According to data released by the company, Xpeng delivered a total of 13,690 vehicles in August 2023, representing the highest monthly delivery figure since June 2022 when the company achieved a total of 15,295 units. This robust performance signifies a year-on-year increase of 42.93 percent and a substantial 24.36 percent rise compared to July, marking the seventh consecutive month of sequential growth.
The Xpeng G6, a key model in the company's lineup, played a pivotal role in this resurgence, with 7,068 units delivered in August, bringing the total number of G6 units delivered to over 11,000. Xpeng attributes this surge in G6 production to its meticulous preparation and enhanced efficiency throughout the supply chain, underpinned by streamlined manufacturing and delivery capabilities.
The Xpeng G6, introduced in China on June 29, 2023, with deliveries commencing on July 10, holds considerable importance in bolstering Xpeng's sales figures. Despite initial challenges related to capacity ramp-up, the G6 made a substantial impact in its first month, contributing 35.76 percent of Xpeng's deliveries for July, with 3,937 units delivered. In August, G6 deliveries saw a remarkable 79.53 percent increase from July, contributing 51.63 percent to Xpeng's overall deliveries for the month.
In the cumulative data for the January to August period, Xpeng reported delivering a total of 66,133 vehicles, reflecting a year-on-year decrease of 26.59 percent, primarily due to a sharp decline in deliveries earlier in the year. However, as of the end of August, the company had successfully delivered a total of 324,843 vehicles since its inception, according to data monitored by CnEVPost.
In an effort to demonstrate its commitment to innovation and advancement in the EV industry, Xpeng conducted a media test drive in Beijing from August 14 to August 17, showcasing its XNGP ADAS prototype, which does not rely on high-precision maps. During the test drive, the XNGP system on the G6 Max version exhibited impressive capabilities, including traffic light recognition, lane changing, and overtaking on unmapped roads. The media praised the XNGP assisted driving experience as smooth and stable, exceeding expectations. Xpeng has announced plans to accelerate the development of XNGP non-HD map-dependent technology in the second half of 2023, aiming to introduce more advanced smart driving features for a wider range of cities and roads.
In another significant move, Xpeng will be making its debut at Munich's Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung (IAA) from September 4 to September 10. At the event, Xpeng plans to showcase its G9 and new P7 models, offering test drives to partners and visitors. This marks a strategic step for the company in expanding its presence on the global stage.
