Xpeng Motors will begin taking orders in August for its upcoming electric crossover G9, with the launch scheduled this September and vehicle delivery coming soon after that, chief executive He Xiaopeng announced Wednesday via social media platform Weibo. He claimed that the five-seater sport utility vehicle will be able to accelerate to 100 kilometers per hour (62 mph) in under 4 seconds, will provide handling comparable to Porsche’s popular Cayenne Series, and be as comfortable and quiet as the Mercedes-Maybach GLS SUV. Earlier this month, rivals Nio and Li Auto released their new SUV models ES7 and L9 with starting prices of RMB 468,000 ($69,825) and RMB 459,800, respectively. [He Xiaopeng, in Chinese]
