OSLO, Norway, Nov. 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- XPENG Motors ("XPENG" or the "Company," NYSE: XPEV and HKEX: 9868), a leading Chinese smart EV company, becomes the first Chinese car brand to win "People's Favorite 2024", also known as 'folkets favoritt', with the XPENG G9 in Norway's renowned “Car of The Year” awards.

"People's Favorite" is part of the prestigious award "Car of the Year 2024" which is carried out for the nineteenth year in a row by Dagbladet in collaboration with media publications Dinside and Elbil24. Readers of Dagbladet, Dinside and Elbil24 in Norway voted for their favorite car for a month, with the XPENG G9 winning with 15.22 percent of the vote.

Managing Director of XPeng Motors Norway, Claes Persson, expressed gratitude for this award:

"We consider this to be an incredibly distinguished award, especially because the people chose us as the winner. We look forward to developing our current and upcoming electric car models further."

Editor in Elbil24, Fred Magne Skillebæk, said of the extensive test:

"It was a tight race all to the end, but then there were also strong competitors XPENG eventually knocked out. In the end, XPENG took a strong lead, eventually ending up with 15.22 percent of the vote. Number two reached 13.88 percent."

Since XPENG began delivering the XPENG G9 to customers earlier this year, it has become the sixth most registered electric car in Norway (November 2023).
