On November 21, he Xiaopeng, chairman of the board of Xiaopeng automobile, made a microblog, which caused heated discussion. It seems that the next generation autopilot architecture of Xiaopeng, which includes lidar, was released yesterday, which made someone in the west very upset and used Pigu continuously to make sound. What I want to say is that rumor has long proved impossible to defeat any competitor. Starting from next year, in Chinas automatic driving, you should be prepared to be beaten by us and unable to find the East. As for the international, we will meet.
He Xiaopengs Micro blog is suspected to respond to comments made by Tesla CEO Musk on Xiaopeng. Netizens believe that he Xiaopengs so-called someone in the west refers to musk.

They have Teslas old software, not our latest neural network computer, Musk said on twitter
And musk also answered a netizens question about whether Xiaopeng car copied Teslas old code. Yes, they also stole Apples code..
The stage of mutual connection
There is a long history of resentment on both sides
As a matter of fact, Xiaopeng and Tesla have long been married.
In March 2019, Tesla sued Xiaopeng automobile for plagiarizing the code of autopilot, and sued Cao Guangzhi, who was a senior engineer of Tesla and later became the perception director of Xiaopeng automobile. According to foreign media reports, former Tesla engineer Cao Guangzhi admitted in a court document this week that he would upload a zip file containing the autopilot source code to his icloud account in late 2018, while he was still working for the company. But in the same document, Cao denied stealing Teslas sensitive information. His legal team argued that he made an effort to delete any such Tesla documents before leaving Tesla..
According to the securities times, by December 2019, cleantechnica published an article entitled independent research and development of automatic driving technology of Xiaopeng automobile, keeping its low price. Musk commented in a sarcastic tone, independent research and development, and attached two smiling and crying expressions. Less than an hour later, in a reply to a netizen, musk said, Xiaopengs autopilot software is really our inspiration, but this is an old version of Tesla software, so the effect is limited..
