Xpeng's new SUV, the G6, has received good initial acceptance and now the company has an important task: ramping up production capacity as soon as possible.

Customers have been very enthusiastic about the G6, and those who order it now will have to wait about 10 weeks. Xpeng wants shorter and shorter delivery cycles for the G6, but right now the model still needs capacity ramp-up. G6 has received a significant number of orders, which would help Xpeng see monthly deliveries reach 15,000 units in the third quarter and 20,000 units in the fourth quarter.

Xpeng officially launched the G6 in China on June 29 with a starting price of RMB 209,900, significantly lower than the starting price of RMB 263,900 for the Tesla Model Y, its main competitor, in China.

The company began pre-sales for the G6 on June 9 and later announced that the model had received more than 25,000 orders within 72 hours. The G6 is expected to become the top-selling smart electric SUV priced at the RMB 250,000 level in China within two months, he said at the time.

In an interview with local media following the G6 launch, Mr. He said the G6's monthly sales target is at least 10,000 units. Xpeng app shows that the G6's lower-priced Pro versions all currently have an estimated wait time of 10 weeks, while the Max versions all have 12 weeks.
