Official: XPeng P5, with LiDAR sensors and sleep mode

After a short teasing period, Xiaopeng Motors or Xpeng today introduced the P5, which is added to the range of the Chinese electric vehicle manufacturer, and now has three models, along with the P7 and the G3.

The P5 will debut at the Shanghai Motor Show, which opens on April 19, and according to the Guangzhou-based company, the P5 is the first mass-produced electric car to feature LiDAR technology.

Thus, the P5 has two dual prism LiDAR sensors, which are located where the air intakes at the ends of the bumper would normally be. The car is able to distinguish pedestrians, cyclists and scooters, static obstacles and road work, in any challenging scenarios such as night and low light conditions, backlight as well as alternating light, and dark tunnel lighting.

The P5 also has 12 ultrasonic sensors, 5mm wave radar and 13 high-resolution cameras, in order to be able to cope with all the difficult and complex road conditions, with the model having the -latest- autonomous driving system XPILOT 3.5.

The P5 has a length of 4,808 mm. and a wheelbase of 2,768 mm, which means that the car is 114 mm. longer than the Tesla Model 3, but has 107 mm. shorter wheelbase. Aesthetically, the P5 borrows elements from the larger P7, although – in my personal estimation – it is not as beautiful as the second.

However, the P5 has an evolving front grille, with X-shaped luminaires. The P5 also has a rounded front bumper, with a wide opening at the bottom, and two charging ports, one on each of the front wings.

Looking at the profile, we can see the plastic protective lining of the body, a soft sloping roof, while the profile runs through a distinctive line. The model also has a panoramic glass roof and a chrome trim at the height of the windows.

Going to the rear, the P5 has slim LED taillights, which are attached to a thin illuminated strip, while we can also see a very small luggage compartment, and the black rear bumper guards.

Passing into the cab, we see a digital instrument panel in front of the driver and a 15.6-inch screen, with vertical orientation, for the infotainment system, which has new features. In addition, there are leather seats, glossy black upholstery and metallic touches.

Xpeng did not give further details about the interior, but confirmed that the car will offer a built-in refrigerator and aroma. In addition, the P5 features digital key technology as well as “sleep mode”, which allows the front seats to lie down completely.

Xpeng has not announced the electric motors, nor the batteries of the P5, as all its features will be announced on April 19. However, it is expected to be offered with a variety of engines as well as four-wheel drive. In terms of price, it should be lower than the P7, which starts in China at 229,900 yuan (€ 29,400).
