According to the documents issued by Ren Zhengfei, the position of the BU department of the smart car solution is “as the main body of end-to-end business responsibility in the smart car field, providing ICT components and solutions for smart cars to help enterprises build good cars”. This is consistent with Huawei’s rotating chairman Xu Zhijun’s previous statement at the Shanghai Auto Show.
On April 17, Huawei participated in the auto show for the first time in history. At the Shanghai Auto Show, Xu Zhijun mentioned the boundary of Huawei's auto business: Huawei's original components, Huawei, will not do it. Huawei is committed to becoming an incremental component supplier for intelligent networked vehicles. “Huawei does not build cars. Will focus on ICT (information and communication) technology to help car companies build a good car.
Xu Zhijun also said: "We are not the same as BAT, they are software, we are more of components and platforms. ”

On May 29, Huawei and FAW Jiefang signed a cooperation agreement, and the two sides will further cooperate in 5G enabling areas such as car networking, smart driving, converged communications, cloud services, intelligent manufacturing and industrial internet.
According to an analysis released by several securities institutions, Huawei's ambition is to become a first-tier supplier of core integrated components in the automotive industry. In the future, Huawei will provide a standard product platform for autonomous driving and customized products according to the needs of manufacturers. Once this model is in place, it will bring disruptive changes to the automotive industry.
CITIC Securities expects that Huawei's sales of smart car electronic components are expected to reach the order of 50 billion US dollars in the next ten years, becoming the automotive electronics giant with Bosch.
