At present, new energy MPV has become a new battlefield for domestic car companies. In 2022, Lantu dreamer, Teng Teng D9 and Polar Krypton 009 have been listed one after another, among which Teng Teng D9 has firmly ranked second in the MPV market. After entering 2023, more and more brands will accelerate to enter the market. In addition to the Wei brand Gaoshan, Xiaopeng X9, ideal MEGA, Hechuang V09 and other MPV models will be launched this year. At that time, the momentum of new energy MPV competing for traditional fuel MPV market will intensify day by day, and the competition between domestic MPV will also be upgraded.
Retail data show that the MPV market sold 813800 vehicles in the first three quarters, up 18.2% from a year earlier, making it the fastest-growing vehicle category, though far smaller than cars and SUV. In terms of models, the highest-selling MPV was Buick GL8, with 88588 vehicles, followed by Tengli D9, with 87594 vehicles. In the previous ten lists, only one new energy MPV, Teng Teng D9, entered the list, and the rest were fuel MPV.
Cui Dongshu, secretary general of the Federation of passengers, pointed out, "many changes in the MPV market are closely related to the high-end of independent brands. As an upgrade of consumption, high-end electric cars have natural advantages. According to the changing trend of household structure of consumer groups in China, there is still great potential for the development of MPV sales, and household MPV sales in China will also usher in growth in the future. "
For new energy MPV, this is a challenge as well as an opportunity. The opportunity is that the MPV market is indeed a blue sea, and there are only a few cars that are really influential, such as Buick GL8, Toyota Sena, Honda Odyssey and so on, while Teng Teng D9 has taken the lead in proving that the new energy MPV market is feasible, so other models with the same strength will not be very difficult to walk. The challenge is that the new energy MPV market will be extremely inward-rolling, including momentum, Wei Brand, ideal and Xiaopeng will avoid competing with each other.
As far as Wei Gaoshan is concerned, as a medium and large MPV, Wei Gaoshan has enough space, but the size of the standard version is smaller than that of Lantu dreamer and Teng Teng D9. In contrast, the administrative extended version of the wheelbase up to 3275mm, coupled with luxurious product configuration, is more suitable for receiving VIPs, which is also needed as a high-end MPV model.
