XPENG G9 Max and P7i Max customers in Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Shanghai, three of China’s largest cities, will receive XNGP via Over-the-Air (OTA) update.
In this first phase, its City NGP (Navigation Guided Pilot) functions, already available in Guangzhou (see details: https://ir.xiaopeng.com/zh-hans/news-releases/news-release-details/xpeng-debuts-city-ngp-pilot-program) will be expanded to eligible customers in Shenzhen and Shanghai.
“Today marks another exciting milestone in the development of autonomous driving. We are truly proud to be trailblazing this leap forward that will significantly enrich our customers’ driving experience using the latest technology,” said Dr Xinzhou Wu, Vice President and Head of Autonomous Driving Center at XPENG.
“XNGP has proven itself to be highly advanced and capable ADAS platform in the Chinese market. We are able to deploy the software via OTA updates to multiple models across multiple cities in China concurrently,” said Dr Wu.
With this OTA update, XPENG also brings to customers its enhanced SR (Simulated Reality) 2.0 empowered by XNET perception technology which delivers a real time Bird’s Eye View (BEV) and 360° panoramic environmental perception of surrounding road conditions.
The OTA update delivered through XPENG’s latest operating system Xmart OS 4.2.0, brings 27 new functions, 52 optimizations and over 40 other improvements, covering smart driving, smart voice, cockpit experience, among others.
The second phase of XNGP’s rollout is planned for 2H 2023. In the second phase rollout, full lane changing, overtaking and navigation through crossroads under complex city driving scenarios will be expanded to major Chinese cities and no longer require high definition map.
