Mechanism for Handling Quality Issues In 2021, XPeng Inc. refined after-sales service quality measures such as the Management Measures for Rapid Response to Market Quality Problems and the Measures for the Management of Market Quality Information, and promoted the visualization of data indicators and the efficiency of quality improvement. In order to address market quality problems identified from multiple channels, including 400 hotline complaints, store-side maintenance, background alarms, and others, XPeng uses quality methods and tools to analyze the problems, in accordance with the "Three Reality Principle ", and at the same time evaluates the effectiveness of our problem solving through mechanisms such as quality daily meetings, director's weekly meetings and meetings with the company president. When handling each case of quality issues, we identify the common points from multiple aspects such as design, suppliers, production logistics, etc., to formulate countermeasures from the perspective of quality systems. In this way, we address the root causes of problems and achieve effective prevention. For products that need to be recalled due to product quality or safety issues, XPeng Inc. follows the requirements of the national Regulations on the Administration of Recalls of Defective Automotive Products and has formulated the recall management document Administrative Measures for the Recall of Defective Vehicles to clarify the recall implementation process. As previously disclosed in our public filings, in 2021, we carried out a recall for G3 model due to a possible power supply fault of the inverters installed on these vehicles. This recall was completed in July with a total of 13,399 units recalled and a reimbursement received from the supplier. As a result, the recall had no significant impact on XPeng's financial statements. The percentage of products recalled for safety and health reasons after being sold or shipped during the whole year was 9.7%2. XPENG + Product Quality Contingency Plan In view of situations such as extreme weather and sudden epidemics, XPeng has formulated a flexible handling plan to ensure the stability of product quality by strengthening the verification and inspection process of all aspects of quality control, and adding new control methods.

4.2.3. Product Safety XPeng Inc. has established a monitoring platform for NE V enterprises in accordance with the national standard set by the Technical Specifications of Remote Ser vice and Management System for Electric Vehicles . This platform can monitor the vehicle, power battery, driving motor, vehicle failure and other related information, all in real time. The platform has passed the testing by China's regulatory platform and obtained the conformity report from the National Monitoring and Management Platform for New Energy Vehicles . In 2021, we made functional safety one of the requirements for delivery control of quality gates of the development of new models, and we established functional safety teams in all corresponding professional systems . The new car design is developed in accordance with the C-NCAP (China-New Car Assessment Program) five-star rating, and the E-NCAP (European-New Car Assessment Programme) five-star rating. It also considers data design and structure simulation, collision simulation, and regulatory certification, to achieve full-process control and ensure product safety. XP E N G+ [Case]XPeng P7 awarded C-NCAP five-star rating On July 26, 2021, The China Automotive Technology and Research Center announced the results of a new round of C-NCAP testing, in which the XPeng P7 was awarded a five-star C-NCAP assessment rating with an exceptionally high score of 89. 4%. In terms of active safety, XPeng P7 scored 98.5%, becoming the highest scored EV model at the time, far exceeding the industry average. Superior Safety Structure Design 01 The body architecture employs a steel-aluminum hybrid structure, which greatly increases vehicle rigidity and effectively improves the transmission of crash force while remaining lightweight. 02 The front transverse arm is connected to the front end of the subframe, allowing the chassis to participate in collisions earlier, thus adding a transmission path for collision energy. 03 The steering system has been set closer to the front, allowing more room for collapse at the back of the front compartment. At the same time, precise tear control not only ensures that the rear end of the subframe does not move backwards as a whole, effectively preventing the intrusion of the battery pack, but also greatly reduces collision force and the peak of collision deceleration. Ultra-high Strength Material Applications 01 The body is composed of 16% ultra-high-strength steel, 13% thermoformed steel, and a large number of parts are thermo-formed to build a thermoformed body with 360-degree all-round protection. 02 The use of thermoformed materials is twice that of most models, and the number of parts which use thermoformed materials is 1.5 times that of luxury models.

