Just days after launching the G9 SUV, XPeng Motors It has completely overhauled its naming system for trims and now offers two versions with different prices. Chinese automaker, China Motor Corporation, has stated that the changes were driven by customer demand. But the overhaul also clarifies confusion around which G9 configuration provided which standard features. These are the new changes.
Earlier in the week, XPeng Motors launched its highly anticipated G9 SUV, which was shared with the public for first time. We covered the details of the brand new G9 thoroughly, including XPeng’s claim it will arrive as the “world’s fastest charging EV.”
Our report also included details of XPeng’s second-generation ADAS, called XNGP, debuting on the G9 SUV to include driver assistance through busy city environments. Originally, the trims were separated by a series of numbers and one of the five letters in “XPeng” e.g. The 570G or the 650X.
Now, XPeng Motors has done a complete overhaul to the G9 trims available, their nomenclature, and their prices. This was due to customer demand for certain standard features. To begin, here’s how the original prices revealed by XPeng on Wednesday compare to the new pricing announced today.

As you can see, XPeng Motors no longer uses a single letter naming system to identify trims of its G9 SUV. Instead, they use nomenclature that is more in line with Apple products. The CLTC range in kilometers is still represented by the trim numbers. The following explanation was shared by the company:
These adjustments reflect the Company’s commitment to customer experience, and the high demand for certain specifications of the G9, particularly the optional spec packages of cutting-edge technologies.
XPeng spoke with us and revealed that although early demand was very positive in China for the G9, many customers were confused as to which trim configuration would provide them the performance and advanced features they wanted.
XPeng created a new naming system to address this problem. It includes two versions of the G9 SUV as well as adjusted prices. As for standard features, here’s how the trims of the G9 now differentiate:
All versions of the upcoming G9 will come with XPeng’s first generation XPILOT ADAS standard, but if drivers want the second generation XNGP which will eventually include City NGP drivingYou will need to choose from the Max or Launch Edition trims.
Despite all the changes, the G9 remains on schedule First deliveries in China, October. Then deliveries to Europe in 2023. After production in China has increased successfully.
