A couple of days ago, the CEO of Huawei BG and CEO of Smart Car solutions, Yu Chengdong was interviewed by a known automobile blogger @WuPei. In the interview, the official was asked about the company’s plans for the automobile market.
During the interview (Via ITHome), Wu Pei asked Yu Chengdong a number of questions, with one of the key ones being whether the official believed that Huawei’s success in the smartphone industry can be reflected within the automobile industry as well. In response to this, the Chinese tech giant’s executive stated that it is very likely since he believes that the three cornerstones to its success in the mobile industry are experience, quality, and brand.
The company already has experience within the automobile industry over its long years of partnership with carmakers. Apart from this, it will also ensure quality under its brand image.
Yu Chengdong further added that Huawei’s aim is to be the first smartphone brand to be fully invested in the automobile market. The company has a notable goal since nobody remembers the one that comes second, as per the executive.
For those unaware, Huawei has been working on diversifying its business operations after its mobile unit saw a decline due to sanctions by the US government. One of the new key areas of focus was automobiles. The company has already patented a number of technology related to the next generation of self driving technology and other related systems. So, it is clear that the brand has major plans for the future within the automobile segment.
