The big news here is Xpeng pricing its newest G6 SUV at 209,900 yuan in China. That comes in below the 263,900 yuan starting price for a Tesla Model Y in the country. This could help Xpeng’s G6 dethrone the Model Y as one of the best-selling EVs in the country.
Analysts are also positive about the low price of the G6. They claim that this will allow the company to move 100,000 units each month. Citigroup specifically highlights that it will draw in EV customers that can’t afford the more expensive Model Y or Xpeng’s own P7i.
