The Chinese electric car manufacturer Xpeng Motors and the Swedish car dealer Bilia have now signed an agreement for the Swedish market. The agreement means that Xpeng’s cars will be available in Bilia’s Xpeng stores and serviced at their service center.
Three Xpeng stores will open in Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö in 2022. An Experience Store in Westfield Mall of Scandinavia in Stockholm will open on 11 February 2022. The idea is then to expand to more locations in the coming years.
– It is very fun to be able to announce the collaboration with Bilia. Throughout our establishment in Sweden, we have been keen to find the right partner for us. Bilia is known throughout Europe for its good customer relations and its high standard of service. The fact that our cars will be available through Bilia also strengthens our brand and shows the high attractiveness, quality and innovative height of our models. We see this as the beginning of a long and successful collaboration, says Elvis Cheng, Nordic CEO at Xpeng, in a press release.
– I am proud that Bilia has been entrusted to conduct sales and service operations for Xpeng in Sweden. We see that Xpeng has high-tech and interesting products together with a drive to be at the forefront and an ambition to build a premium position. Bilia’s focus on good service and satisfied customers fits perfectly with Xpeng. I am really looking forward to our collaboration, says Per Avander, Bilia’s President and CEO, in the same press release.
Xpeng Motors was founded in 2015 and in addition to electric cars, the company also makes electric aircraft and robots.