(1)[Feature]Tackling Climate Change Through Green Transformation Climate change is a shared challenge for all humanity. In 2021, China vigorously promoted carbon peaks and carbon neutrality, and the Party Central Committee and the State Council issued the Working Guidance for Carbon Dioxide Peaking and Carbon Neutrality in Full and Faithful Implementation of the New Development Philosophy, which required building a green manufacturing system and accelerating the development of green manufacturing industries such as New Energy Vehicles. As a full-stack advanced driver-assistance system research smart vehicle brand, XPeng Inc. takes the initiative in advancing development in a lower-carbon and more sustainable direction, promoting carbon neutrality through scientific and technological progress, becoming a leader and pioneer in the field of green mobility, and tackling climate change with practical actions. We refer to the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) to disclose climate-related work plans and outcomes in four broad areas: governance, strategy, risk management, and target indicators. XPENG + Governance The Company continues to improve ESG management so as to improve the Company's sustainable development governance, and achieve long-term sustainable development. Established under the Company Board of Directors, the ESG Task Force oversees, reviews and addresses sustainability-related policies, measures, and related performance targets, including issues related to climate change. The ESG Task Force reports regularly to the Board, and it meets at least twice a year to discuss ESG-related issues, including climate change issues. The ESG Task Force may also seek expert advice on climate change from outside experts when needed. At the same time, a climate change team (carbon neutrality working group) was set up under the authority of the company president's office. Dr. Brian Gu, Vice Chairman and President, leads the executive departments to carry out work related to the project. Strategy According to the classification established by Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), there are two main types of risks caused by climate change: (1) physical risks due to extreme weather or temperature rise, and (2) transformational risks arising from market, regulatory, policy and other changes in response to climate change. The company deeply understands both the risks and the opportunities brought on by climate change, and we shoulder the responsibility of using scientific and technological progress to advance carbon neutrality. We promote the combination of emerging technologies with green and low-carbon industries to address the risks and challenges brought on by climate change, striving to contribute to sustainable development. Climate change risks and opportunities: identification and response Risk/Opportunity Type Possible Climate Change Risks and Opportunities to XPeng Response Laws and Policies Risks As companies move forward with increasing global awareness of the risks posed by climate change and face increased climate change-related regulatory and disclosure requirements, it will become necessary for companies to meet more compliance requirements as they grow globally. Set up carbon neutrality classes, tracking the dynamics of domestic and overseas regulations, and systematically sorting out carbon footprint and accounting, laying out a plan in advance to comply with carbon emission policy certifications in Europe and other overseas markets. Disclose sustainability reports on time and follow relevant disclosure standards. Technical Risks The general trend of low-carbon economic transformation has increased demand for low-carbon production, and may result in pressure to replace equipment in the short and medium term in order to meet new technology and process requirements. The market's push for low-carbon products will force companies to develop more low-carbon technologies and products, and increase related research and development investments. Establish and improve the energy management system, implement online energy monitoring and analysis, and continue to promote emission reduction with the goal of continuously reducing energy consumption of a single vehicle. Promote the reuse or dismantling and recycling of materials in order to reduce carbon production from raw materials. We also encourage the development and application of low-carbon alternative materials. Using low-carbon and lightweight parts. Market Risks The scarcity of non-renewable resources and energy is expected to increase the uncertainty of product cost and price, and the EV industry may face risks related to market acceptance and consumer choice in the medium and long term. Increasing prices of traditional energy will also impose higher costs on production facilities and result in challenges for companies trying to access renewable energy. Climate change has made people more aware of the carbon footprint of electric vehicles throughout their entire life cycle, and companies need to do a good job of battery recycling, which may have a certain impact on finances. Actively develop alternative materials to reduce dependence on single energy sources or material resources. Establishing projects to demonstrate carbon emission reduction, and develop and utilize clean energy sources, such as distributed photovoltaic power generation and high-voltage super charging.

Actively promote reduction of the carbon footprint resulting from the entire life cycle of electric vehicles and their industrial chain, creating a closed-loop of carbon emission reduction, and establishing a positive image of carbon neutrality in connection to XPeng Inc., thus creating long-term corporate and social value, and helping the brand to grow. Risk Management The Company has a well-established risk management framework and risk identification, assessment, and management process. Please refer to the Improving Risk Management section for details. In 2021, we incorporated climate change risks into our routine risk management, made efforts to identify, assess and respond to climate change risks, and reported the relevant matters to the Board of Directors. In view of the international, national and industry trends, we identified four major climate change risks and opportunities concerning the Company, including policy and law, technology, market and extreme weather. Based on the identified risks, the relevant departments of the Company assessed the impact of each risk under general and worst-case scenarios, developed alternative plans, and provided timely internal and external warnings. Indicators and Targets In November and December 2021, the 20.7 MW solar carport and roof power generation projects at the Zhaoqing production base were connected to the grid, and the photovoltaic power generation projects generated a total of 2.905 million kWh of electricity, equivalent to the reduction of 1,531 tonnes of CO2 emissions, exceeding the initial target of 1,200 tonnes. Going forward, we will systematically promote carbon neutrality, set short-, medium- and long-term carbon reduction targets, and steadily advance climate change management with regular target reviews and optimization. We develop carbon reduction measures for Scope 1, Scope 2, and Scope 3 to reduce life-cycle carbon emissions. For Scope 1, our manufacturing plants and business vehicles use almost no fossil energy such as gasoline or diesel; for Scope 2, we will keep promoting the construction and operation of photovoltaic projects, which are expected to satisfy 10% of the industrial electricity demand of the Zhaoqing plant. In the meantime, we promote energy conservation in offices to reduce carbon emissions from electricity use. For Scope 3, we limit unnecessary business trips to reduce carbon emissions from employee travel. XPENG + ZHAOQING ENVIRONMENTAL SOCIAL GOVERNANCE ENVIRONMENTAL SOCIAL GOVERNANCE

Our goal is to continuously reduce per unit disposal of both hazardous and non-hazardous waste generated in the manufacturing process and constantly improve the level of waste management in the future. 01 Sorting and collection We conduct monthly inspection of the classification of hazardous waste in the workshops to avoid mixing domestic waste and industrial waste into hazardous waste. 02 Well-organized transfer We have signed disposal contracts with qualified third-party hazardous waste disposal organizations, and prepared hazardous waste management plans, which are uploaded to the environmental supervision information platform of Guangdong province for solid waste. We have also established hazardous waste transfer forms and entry and exit records, and cleaned up hazardous waste in accordance with the Measures for the Management of Hazardous Waste Transfer to ensure compliance with laws and regulations. 03 Recycling Liner bags are inserted inside the paint buckets. Through measures such as empty bucket recovery and recycling, and drying and treatment of paint residue, the per-facility hazardous waste generation of the paint plant continues to drop.
