Huawei Electric Cars: recent updates on Huawei plans for 2021 reveals its plan to release electric cars before the end of 2021. A new report claims some models may even launch before the end of this year. But can Huawei’s electric cars compete against Elon Musk’s Tesla?
You know, it’s not totally surprising that Huawei may want to venture into the making of electric vehicles (EVs). Reason is because, the various bans from the US government has trunked the growth of Huawei’s smartphone business across the globe.
Hence is the diversification of its product portfolio. For example, in recent months, Huawei has placed a lot more focus on wearables and audio accessories. And next now, is electric cars.
And according to a new report, Huawei has reached out to Changan Automobile to use its car plants to make EVs. Chengan Automobile is Chinese state-owned automobile manufacturer headquartered in Chongqing. And its well-known for the production of passenger cars, microvans, commercial vans and light trucks.
For Huawei electric cars to see the light of the day, report has it too that the tech company is also in touch with BAIC Group’s BluePark New Energy Technology and other automakers, to use their car plants to make its EVs.
Huawei Electric Cars: The Company’s Response
It seems the reports about Huawei’s electric car is to be digestested stepwise. This is because a Huawei spokesman denied plans to design EVs or produce Huawei branded vehicles, saying that “Huawei is not a car manufacturer. However through ICT (information and communications technology), we aim to be a digital car-oriented and new-added components provider, enabling car OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) to build better vehicles”.
Huawei is not the only tech company to have shown interest in manufacturing electric vehicles. In the late quarter of yesteryear, Apple was strongly linked with electric cars production. Actually, this is just the beginning. More tech companies are expected to venture into EVs soon.
