CMA’s first SUV production next year "Jiwo effect" is gradually emerging.

Geely and Volvo’s "marriage" has entered the fifth year, and its "brotherly" synergistic effect is gradually expanding.

According to media reports, the first new car, which was born under the Compact Modular Architecture jointly developed by Geely and Volvo, will be rolled off the assembly line next year. According to Yang Xueliang, public relations director of Geely Automobile, the model will be a medium-sized SUV.

Last year, in the strategic transformation of returning to "one Geely", Geely encountered pains brought by the reform of marketing system and personnel adjustment. However, with the release of Borui, the first mid-to high-end car after its strategic transformation, and the launch of the first model under the CMA framework next year, Geely, which has been expected to see its own improvement after the acquisition of Volvo, is gradually taking shape.

First medium-sized SUV

According to reports, as the first model born in CMA modular architecture will be rolled off the assembly line next year, Geely is in full swing to build a new team. At the same time, Geely also intends to create a brand-new brand.

"What will be born in the CMA module architecture next year will be an A+ SUV." Yang Xueliang told Times Weekly that the models born in this module in the future will exist as high-end models of Geely, mainly competing with joint venture models.

As for whether these models will continue to hang Geely’s LOGO in the future, Yang Xueliang told the Times Weekly reporter that the company is still inconclusive. "Or it will have its own unique LOGO like Toyota’s flagship model Crown, but it will definitely not be as independent as Lexus."

In September 2013, Geely Automobile and Volvo Automobile, a subsidiary of Geely Holding Group, jointly established China Euro Vehicle Technology (hereinafter referred to as CEVT), and one of its key tasks is CMA new cars. The platform architecture will be derived from Geely and Volvo’s next-generation C-class (European standard, equal to China A-class or compact car) and B-class (European standard, equal to China A0-class or small car) models.

"CMA is an infrastructure module jointly developed by Geely and Volvo, and it is not a concept with FE platform and KC platform. Because the FE platform and KC platform are mainly based on Geely’s own development models, CMA is a brand new modular architecture. " Yang Xueliang told the Times Weekly reporter.

In fact, the modular universal platform has become the development trend of global car companies. A Volvo spokesman once said: "If you are creating a new architecture in the automobile industry, you need to build sustainable models, because this is a modern means to cut costs. An obvious example is the Volkswagen MQB platform, and of course we are doing similar things. "

Some insiders analyzed that the new modular architecture is universal and modular, which can form scale effect in R&D, testing and spare parts procurement, and it is a key means for car companies to cut costs and then enhance their competitiveness.

At the same time, according to Geely, the model born in CMA architecture in the future is equipped with a three-cylinder engine developed by Volvo and authorized by Geely. According to the data, the Drive-E three-cylinder 1.5L turbocharged gasoline engine developed by Volvo has a maximum power of 180 HP, and its carbon dioxide emission fully meets the future Euro VII emission standard. It is reported that this model will be produced in Geely’s Taizhou factory.

After Geely launches the first model with CMA architecture next year, Volvo also plans to launch XC40 based on this modular architecture in 2018 to cope with competitors such as Audi Q3 and BMW X1. Subsequently, Volvo will launch a new generation of V40 hatchback and a new compact car S40 based on CMA platform. At the same time, Volvo also expects to shorten the product cycle as much as possible through the real sharing between SPA and CMA platform architectures.

Sales picked up.

Last year, after Geely announced the return of "One Geely", it also launched three new platform architectures, namely FE platform, KC platform and CMA modular architecture. It is reported that these brand-new vehicle platforms have outstanding product expansibility, comprehensive power system selection, high commonality of parts and components, and can be derived from new energy vehicles. In the future, the products produced by each platform will have various types such as hatchback, sedan, Cross and SUV.

For example, Borui, a mid-to high-end car recently launched, was born on the KC platform developed by Geely itself. According to An Conghui, CEO and President of Geely Group (participation, pictures and inquiry), in an interview with the media, the products of Geely KC platform in the future are all called Borui, and a series of products will be launched later. At the same time, the old products will be gradually integrated, such as the future King Kong series and Panda series, leaving only one series.

