XPENG’s intelligent manufacturing plant in Guangzhou (Canton) comprises a complete vehicle production site (already operational) and facilities for the manufacture of batteries, electric motors and, in the near future, other components. The entire site covers some 310 hectares, for a total investment of over 4.5 billion yuan (approx. 585 million euros). The entire facility covers some 226 hectares, with buildings covering some 230,000 square meters. It comprises four main production workshops: stamping, welding, painting and final assembly. Support facilities include power plants, water treatment plants, waste treatment areas, hazardous waste warehouses, oil storage facilities, parking lots, EWC warehouses, test tracks and quality control centers.

This project follows a “smart and green” design concept, using Industry 4.0 intelligent manufacturing systems, including an in-house developed digital intelligent MES system, an end-to-end TQM quality management system, and intelligent logistics systems. These systems enable end-to-end data management, from component collection and transportation to production, manufacturing and quality inspection. The welding process is 100% automated, production process management is fully digitized, and quality processes are 100% traceable. The project integrates a 19.6 MW photovoltaic system, creating an intelligent, green factory integrating technology and innovation in manufacturing.
