There are media reports today that several core executives of Xpeng Motors have resigned or are about to resign. Among them, Liu Minghui, vice president of powertrain, has resigned; Liao Qinghong, chief talent officer and vice president of sales, will also resign and is currently on vacation.
The report also said that the change of the two vice president-level executives may be just the beginning, and a larger personnel shock will involve the two core founding members of Xpeng Motors, Xia Heng and He Tao.
In response to the news of the replacement of several core executives, Xpeng Motors responded that the article is not true, and we will use legal means to pursue relevant parties.
It is worth mentioning that since 2022, Xpeng Motors has adjusted its organizational structure many times. In January this year, Great Wall veteran Wang Fengying was also brought in from the outside as the president of Xpeng Motors. In addition, Guangdong Xpeng Automobile Technology Co., Ltd. and Guangzhou Xpeng Automobile Technology Co., Ltd. have undergone industrial and commercial changes recently. Xia Heng stepped down as the legal representative, executive director, and manager of the two companies, and He Xpeng took over.
Xpeng recently launched a facelifted model, the P7i, which is equipped with the NGP function of Xpeng ‘s high-level urban driving assistance. At the same time, Xpeng also plans to launch a medium-sized SUV model this year, which is positioned lower than the G9 and equipped with a pure electric 800V high-voltage platform.