Similarly, under the framework of CMA module, Geely also expects to build higher-quality vehicles to cope with the competition from joint venture car companies. This is also the goal that Geely finally expects to achieve after the acquisition of Volvo. "In the future, Geely’s brand will be transformed from making cars that ordinary people can afford to making boutique cars for everyone." An Conghui said.

According to the latest February production and sales report released by Geely Automobile, Geely sold a total of 33,138 cars in February this year, up 54.7% from the same period last year. In the first two months of this year, Geely sold a total of 92,022 vehicles, a sharp increase of 67.8% compared with 54,850 vehicles in the same period of 2014.

To Geely’s delight, the sales volume of New Emgrand and EC7 reached 39,379 vehicles in the first two months of this year, a sharp increase of 105.2% compared with 19,189 vehicles in 2014, and it is still the largest sales model of Geely. At the same time, the cumulative sales volume of GX7, SX7 and GX9 in the first two months of this year was 12,134 vehicles, up 126% year-on-year. In the first two months, the sales volume of Vision sedan also reached 18,800. Geely, which has survived the transition stage, seems to have ushered in the best time of development.

Borui, which will be listed in April, is also highly anticipated by Geely. According to the plan, Borui’s sales volume is expected to reach 10,000 vehicles from 2,000 vehicles and 5,000 vehicles per month. Although there have been no successful examples of independent brands in the breakthrough war of mid-to high-end cars, Geely, which intends to start this transformation war with Borui, is full of confidence.

With the production of CMA-based vehicles coming off the assembly line next year, it is worth looking forward to whether Geely, which has reached a certain level in quality, can gain sales and reputation in the highly competitive China auto market.

When the M5 EV goes on the market, is the "head horse" of the series coming?

On September 6th, at the autumn conference of Huawei Mate50 series and new products in the whole scene, AITO brand released the pure electric SUV-Wenjie M5 EV. Although the M5 has always been questioned for adopting "backward extended program technology", it has made great contributions to the delivery of the M 5 series in August for the first time. The arrival of the pure electric version is undoubtedly another proof of its own strength.What’s the difference between M5 EV and M5 EV?

In appearance, as a pure electric vehicle, it doesn’t need a huge air intake grille, so the front face is designed with a closed dynamic shark nose, and both sides are equipped with racing-class side-wall diversion air inlets, which is more in line with the style of a pure electric SUV. At the same time, with the headlight group with the shape of "Lion Wake", the overall shape is more concise and full, and it has obvious recognition compared with the extended-range model.

In addition, the new car also adopts the design of hidden door handles, 20-inch aerodynamic wheels and active air intake grille, which brings ultra-low wind resistance of 0.266Cd, which is conducive to improving endurance performance. In terms of color, the exterior color matching is inspired by the dawn powder and warm nebula in the sky, and the interior color matching is added with the unique bird feather red of M5 EV. The elegant and advanced color matching brings a more fashionable feeling.

In terms of power, the Wujie M5 EV is equipped with HUAWEI DriveONE pure electric drive intelligent platform. The total power of the front AC asynchronous motor+rear permanent magnet synchronous Huawei motor four-wheel drive combination is 365kW, and the acceleration of 100 kilometers is 4.55 seconds. It cooperates with the front double wishbone+rear H-arm multi-link aluminum alloy independent suspension combination, and is equipped with HUAWEI DATS dynamic adaptive torque system for the first time, which further improves driving comfort, handling and vehicle endurance.

AITO family’s first pure electric vehicle equipped with HarmonyOS 3 inherits the smooth and easy-to-use features, adds dual-screen collaboration and mobile phone collaboration functions, and provides a worry-free car and charging experience with smart charging. Fourth, the improvement of safety performance: the M5 EV adopts high-standard safety body design, and the key parts of the vehicle body are made of thermoformed steel, which can withstand the pressure of over 1500MPa and ensure the integrity of the cockpit to the greatest extent in the event of collision; The battery core adopts cathode material with high thermal stability and diaphragm fireproof coating technology, and the battery pack meets the IPX9K level of spray characteristics of high-pressure water gun, ensuring battery safety in extreme cases.

What is the market prospect of M5 EV?

These are the highlights of the M5 EV. Especially for the adaptive dynamic torque system, Yu Chengdong is more confident, and his words are not surprising. At the press conference, he said that "at present, there are only two companies in the world, and Huawei". Among the two companies, Huawei is "far ahead".

