XPeng X2 will present at the 13th Airshow China 2021, starting
on September 28 in Zhuhai, Guangdong Province.
X2 is equipped with a robust, highly intelligent flight control
system and superior autonomous flying capability, able to conduct
autonomous flight route planning, all-round real-time imaging,
real-time flight monitoring, two-way real-time communications,
all-round environmental perception and autonomous return and
landing. It is powered by a highly efficient and convenient
charging system, leveraging XPeng’s supercharging technology.
The X2 has an user-friendly interface with one-key start,
one-key return, and one-key landing, significantly reducing burdens
for the user, delivering a safe and intelligent flight
Before take-off, the system performs intelligent autonomous
flight route planning based on the destination entered by the user,
comprehensively evaluating factors such as surrounding buildings,
no-fly and restricted areas, and weather conditions.
In a graphical recreational video, X2 demonstrates an efficient,
effective and environmentally friendly commute from the top apron
of a CBD building to a residential building, and connecting to the
airport and other transportation hubs, simulating future lifestyle,
business travel and other mobility scenarios.
In its first debut at an aerospace exhibition, X2 will be shown
on September 28 at the 13th China International Aviation &
Aerospace Exhibition (Airshow China 2021), showcasing its
cutting-edge design and capabilities.
Introducing XPeng X2, the 5th generation flying
The XPeng X2 is the latest generation flying vehicle
independently developed by HT Aero, having conducted more than
15,000 safe, manned flights. X2 is a pure electric two-seater
enclosed-cockpit flying vehicle and an exploration of an
aircraft-car integration with significantly improved effective
load, passenger number, exterior design and flight control system
than the previous generation.
X2 adopts a closed cockpit for the first time, with styling that
shares the design language of the XPeng P7. It presents an elegant,
minimalist and a teardrop profile. As well as its sci-fi
appearance, X2 also takes into account high-efficiency aerodynamics
to optimize flight performance.
With a full carbon fiber structure, X2 weighs 560 kilograms
(empty aircraft with battery) and has the maximum take-off weight
of 760 kilograms with a capacity of two passengers. It can cruise
at a maximum design speed of 130 kilometers per hour and has a
range of 35 minutes at a designed flying height of under 1,000
meters, suitable for low-altitude urban flight scenarios.
Powered purely by electricity, X2 has no carbon dioxide
emissions during flight, in line with the company’s goal of green
urban transportation. With 130 kilometers per hour, X2 can meet the
needs of short-distance urban transportation, and can serve in
scenarios such as air patrol, field rescue, and medical
