Huawei, once the most well-known brand of smartphones worldwide, has entered the electric car market.
Huawei and the large Chinese state-owned automaker BAIC, according to reports, will produce electric vehicles together under the BAIC brand name. Driver assistance technology and infotainment, which will be seen as electric cars employing Huawei technology, will be managed by Huawei.
According to a report from IT Home, Huawei and Huawei Company intend to launch a new brand of electric cars, and Huawei will be in charge of market distribution. Exclusively distributed and sold at Huawei’s previous product showrooms will be the new EV models.
The automobiles will be manufactured by BAIC, one of the sixth largest automakers in China. Huawei will provide technical support via the Huawei DriveONE platform. It will use a platform known as Jihu as the vehicle platform; this technology is also used in Wenje and Jihu vehicles.
It is also possible to use the Huawei Inside platform, which is already in use by some vehicle brands on the Chinese auto market. Huawei Inside, which can connect smart cars and smart homes, is supported by Huawei’s HarmonyOS smartphone. While Huawei will not produce its own vehicles, it will offer smart electric vehicles technical support.
The most recent Huawei technology is also used in smart electric cars that are now available on the market. This year, Huawei technology was used to create the Avatr 11, a 349,900 yuan electric vehicle.
