Shanghai (Gasgoo)- Huawei has decided to put its Smart Car Solution business unit (BU) under the charge of Consumer business group (BG)’s management committee, according to an document posted on Xingsheng Community, Huawei's official employee community platform, on Nov. 25.
Currently, Huawei possesses three major BGs, namely the Carrier, the Enterprise and Consumer BGs, and two BUs—the Cloud & AI and the Smart Car Solutions. Each BU is supervised by a management committee or an investment decision-making committee, which have the right to conduct examination and approval over the resources and manpower required by specific businesses, according to a person familiar with Huawei’s internal operating structure.
Since the foundation in May 2019, Huawei's Smart Car Solution BU was under the management of the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Management Committee. It focuses on five aspects, namely smart driving smart cockpit, intelligent network, intelligent electrification and cloud services.
The newly-issued document also noted the investment review board (IRB) of the Consumer BG will be restructured to the IRB for intelligent terminal and smart car parts businesses, which will take over the investment decision-making and portfolio management of smart car parts business from ICT IRB, and be headed by Yu Chengdong, CEO of Huawei's Consumer BG.
The business structure adjustment is made to improve the interaction of the technologies and resources between Huawei’s smart auto parts and intelligent terminal businesses, Huawei said.
"Huawei will not make cars. Focusing on developing ICT technologies, Huawei will enable car manufacturers to build better smart vehicles,” the company reiterated in the document, as it takes the development of ICT infrastructures as its biggest historical mission despite the continuous change in external environment.
Huawei said earlier this month it would join hands with Changan Auto and CATL to launch an all-new upmarket car brand, and the first model under the brand would soon go into mass production.
“We will make joint efforts to strengthen made-in-China products and technologies, and offer users better travelling experience with our intelligent mobility solutions,” said Yu Chengdong.
