Xpeng G9Car of the Year in Norway

XPENG Motors (“XPENG” or the “Company,” NYSE: XPEV and HKEX: 9868), a leading Chinese smart EV company, becomes the first Chinese car brand to win “People’s Favorite 2024”, also known as ‘folkets favoritt’, with the XPENG G9 in Norway’s renowned “Car of The Year” awards.

“It was a tight race all to the end, but then there were also strong competitors XPENG eventually knocked out. In the end, XPENG took a strong lead, eventually ending up with 15.22 percent of the vote. Number two reached 13.88 percent.”

Denmark has awarded the G 9 the Technological Frontrunner of the Year.

car jury consisting of motoring journalists, where their votes weighed 80% and the votes of the public weighed 20%.

Technological Frontrunner of the Year is awarded to a car that has raised the technological bar the most. With the market’s highest charging speed of up to 300 kW, the XPENG G9 has pushed Danes’ range anxiety, as it is possible to charge the large SUV from 10-80% in just 20 minutes. The G9 is also packed with comfort and safety equipment as a standard, which helps to democratize the traditionally expensive extra equipment.

NO this not mean Xpeng is the Tesla giant killer. Just that Chinese EV makers are becoming more competitive.

A quick peek at G 9:

The G9 is easily the best XPeng Motors model I’ve driven


The article only talks about XPENG not any of the other cars. Seems more like a commercial than a story. Have you driven a Tesla?


I suspect Scooter has as he is a EV journalist.

Need to change vehicle to meet EU specs–not stated. Import duties. Tax on buying a new car (now there is a KA-CHING).

Calculate the taxes (link below). Purchase price, import fees, etc are not included. So “the price” is mostly adding taxes, fees, etc to retail price.
