Various Positions, XPeng Motors

Guangzhou, China

XPeng Motors is an internet electric car company found in mid 2014. With the trend of “Internet+”, “mega data” and “O2O”, we’re dedicated to using new technology, craftsmanship and business models to make future vehicles for the young generation. We want to deliver a brand new experience for our customers from purchasing to using.

As soon as XPeng Motors was founded, several million dollars of angel investment had been achieved including Alibaba and Xiaomi. By late 2015, we had accomplished an investment of over $100 million which will be completely spent on product development. In June 2017, XPeng Motors received funding of 2.2 billions from investors led by Ucar Capital. XPeng Motors will work together with Ucar to build a complete car service system, which connects the whole chain of vehicle R&D, manufacturing, sales and after-sale services. This will enable a ‘lease + sale’ business model.

XPeng Motor’s design studio is located in Guangzhou (the third biggest city in China, close to Hong Kong), China. Focusing on every design scenario, a better user experience will be created. The innovation engineers in the design studio will co-operate with suppliers to develop a new interactive experience. Advanced ideas will be encouraged by investors and founders to create product differentiation.

On 13th September 2016, the production-ready “beta” concept was released. The design had been highly spoken of by Lei Jun, the founder of Xiaomi. For further information please click below:
