This is possible, considered that Xpeng is seeking to upgrade the innovation at its Zhaoqing plant over the Chinese brand-new year as it seeks to increase distributions. As we’ve noted prior to, total EV demand and also positive guideline in China are a huge tailwind for Xpeng.

Xpeng also intends to drive its worldwide growth by going into markets including Sweden, the Netherlands, as well as Denmark sometime in 2022, with a long-term objective of selling about half its automobiles beyond China.

The recurring worries in the Chinese markets and also rising rate of interest can weigh on the returns for the stock. Xpeng additionally trades at a higher multiple versus its peers (concerning 12x 2021 earnings, compared to concerning 8x for Nio as well as Li Car) and also this could likewise weigh on the stock if financiers turn out of development stocks into even more value names.
