The computing center is said to be the largest in China and has the ability to compute speeds of up to 600 petaflops which can run simulation tests 170 times faster than before.
The computing center is cloud-based from Alibaba, which is an investor in Xpeng. Alibaba has reportedly been working to strengthen the division to cope with the slowdown in its e-commerce business.
Xpeng previously had advanced driver assistance technology with its XPILOT feature. Last year, the company released City NGP, which allows its vehicles to change lanes, speed up, slow down, and even get off the highway.
Xpeng is currently trying to compete in the competitive EV market in China. The company is trying to position itself as a technology company rather than a car company. This is done to compete with other companies such as BYD, NIO, and Tesla.
Xpeng is also investing in robotics and flying passenger drones, which puts it in a competitive position with Hyundai.
