  First, let me in the front, announced this Xiaopeng Xiaopeng Cars Cars BETA version of the full 90 per cent of car design has been frozen, as far as we know the new car mass production will not be much change in the future will be designed exterior and interior , but the exterior and interior parts is mostly hot synthesis member and 3D prints is not required for production tooling. So I prefer to call it as - Xiaopeng first electric car prototype SUV.

  Car positioning in a compact SUV, from the experience of those who ride performance, which basically reached the same level of the required level, which for the sake of the high roof of the camera, the new car is not designed skylight, but it increases the front row headroom for driver and passengers. But the new car is not designed rear armrest, which we hope can be supplemented in the production design.

3 Powertrain solid

    Since the car is not a production version, the configuration should be improved late, but few details on the design of the new car is very user-friendly, such as the front desk hidden panels, mobile wireless charger up to 5 USB interface, somewhat surprise people.

  Xiaopeng car battery from Samsung, although the chemical industry, but its independent development of the battery pack and a new set of BMS battery management system, which is the core technology - fuse links and liquid cooling to ensure the safety and reliability of the battery system performance balance.

● Power: reached volume production design, dual-motor drive, integrated maximum power of 300 hp or more

    Xiaopeng car BETA version are the front-wheel drive and four-wheel drive manufactured version, but this experience is the four-wheel drive version of the car, car dual-motor design, the front and rear axles are driven to form a four-wheel drive configuration. Currently Xiaopeng car did not disclose the specific dynamic parameters of this model, but we live from one factory workers learned to test drive models feature dual front and rear motor drive, so its overall maximum power of more than 300 hp, Mileage 300km about.

Driving experience

  Although Xiaopeng car BETA version is not yet a fully production prototype vehicle, but it has been part of the powertrain has reached mass production design, the new car provides a standard, sports, long distance, saving a total of four different driving modes to the driver selection, and currently only open standard mode experience.

  As an electric car, the early part of the powerful torque output of traditional energy vehicles to bring people often do not feel the pleasure, but the pleasure comes and goes too fast, but light depresses Xiaopeng car BETA version of "switches" powerful torque does not seem to want to intervene early stage so suddenly, you feel only a smooth acceleration.

  But if you want to try it a real sense of acceleration, just tread depth "switches", which sets the maximum power of over 300 horsepower four-wheel drive electric vehicles brings a strong sense of pushing back as much as some performance car, but due to the experience space constraints, I did not feel the full strength of the car.

  In terms of suspension, after the car uses non-independent torsion beam suspension design, roll in the corners of the road was not large, giving the overall feeling is still very solid. However, because of limited space, I did not experience the feelings of the suspension of the car on a regular road.

  In addition, the BEAT Edition Xiaopeng car is also equipped with automatic parking technology, which can without any operator intervention, automatically parking into place with a bit of work. Future car will be further developed in terms of the autopilot, the manufacturers hope to achieve mass production after the owners leave their car, the vehicle can automatically search the network map and the first to enter the parking lot parking parking bits, when the owners return vehicle self parking a bit, heading for the owner location.

Full summary:

  With Tesla's success, more and more Chinese Internet companies began to enter the new energy automobile manufacturing industry, which has both the sense of painstaking research and development among designers, but also talk about the exhibition PPT repairer who, while Xiaopeng car prior to this episode leave you with the impression that only a close new LOGO Lexus NX. And the Xiaopeng appearance is like a car BETA results show, it is already out of PPT repairer this concept.

    Although the project did not progress to the final stage, after the experience of the prototype car, I feel the powertrain is still very good, but in the car interior and exterior design needs improvement. But as an emerging Internet companies to build cars, cars can not be ignored Xiaopeng question is how to consider among suppliers and cost, which has not been involved in a car manufacturing industry in terms of Internet companies are based on the fundamental. In June Xiaopeng car got $ 100 million round of funding in the future it can go far in the automotive industry continues, we'll see.
