As part of the partnership, charging and related payment data will be shared between Xpeng and TELD countrywide. Xpeng’s APP has access to TELD’s 50,000 charging piles in 183 cities in China, allowing consumers to search TELD’s charging facilities using Xpeng’s APP or vehicles. Payment can be conducted by a simple code scan.
Xpeng Motors is also the first new electric vehicle maker in China to utilise TELD’s technology that monitors and analyses the charging data in real-time, allowing detection of any abnormal data and triggering of the active protection mechanism to maximise safety protection for the vehicle.
“Xpeng Motors and TELD are pioneering a new model and the partnership represents a win-win opportunity, leveraging the strength and capability of frontrunners in the smart vehicle sector and new energy power sector,” said Mr. He Xiaopeng, Chairman and CEO of Xpeng Motors at the launch ceremony in Qingdao, together with Mr. Yu Dexiang, Chairman of TELD.
