Following the G3 and P7, Xiaopeng Motors will usher in a brand new model-Xiaopeng P5.
Recently, Xiaopeng Motors released the latest preview of the new model P5. The new car will be the first mass-produced LiDAR smart car, which will be officially unveiled on April 14.
It is reported that the new car will be positioned lower than the existing Xiaopeng P7. It is a pure electric compact car. It is expected to be put into production in October and will be officially launched at the end of the year.
Judging from the preview picture, from the actual car picture, the Xiaopeng P5 follows the slip-back design of the Xiaopeng P7, with an integrated duck tail above the tail box, giving it a coupe color. In addition, the new car uses the popular through-type taillight design.
Xiaopeng P5 will be the first mass-produced model equipped with lidar. It can also be seen in the official trailer that the new car’s front bumper is equipped with lidar devices on both sides.
The car-grade lidar carried by the P5 is customized by Livox. Technically, it can use three-position laser scanning to generate a point cloud to create a 3D map and allow the NGP function to be used in the city.
At the same time, compared to the combination of millimeter wave radar + camera, lidar has better performance in high-speed static object recognition and low-light environments.
According to existing information, Xiaopeng P5 will be a brand new model positioned below P7 and above G3. The biggest highlight of the car is that it is equipped with a very rare lidar. As for other information, you will have to wait until the auto show. The official release can only be known, let us look forward to it together.
