XPeng P7 Tops China EV Startup Sales Chart in August — By Far

There are all kinds of electric vehicle sales competitions around the globe, and we write about a lot of them. A rather interesting one is the EV sales competition among Chinese EV startups. No other country has as many competitive, successful, fast-blooming EV startups as China. There are many in China that I can’t even name. The most interesting ones for me, and many others, are XPeng and NIO. I’m just very impressed with their vehicles — which are basically computers on wheels — and I know they are both rolling into Europe and could (possibly) even one day be in the American market.

NIO had another growth month in August, accumulating 5,880 sales across the ES6, EC6, and ES8. However, XPeng triumphed over that total with just one model last month. XPeng scored a record 6,165 sales of its P7 sedan in August. The XPeng G3 also grabbed a few sales (1,049).

In the overall plugin model market, the XPeng P7 is #10 when it comes to January–July sales. And if you took out plugin hybrids, the P7 would be #8. Furthermore, the P7’s sales just seem to be growing and growing, so we could well see a higher score again next month. In fact, I expect it.

Concerning August sales, no other model even came within 1500 sales of tying the P7. For much more on the electric smart sedan, read this thorough XPeng P7 page?

 
I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
