The Xpeng is weird. The type-2 connector is the wrong gender so you need to use a cable with a male plug at both ends.

Just baffling...

I think this is because it is a Chinese car and not actually European spec. If it was, likely it would have CCS. I could be wrong on this..

I agree completely. And there's no physical room for a CCS socket which will be a pain for them. Weird they used the wrong gender connector though.
