At the same time, both parties also struck a deal to conduct R&D or develop products based on Huawei's MDC (Mobile Data Center) platform.
Under the newly-forged partnership, JAC Motor wishes to endow its products with a higher level of intelligence based on a more advanced technical platform. Besides, by leveraging JAC's advantages in automotive industry and Huawei's merits in core technologies like 5G, AI and cloud, two companies plan to team up on intelligent driving, smart cockpit, electrification, connectivity and cloud service, aiming to monetize relevant products and solutions as soon as possible and boost the development of smart traffic.
Focusing on ICT technologies rather than building cars, Huawei is ambitious to become an increment parts supplier for intelligent-connected vehicles. So far, the eminent smart phone manufacturer has joined hands with a number of automakers, such as Volvo Cars, Great Wall Motor, BYD, BAIC BJEV and Sokon, to co-develop technologies of ICV, autonomous driving and electrification, fulfilling its pledge to merely serve as an automotive supplier with practical deeds.
“Just like imbuing an iron man with soul,” a WeChat user made such description in a comment on the post about the latest cooperation.
During the first eleven months of the year, JAC Motors sold 386,783 new cars with a year-on-year drop of 10.29%. A document published on December 11 revealed that the Anhui-based state-run automaker plans to produce and sell, respectively, 450,000 to 500,000 units of complete vehicles and chassis in 2020. The tie-up with Huawei is expected to make JAC's products more intelligent so as to boost sales in the future.
