Huawei said it has not invested in any car companies and has no plans to do so
The Cyrus Huawei Smart Selection SF5 hybrid car recently unveiled by Huawei and Cyrus went to the first owners who placed pre-orders. The rest of the cars will be delivered by the end of July.
To recap, more than 3,000 pre-orders were placed for the Cyrus Huawei Smart Selection SF5 in just two days, and then the number of cars ordered rose to 10,000 units. The car has a peak power of 405 kW, maximum torque of 820 Nm, and takes 4.68 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h. In purely electric mode, the Cyrus Huawei Smart Selection SF5 can travel 180 km, and the full range exceeds 1,000 km. The car uses the Huawei Smart Cockpit, the Harmony OS operating system, the Kirin 990A mobile platform, and the Huawei sound system.
In this regard, Wang Jun, president of Huawei’s Smart Car Solutions Business Unit (BU), told Chinese media that “the world lacks suppliers of smart car technology, not car companies.”
He said there are plenty of car manufacturers in China and around the world, but there is still a clear lack of companies in the market that can supply advanced technology to automakers.
Huawei plans to start selling cars with its technology in 200 of its stores by the end of July 2021. By the end of the year, 1,000 Huawei stores will sell cars. Next year, sales of smart cars with Huawei technology will exceed 300,000 units.
