The Xpeng P7’s prices in Norway, the brand’s first overseas market, are finally here. Test drives and customer deliveries are yet to begin.
The XPeng P7 is available in Norway in two variants: RWD Long Range and 4WD High Performance. The former costs NOK 447,820, and the latter NOK 507,820. Both variants have an 80 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. The RWD Long Range variant can travel up 530 km* on a full charge, while the 4WD High Performance variant’s charging depletes at 470 km*.
The RWD Long Range variant should have a permanent magnet synchronous motor that generates 196 kW and 390 Nm of torque. The 4WD High Performance variant should sport two motors, one at the front and the other at the rear, producing 316 kW of combined power and 655 Nm of combined torque. Officially, the only thing we know on the performance front is that the RWD Long Range and 4WD High Performance variants’ 0-100 km/h acceleration times are 6.9 and 4.5 seconds, respectively.
The RWD Long Range variant packs features like XPilot 2.5 ADAS, 19-inch wheels, panoramic sunroof, electrically folding ORVMs with memory function, air purifier, driver’s seat with 4-way lumbar support with electric adjustment and ventilation, front-seat heating, Xpeng sound system, wraparound ambient lighting, and wireless mobile phone charger.

Xpeng in Norway
Xpeng Motors will start offering P7 test drives in Norway at its 17 dealers from approximately mid-November 2021. The company wants to increase presence in the country by setting up a full-scale commercial establishment that includes showrooms, delivery and service centers, and charging stations.
Xpeng P7 gains popularity in China
The Xpeng P7 is starting to become a popular midsize sedan in China, and that’s not specifically in the EV category. He Xiaopeng, Chairman & CEO, Xpeng Motors, thinks that his car will outsell the long-established Audi A4 L, as per a report from CnEVPost. An Audi A4 e-tron electric sedan is on the product roadmap, but it’s a few years away.
On 23 August 2021, one day before it exported the first batch of the P7 to Norway, Xpeng Motors rolled out the 50,000th P7 off the production line in Zhaoqing (Guangdong), China. The company achieved the milestone 496 days after rolling out the first P7 in April 2020.
Xpeng Motors started selling the P7 in June 2020. The company sold 39,227 P7s between January and September 2021. In September 2021 alone, it delivered 7,512 units of the P7.
