“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.”
No design details have been revealed, but Huawei’s EVs are expected to be aimed at the mass-market, which implies they will rival models like the Tesla Model Y, Ford Mustang Mach-E, and Volkswagen ID.4. It remains to be seen if Huawei’s electric cars will be sold globally like Tesla’s upcoming Chinese-built electric city car. Huawei may not have any experience designing or building cars, but it has already developed technology for EVs including in-car software, sensors, and 5G communications hardware. It’s also one of several Chinese tech companies that wants to enter the EV industry and capitalize on the demand in China, the world’s largest EV market.
