This is feasible, considered that Xpeng is wanting to update the technology at its Zhaoqing plant over the Chinese brand-new year as it wants to speed up shipments. As we’ve kept in mind before, overall EV need as well as favorable regulation in China are a large tailwind for Xpeng. EV sales, including plug-in hybrids, rose by around 170% in 2021 to near to 3 million devices, consisting of plug-in hybrids, and also EV infiltration as a percentage of new-car sales in China stood at about 15% in 2014.

Xpeng likewise trades at a greater several versus its peers (concerning 12x 2021 profits, compared to concerning 8x for Nio and Li Vehicle) and this might additionally weigh on the stock if investors turn out of growth stocks right into even more worth names.
