Recently, Richard Yu had to go public to deny swirling rumors about Huawei and Ceres parting ways, and according to the information, the strongest statement possible from the two companies has now arrived. With the new joint venture, Huawei and Seres are getting closer and have ambitious plans with aggressive deadlines.
Both companies have now confirmed that their involvement in the joint venture will take EVs to the next level. Huawei will take responsibility for user demand insights and will use those to identify new products. The company will supply its know-how in digitalization, user experience and ADAS.
HarmonyOS will be the backbone
For the development of the upcoming EVs, the HarmonyOS will be the backbone of all vehicles from the joint venture and in general, Huawei will support Seres in manufacturing competitive products.
The two companies plan to manufacture and sell 1 million electric cars yearly, before the end of 2026. That is a huge number considering that the company sold only 80,041 vehicles in 2022 in China. Still, that’s six times more than it did a year before.
Huawei has another joint venture with Changan Automobile and CATL known as Avatr with its first EV, the Avatr 11, to be sold in Huawei’s showrooms as well.
