According to the posts, the new cooperative model will be built on BAIC Group’s ARCFOX platform, but will not fall under the ARCFOX brand. The car can be expected to be sold via Huawei’s distribution network and officially hit the market in 2024.
ARCFOX responded to the matter that, "we don't have all the relevant information yet. Please refer to the information released by official channels in the future."
Notably, ARCFOX already has a Huawei-powered vehicle model on the market, namely, the ARCFOX αS HI model, which was built under the ICT giant’s HUAWEI Inside cooperation pattern.
To illustrate, as an ICT player, HUAWEI’s involvement in automaking can be concluded into three cooperation modes, HUAWEI Inside (like the ARCFOX αS HI model), HUAWEI Smart Selection (like the SERES SF5 model), and general auto parts supply (HarmonyOS, and domain controllers).
Cooperation through the HUAWEI Smart Selection pattern usually means that HUAWEI will be deeply involved in the design, supply, and distribution process of the vehicle model. The cooperative models will also be showcased and sold via HUAWEI’s offline retail stores. During the cooperation process, the automaker's role often lean into the platform R&D and vehicle manufacturing.
