Chinese electric vehicle brand XPeng Inc. (NYSE: XPEV) has confirmed the launch schedule for its third EV model, a sedan, and announced the commercial availability of a variant of its P7 sedan.

What Happened: XPeng's third EV model, named P5, will be launched April 14 in Guangzhou, China, the company revealed in a tweet serving as a countdown for the event. The company described the third model as a "new breed." 

The P5 model is likely to be equipped with lidar technology and positioned below the company's P7 sedan, CnEVPost reported. Separately, the company said it delivered its first P7 Wing edition sedan to customers.
