XPeng Inc., a leading Chinese smart electric vehicle (Smart EV) company, has kicked off the autonomous driving expedition with a fleet of XPeng P7s, covering a total distance of 3,675 km across six provinces in China. This will be the longest autonomous driving expedition by mass-produced vehicles in China.
The expedition will showcase the capability of Navigation Guided Pilot (NGP), full-stack in-house developed autonomous driving solution by XPeng, in complex driving scenarios on China’s highways. The NGP will challenge the metrics including the frequency of human driver intervention per 100 kilometers, the success rate for automatic highway ramp entering and exiting, automatic lane changing, overtaking and passing through tunnels.
The expedition is being joined by more than 200 auto journalists, EV enthusiasts and industry experts over the course of 7 days from March 19-26. The fleet of P7s will drive across 10 cities in China, starting from Guangzhou to Shantou, Quanzhou, Wenzhou, Hangzhou, Shanghai, Nanjing, Qingdao, Jinan, finishing in Beijing on March 26.
NGP highway solution provides navigation assisted autonomous driving from point A to B, based on the navigation route set by the driver, and is available on highways covered by high-precision maps in China.
