XPeng's (NYSE: XPEV) Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) similar to 's FSD (Full Self-Driving) is now available in Beijing, making the company the first to launch the feature in the Chinese capital city.

The XPeng feature, called City NGP (Navigation Guided Pilot), is open in Beijing for users participating in a public test and is currently available on Beijing's ring roads and major highways, according to a press release today.

In addition to public test users, the feature will soon be available for general users of the Max version of XPeng's flagship G9 and P7i with the Xmart OS 4.3.0 system update, it said.

XPeng P5's P-version models will also be able to use the City NGP feature in Beijing after upgrading to Xmart OS 3.5.0, according to the company.


City NGP is an ADAS feature similar to Tesla's FSD, which allows the vehicle to perform driving tasks when it is activated and navigation destinations are set.

This includes cruising at a safe distance from the vehicle ahead, changing lanes due to navigation or vehicle overtaking decisions, handling merging and lane splitting, and going around stationary vehicles or obstacles.

On September 17, 2022, the City NGP feature became available on a pilot basis in Guangzhou, where XPeng is headquartered. One month later, XPeng officially opened the feature to all eligible P5 cars in Guangzhou on October 21.

When XPeng launched its flagship SUV, the G9, on September 21, 2022, it said the model would feature a second-generation assisted driving system called XNGP.

XNGP is a full-scenario assisted driving system, and XPeng aims to have it provide driving assistance in all scenarios including highways, city roads, internal campus roads, and parking lots.

On October 24, 2022, XPeng said at its annual Tech Day event that XNGP for G9 Max will enable support for City NGP in Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Shanghai in the first half of 2023.

On March 31 of this year, XPeng announced that XNGP achieved the first phase of capability, covering the G9 Max and P7i Max versions, to gain City NGP capability in Shanghai, Shenzhen and Guangzhou, three cities with high precision map coverage.

Phase 2 of XNGP, which XPeng will launch in the second half of 2023, will see full lane-changing, overtaking and left/right turn capabilities extended to major Chinese cities without high-precision maps, while full-scenario ADAS is planned for 2024, the company said at the time.

When the full rollout of the XNGP system is completed in 2024, it will enable full-scenario ADAS from start to stop, the company said.

Based on XNGP's ability to iterate quickly, the improved capabilities of City NGP brought by the Xmart OS 4.3.0 upgrade will allow vehicles to handle tasks including lane changes, detours and following vehicles with greater ease, XPeng said today.

City NGP under the XNGP system has powerful AI learning capabilities that will allow driving skills to improve faster and also allow it to cover more cities at a faster pace, according to XPeng.

In addition to Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen, the City NGP feature is expected to cover dozens of additional cities within the year, XPeng said.

The latest XNGP will also bring next-generation Highway NGP capabilities that perform closer to L4 assisted driving, with almost 0 takeover in highway scenarios, the company said.

City NGP has gained the equivalent of one year of driving experience for human drivers on average each quarter since its launch in October 2022, XPeng said.

In the second half of 2023, XPeng will gradually release ADAS features for Chinese cities or urban areas without HD map coverage, it said, adding that it also plans to offer customized NGP features for daily commutes across the country.

These initiatives will cater to a wider range of driving scenarios and provide users with a more intelligent driving experience in a variety of environments, XPeng said.

XPeng is seen as one of the strongest in China in terms of assisted driving capabilities, though its local counterparts are also making rapid progress on their own.

's similar feature is called NOP (Navigate on Pilot), though it doesn't yet cover urban areas. The company began allowing owners of all its NT 2.0 platform vehicles to apply for a trial of an improved version of the system, NOP+ Beta, on February 20.

NOP+ Beta covers 95 percent of China's core highways and urban fast roads, and offers significant improvements in safety and comfort of experience in scenarios including following, lane changing and overtaking, and ramp passing, NIO said on April 10.

NOP+ will gradually switch and upgrade to BEV architecture in 2023, and the hardware capability and algorithm architecture will help NOP+ cover more road scenarios, the company said at the time.

In addition, starting in the second half of 2023, the feature will support pilot navigation to battery swap stations along highways and automatic replacement of fully charged batteries, according to NIO.

NIO's assisted driving software covering urban areas is called NAD (NIO Autonomous Driving), and the system is not yet available.

(NASDAQ: LI) unveiled its latest generation of assisted driving system, AD Max 3.0, on the first day of the Shanghai auto show on April 18. The system's all-scenario Navigation on ADAS (NOA) will kick off internal testing this quarter and will cover more than 100 cities by the end of the year, Li Auto said at the time.

XPeng (NYSE: XPEV) is rolling out its FSD-like City Navigation Guided Pilot (City NGP) feature in more cities.

The XPeng P5 will receive its seventh vehicle OTA upgrade, which will make NGP functionality available in Shenzhen, according to information released today by the electric vehicle (EV) maker.

City NGP can be up to 90 percent as efficient as a human driver, easily handling dense traffic during peak commuting hours, as well as complex road conditions, XPeng said.

With access to the feature, XPeng vehicles can intelligently recognize traffic lights by lane and automatically start and stop, it said.

With the support of LiDARs, vehicles can actively avoid pedestrians and vehicles as well as roadblocks, making the smart driving experience safer, XPeng said.

On October 21, 2022, XPeng opened the City NGP feature to all P5 sedans in Guangzhou, where it is headquartered. The P5 is the first of the company's models to support the LiDAR option.

All P5 models equipped with LiDARs and featuring XPilot 3.5 software and upgrades will have access to City NGP functionality.

In cities where City NGP is available, P5 users can use NGP assisted driving on regular roads, in addition to using the feature on highways.

To better build trust in human-machine co-driving, XPeng has introduced the SR smart assisted driving environment simulation display. The City NGP has a richer center control and instrumentation SR simulation display than the highway NGP.

In announcing February delivery figures on March 1, XPeng said that the City NGP advanced driver assistance feature will be implemented in several models in several cities, including Shenzhen and Shanghai, starting in March.

The upcoming OTA upgrade for the XPeng P5 will see the Xmart OS version number upgraded to 3.4.0, which will bring more than 20 enhancements to the base experience in addition to making City NGP available in Shenzhen, the company said.
