In fact, there are traces to follow before Xiaomi automobile settled in Beijing Economic Development Zone.
On September 1 this year, the national enterprise credit information publicity system showed that the registered address of Xiaomi Automobile Co., Ltd. was Beijing and the registration authority was the market supervision administration of Beijing Economic and Technological Development Zone. According to the industrial and commercial registration information, the registered residence is room 816, floor 8, building 5, yard 15, Kechuang 10th Street, Beijing Economic and Technological Development Zone, Beijing.
The reporter of the science and Innovation Board daily learned that after nearly 30 years of development and construction, Beijing Economic Development Zone has formed a high-tech and cutting-edge industrial development pattern based on the four leading industries of new generation information technology, high-end vehicles and new energy intelligent vehicles, biotechnology and great health, robotics and intelligent manufacturing, as well as emerging industries.
At present, Beijing Economic Development Zone has laid out complete vehicle enterprises such as Beijing Benz and BAIC new energy, built national technology innovation centers such as national innovation center and sinoauto Zhilian, and built high-level automatic driving demonstration areas.
In the first three quarters of this year, Beijing Economic Development Zone achieved a regional GDP of 193.48 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 38.8%, a total industrial output value of 424.36 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 32%, and the total industrial output value of the four leading industries was 403.74 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 33.0%. Among them, the high-end automobile and new energy intelligent automobile industry has become the "engine" to drive the economic growth of Beijing Economic Development Zone and the "vanguard" to build the main position of high-precision and cutting-edge industries.
Millet cars continued to attack, and the relevant territory gradually emerged
In the third quarterly report of this year, Xiaomi group said, "at present, our intelligent electric vehicle business is progressing smoothly, and the team members have exceeded 500. Xiaomi intelligent electric vehicle is expected to be officially mass produced in the first half of 2024."
At present, Xiaomi has gradually emerged the relevant car making territory by investing in the smart car industry chain.
According to the statistics of Guojin securities, by the end of September this year, there were 62 enterprises in the field of smart cars invested by Xiaomi. Among them, there are 17 enterprises with intelligent driving layout, 13 enterprises with intelligent electric layout and 6 enterprises with intelligent cockpit layout. Among them, 22 enterprises have made new investment this year.
Among them, automatic driving, millet bought the automatic driving company Shenzhen mobile technology, and invested in ADS (automatic driving system), ADAS (Advanced Driver assistance system) technology and product suppliers, technology, domestic laser radar start-ups, wo Sai technology, for car enterprises to provide L2-L4 level automatic driving "fusion perception + Intelligent Decision". Shanghai geometric partner of software and hardware integration system, etc.
In terms of power battery, Xiaomi has invested in Zhuhai Guanyu, Ganfeng lithium industry, honeycomb energy, AVIC lithium battery, etc.
In terms of chips, Xiaomi has invested in BYD semiconductor, Zhanxin electronics, canxin semiconductor, Yutai microelectronics, poly core microelectronics, yunyinggu technology, etc.
In terms of talent introduction, Lei Jun, chairman and CEO of Xiaomi group, released a group photo of 17 people on September 1 this year, which is also regarded by people in the industry as "the core member of Xiaomi", including Li Tianyuan, the appearance designer of BMW's flagship model IX; On September 7, Hu Zhengnan, former president of Geely Research Institute, joined Shun capital as an investment partner; In October this year, Yu Liguo, former president of Jihu automobile, was exposed to join Xiaomi group.
In this regard, an expert from the cheetah Research Institute analyzed it to the reporter of the science and Innovation Board daily, "Capital and technical requirements are the two major difficulties in making cars, and win-win cooperation is the king. Science and technology companies have technology and capital accumulation, but it takes too much human, financial and time to build cars from scratch. Therefore, realizing win-win cooperation is a more reasonable way for science and technology companies to enter the automotive field."
Meanwhile, the research of Guojin Securities believes that the shortcomings of Xiaomi's next car manufacturing lie in the lack of design and manufacturing capacity of the whole vehicle platform and the lack of accumulation of auto technology related to automatic driving. In the later stage, it may supplement the short board and establish a new long board through investment / M & A + endogenous incubation.
"2021 is a year of severe supply chain shortage," Tesla CEO Elon Musk shouted on his twitter in September. It is also worth noting that in the face of the global problem of "chip shortage", can Xiaomi build a car overcome relevant difficulties and proceed smoothly? For the latest progress of this matter, the reporter of science and Innovation Board daily will continue to pay attention to the report.
