Driving Review | XPeng G6 is a challenger for Tesla’s Model Y dominance in China.

Car News China.

Tesla faces increasing competition in China for its Model 3 most notably from the BYD Seal and Nio ET5 (did you read our review?) but also from a raft of other wannabes. Strangely none have dared to tackle the Model Y, until now.

XPeng’s G6 is the first serious competitor and for once the Guangzhou based company doesn’t seem to be shying away from the fact, even providing a Model Y for comparison on a test track.

It’s also no secret that XPeng is under pressure. So far the only car that has had reasonable sales is the P7 and the company very much needs the G6 to be a good seller in order to stay in the game. With prices starting from 29,000 USD (209,900 yuans) and ranging up to 38,300 USD (276,900 yuans) for the 700 Performance Max version, as tested, XPeng is certainly coming out with all guns blazing.
