XPeng launched City NGP, the most advanced ADAS system in China.

Initially, the City NGP will be available on the premium version of XPeng P5. The upcoming G9 SUV will also get the new ADAS update.

Chinese EV company XPeng has launched the City Navigation Guided Pilot Program ( NGP ). The company claims that it is China’s most advanced ADAS function for urban driving, and XPeng is the first Chinese auto company to launch such high-level ADAS functions for complex urban driving scenarios.

Initially, the City NGP updates are available for XPeng P5 customers in Guangzhou. The company will launch it in other cities soon.

In the beginning, the City NGP updates will be available only on the premium version of XPeng P5. After updating, users have to drive for seven days, and 100 km before its functions can be used on all available roads. This new update will also be available on the new flagship G9 SUV, launching on September 21.

XPeng claims that the City NGP Pilot Program is China’s most advanced ADAS function. After activating it with a set destination, the vehicle itself can perform the full range of driving tasks such as cruising at a safe distance from leading vehicles, changing lanes due to navigation or vehicle overtaking decisions, handling merging/splitting roads, getting around stationary vehicles or obstacles, and maintaining an appropriate speed throughout the driving route.

The vehicle can also automatically detect and react to traffic lights, make lane change decisions and inform drivers, take left or right turns and navigate through intersections, roundabouts, viaducts, and tunnels, as well as avoid obstructions like construction, pedestrians, and cyclists.

The City NGP ADAS technology is built on an industry-leading platform, and it features a multi-modality sensor fusion framework with cameras, LiDAR units, millimeter-wave radars, high-precision positioning units, and other sensor hardware to offer a 360-degree fusion perception.

XPeng also introduced an enhanced Surrounding Reality (SR) display, capable of visualizing a vehicle’s surrounding objects and projecting them in 3D, together with high-definition map information, on both the digital dashboard and central panel in real time.

Mr. He Xiaopeng, Chairman and CEO of XPeng, said: With the rollout of City NGP, XPeng is spearheading a strategic roadmap to complete our ADAS coverage from highways and parking lots to much more complex city driving scenarios, offering our customers enhanced safety and an optimized driving experience. We believe the continuous evolvement of City NGP and the expansion of its coverage will accelerate the transformation of the driving experiences of our customers.
