Almost two years ago the Xpeng P7, a Chinese electric saloon called to rival the Tesla Model S, was introduced. Its arrival in Europe has been long in coming, but it already has a price in Spain: it is available from 64,000 euros.
It is not the first Xpeng model to be marketed in the Spanish market, as the brand already sold the G3 SUV (46,000 euros). And as in the case of the SUV, the one in charge of its sale and distribution in the national territory is New Energy Mobility.
The saloon is offered in two different versions. The access one, called RWD Super Long Range, has rear-wheel drive, a power of 267 CV (196 kW), and 390 Nm of maximum torque. It is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.7 seconds, and its top speed is 170 km/h. On the other hand, it mounts an 80.9 kWh battery and homologates a range of 700 kilometers. It is compatible with fast charging systems (its power is not specified), with which in 30 minutes it fills from 30% to 80% of its energy.
Above is the 4WD High Performance (72,400 euros), which has greater power and torque, reaching 430 hp and 655 Nm, and has all-wheel drive. This cuts the sprint time down to 4.3 seconds but maintains the same top speed. In addition, since it uses the same battery, its range is reduced to 560 kilometers. Its recharge capacity is identical.
The Xpeng P7 against the Tesla Model S
The arrival of the P7 in Spain occurs at a time when its most direct rival, the Tesla Model S, has restructured its range and is also offered in only two versions.
The basic one, called Model S to dry, has a range of 652 kilometers, develops 670 CV of power, accelerates from 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds, has all-wheel drive, and has a top speed of 250 km/h. For performance, it is even superior to the most powerful Xpeng 7, but its price is much higher: 105,970 euros.
On the other hand, the Model S Plaid, which is the top version, stands head and shoulders above any of the Chinese model variants. It has a three-motor propulsion system, develops 1,020 horsepower, accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.1 seconds, and has a top speed of 322 km/h. Of course, the benefits affect its range, which is 637 kilometers. As expected, its rate is also at another level: 130,970 euros.
