Shanghai, China: It is not Apple or Xiaomi who are pioneers in enlivening the world automotive industry, but Huawei. This Chinese mobile manufacturer is the first to attend and they are ready to launch in April 2021.
In recent weeks, Huawei has reportedly released a car. But the car in question is not what you think.
This car will not be a Huawei branded vehicle. Huawei has repeatedly stated that it “doesn’t make cars” but aims to “help automotive companies make good cars”.
Yes, BAIC Blue Valley and Huawei will jointly launch ARCFOX HBT, the first ARCFOX aS HBT model. According to the official BAIC Blue Valley release, this product will arrive at the Shanghai Auto Show in April 2021. “HBT” itself stands for Huawei Bluepark Together.
Giz China noted, in September 2017, BAIC Group and Huawei announced deeper cooperation. BAIC New Energy and Huawei inaugurated the “1873 Davidson Innovation Laboratory” to jointly develop core technologies and build high-end smart electric vehicles.
BAIC Blue Valley stated in December 2020 that Huawei officially released 96 mid and long-range lidar product lines. Huawei’s lidar is rich in application scenarios, such as small/long-distance obstacles, short-range stoppages, near-end protrusions, tunnels, road junctions, dungeons, etc. This solution from Huawei also efficiently detects high-speed vehicles remotely.
Furthermore, Huawei plans to lower the price of its Lidar solution. He hopes to bring the price down by $ 195 or even $ 1,000. This information was released by Wang Jun, President of Huawei Smart Car Solutions BU.
