On the side of the car body, a horizontal high waist line runs through the car body, dividing the whole car into the golden ratio in the longitudinal direction. At the same time, the slender hood, short front overhang, long rear overhang, and 21-inch large wheels together create the elegance and luxury of the whole vehicle like a yacht.
Moreover, on Xiaopeng G9, the visual perception system, 5G antenna, low wind resistance wheel hub and other scientific and technological equipment distributed on the body have been explicitly designed, and the design with a sense of mechanical technology is perfectly integrated with the overall vitality surface of the body. Emphasize the beauty of technology and build a new trend of smart car design.
Industry-leading X-EEA 3.0 electrical and electronic architecture
In the era of smart electric vehicles, the height of the electrical and electronic architecture determines the height of the vehicle’s intelligence level. Thanks to the full-stack self-research capabilities, XPENG Motors has revolutionized the hardware architecture, software architecture and communication architecture of the XPENG G9, creating a leading generation of X-EEA 3.0 electrical and electronic architecture.
The X-EEA 3.0 electronic and electrical architecture adopts a high-convergence hardware architecture of central supercomputer + regional control, which can be equipped with higher-performance chips, support higher-level intelligent assisted driving and more powerful intelligent cockpits. Xiaopeng G9 will also become The first mass-produced car supporting the XPILOT 4.0 intelligent driving assistance system.
The vehicle-level hierarchical software platform architecture of X-EEA 3.0 electronic and electrical architecture is based on the differences in users’ requirements for different types of software. The vehicle software has been defined as a system software platform, a basic software platform, and an intelligent application platform. , In order to enable the rapid development and iteration of intelligent functions, such as intelligent driving assistance systems, intelligent voice vehicle control car settings, and intelligent scenes.
In addition, Xiaopeng G9 has also implemented a communication architecture based on Gigabit Ethernet for the first time in China. It also supports multiple communication protocols, allowing vehicles to transmit data faster, thereby supporting high-level intelligence based on large amounts of data transmission. Intelligent functions such as assisted driving system, smart cockpit, OTA, etc. At the same time, based on more standardized design and more standardized testing, the reliability of communication has also been greatly improved.
X-EEA 3.0 electronic and electrical architecture enables Xiaopeng G9 to have more complete self-diagnosis functions, and to focus on the driving safety of car owners in all aspects; based on layered software platform architecture, intelligent functions can be developed more quickly, and Xiaopeng G9’s OTA iteration speed Greatly speed up; thanks to multiple controllers that can refresh the software simultaneously, the upgrade process time is greatly shortened, and the vehicle-level OTA time can be controlled within 30 minutes. The domain controllers are all used as memory partitions, one area is used for upgrading, and one area is used for normal operation of the vehicle, so that the use of the vehicle will not be affected during the upgrade. The upgrade can be completed after the vehicle is reset and restarted.
Moreover, in terms of power distribution and use, the power supply of the electric equipment of the Xiaopeng G9 vehicle is 100% controllable. The vehicle can perform on-demand power distribution according to the user’s car scene. The power consumption of the vehicle is greatly reduced when the vehicle is in sleep, waking, and standby states. .
800V high voltage SiC platform + 480kW high voltage overcharge to end charging anxiety
In addition to the leading X-EEA 3.0 electrical and electronic architecture, Xiaopeng G9 is also equipped with the XPower 3.0 power system. It is the first mass-produced car based on the 800V high-voltage SiC platform in China. At the same time, the highest efficiency of the electric drive system can reach more than 95%. The 48-hour battery pack with IP68 protection level and the intelligent high-voltage protection system ensure the high safety of the supercharged battery system. At the same time, in order to give full play to the advantages of overcharging technology of the 800V platform, Xiaopeng Motors will also lay China’s first mass-produced 480kW high-voltage overcharging piles to fully release the energy supplement efficiency.
Everyone knows that the integration of improving overcharging capacity with the overall layout of charging piles has always been the development route chosen by Xiaopeng Motors. As of October 31, the total number of overcharging stations under the Xiaopeng Motor brand has been online, and the total number of free charging stations has been online. With 1,734 seats, it provides car owners with high-quality charging services. Xiaopeng Motor hopes to build a better electric travel experience, end charging anxiety, and break the barriers to gasoline and electricity supplements.
