehicle company XPeng has made a mid-phase facelift for its G3 vehicle with optimised intelligent in-car operating system and strongest autonomous driving assistance system in its class.
In addition to its advanced XPILOT 2.5 autonomous driving assistance system, the G3i has an upgraded in-car infotainment system powered by the Snapdragon 820A auto-grade chip, as well as a full-scenario voice assistant which supports continuous dialogue and customised voice commands.
The upgraded car model, sporting a new fascia exterior design, will be delivered to the market in September 2021. Tailored for China’s tech-savvy younger generations, the G3i offers more than 50 exterior and interior colour combinations.
“As a frontrunner of the smart electric vehicle industry, we not only strive to offer our customers the benefit of the most advanced technologies, but also to create cutting-edge cool products for the younger generations in China,” said He Xiaopeng, chairmen and CEO of XPeng , during the new G3i launch event last Friday in Chengdu, China.
G3 was introduced three years ago in 2018 as the car maker’s first mass-produced model in China. It has since become the second best-selling pure electric SUV in the country’s mid-to-high-end market for more than two years.
In the first three months of this year, the G3 is number one in terms of registration numbers among A-class pure electric SUVs in China.
The G3 has received 15 major firmware OTA upgrades since its launch, adding 55 new functions as of March 31, 2021. The utilisation rate of its AI-powered voice assistant has exceeded 99%. In 2020, the G3’s auto parking function was ranked top by i-VISTA.
