Xpeng’s former autonomous driving head joins Nvidia

Wu had led Xpeng’s autonomous driving development efforts from 2018 with more than 1,000 engineers in China and the United States.

Chinese automakers such as Xpeng have been big buyers of Nvidia’s chips as they equip their cars with intelligent systems. On Wednesday, Nvidia far exceeded expectations with its quarterly revenue forecast and said it was seeing demand from China surge.

Xpeng, which is among China’s top 20 best-selling EV makers, has been upgrading its advanced driver assistance software and has said it plans to make all of its functions available to drivers across China by 2024, as it seeks to gain an edge over U.S. rival Tesla TSLA.O

This month, Xpeng’s chairman He said in a social media post disclosing Wu’s departure from the company that he was looking forward to continuing to deepen cooperation with Wu in areas including chips.
