Just days after the official launch of the G9 SUV, XPeng Motors has completely updated the naming system of its components, offering two new versions and different prices. The Chinese automaker cited overwhelming customer demand as the reason for the changes, but the overhaul will also eliminate confusion over which configuration of the G9 delivers which standard features. These are the changes.

Earlier this week, XPeng Motors officially unveiled its highly anticipated G9 SUV in China, publicly sharing available trims and pricing for the first time. We reviewed the details of the new G9 in full, including XPeng’s claim that it will arrive as “the world’s fastest-charging electric car.”

Our report also included details on XPeng’s second-generation ADAS, called XNGP, which debuted on the G9 SUV and includes driver assistance through busy urban environments. Pads were originally separated by a series of numbers and one of the five letters in “XPeng”, such as 570G or 650X.

Now, XPeng Motors has suddenly completely revised the available G9 trims, the nomenclature of said trims and their prices, citing customer demand for certain standard features. For starters, here’s how the original prices revealed by XPeng on Wednesday compare to the new prices announced today.

Original G9 pads Price Revised G9 trim Price
570G 309,900 yuan ($43,962) 570 plus 309,900 yuan ($43,962)
570E 329,900 yuan ($46,800) 570 Pro 329,900 yuan ($46,800)
702E 349,900 yuan ($49,638) 570 Max 349,900 yuan ($49,638)
Performance 650E 399,900 yuan ($56,730) 702 Pro 349,900 yuan ($49,638)
650X performance 449,900 yuan ($63,825) 702 Max 369,900 yuan ($51,891)
650X Launch Edition 469,900 yuan ($66,662) 650 Performance Pro 399,900 yuan ($56,730)
N/A N/A 650 Max 419,900 yuan ($58,905)
N/A N/A 650 Launch edition 469,900 yuan ($66,662)

As you can see above, XPeng Motors has ditched the single-letter naming system for the G9 SUV in favor of a nomenclature more reminiscent of Apple products. However, the numbers in each trim still represent the CLTC’s range in km. The company shared the following reasons for the sudden change:

These adjustments reflect the company’s commitment to customer experience and high demand for certain G9 specifications, particularly the advanced technology specification packages.

In our talks with XPeng, we learned that while early demand for the G9 was quite positive in China, many customers were confused about which trim configuration would give them the performance and advanced features they wanted as standard.

To address this issue, XPeng has introduced a new naming system that includes two additional versions of the G9 SUV and adjusted pricing. In terms of standard features, here’s what makes the G9 trims different now:

All versions of the upcoming G9 will come with first-generation XPENG XPILOT ADAS as standard, but if drivers want second-generation XNGP, which will eventually include Urban NGP managementthey will need to purchase one of the Max or Launch Edition trims.

Despite the changes, G9 remains on schedule for first deliveries to China in October, followed by deliveries to Europe sometime in 2023 following a successful domestic production ramp-up.