Perhaps it is the rising sales of the brand in the world that gives Yu Chengdong great confidence. On August 24th, at the delivery ceremony of the M7, Yu Chengdong said: "The M5 EV is the SUV with the highest value in the world." Huangpo’s marketing method of selling melons and boasting has a certain effect on the promotion of new cars. According to Celestial’s announcement, the delivery volume of AITO series reached 10,045 vehicles in August, and the monthly delivery volume exceeded 10,000 for the first time, increasing by 1,277.91% year-on-year. It is the fastest growing smart electric vehicle brand in China. However, extended-range electric vehicles are generally regarded as a transitional product, and pure electric vehicles are the mainstream of the market. Therefore, the M5 EV must be put on the agenda as soon as possible in the product planning of the international brand.

Compared with the extended-range power, the pure electric SUV needs a larger battery pack, and has higher requirements on the three-electric system, body structure and safety performance, so the technical difficulty is by going up one flight of stairs. The launch of the M5 EV is undoubtedly the proof of the advanced ability of the current brand in multi-dimensional integration and optimization, and it already has the comprehensive technical essentials of pure electric SUV, bringing consumers more economical car purchase options.

From the pricing point of view, the price of the standard version of the Wujie M5 EV is 288,600 yuan, and the performance version is 319,800 yuan, which is not much different from the extended-range version. Therefore, for consumers, the choice of car purchase depends on their own use environment. Consumers who can own their own charging piles or have complete and convenient charging facilities around them naturally choose pure electric vehicles, and vice versa, choose extended-range models to enjoy longer endurance on the premise of ensuring good car economy. After the listing, the competitors faced by M5 EV are mainly concentrated on Tang EV, Model Y and ID.6 X series. At present, and have a high brand influence, and the sales volume is rising, but the 300,000 pure electric SUV market is not crowded. Based on the expanding market demand, the new car will have a very good potential.

The current order performance is also very good, which has created this point. In a short period of time, Huawei has more than 30,000 order users of M5 EV, which is enough to prove the attractiveness of the new car. Then, while the orders are pouring in, what is more challenging is the production and delivery capacity of M5 EV. At present, it is in the peak season of sales of gold, nine silvers and ten silvers, and it is also the peak season of buying cars years ago. With the promotion of its own strength and market environment, the M5 EV, which was born at the right time, has helped the sales growth of the brand, and even become the main model of the brand. Such a bright market prospect also makes Yu Chengdong’s big mouth smile more brilliantly. From September 6th, the real car will be displayed in Huawei stores and Celestial User Center, and the test drive will be officially started on September 24th. AITO brand has covered more than 820 Huawei experience centers and Sailis user centers in more than 180 cities. It is estimated that by the end of 2022, the number of experience centers and user centers will expand to more than 1,200.

With such a huge sales network, many new car-making forces are hard to catch up with. AITO brand can gain huge market exposure with a small publicity and marketing cost. Besides stores, it can also spread the M5 EV to major consumers in a short time. Which car brand can do it at present? Therefore, AITO brand can rise in a short time, and besides its own strength, a perfect sales and service network is also indispensable.

As a commodity with long life cycle, complex parts and changeable use environment, automobile is also very important for quality test. If the quality of AITO brand can provide users with a continuous and good car cycle, it will be of great benefit to the development of the brand. As a pure electric SUV born at the right time, the M5 EV is now ready, and we will wait and see the next market performance.

The first batch of new energy vehicle batteries are facing "retirement": recycling is not easy.

  The first batch of new energy vehicle batteries are facing "retirement": recycling is not easy.

  [Ecological Focus]

  With the dual drive of policy and market, China’s new energy vehicle market has experienced explosive growth in the past 10 years. However, it should not be ignored that the first batch of power batteries for new energy vehicles are aging, and a "retirement tide" of power batteries is coming.

  According to the quality assurance ability of 20% battery decay in 8 years of general vehicle manufacturers, China has ushered in a rapid increase in the number of retired power batteries for new energy vehicles since 2017. It is estimated that the number of retired batteries will reach 9.3 billion watt-hours in 2025, and the number of retired batteries will increase by more than 1 million orders of magnitude every year. This will bring huge potential market value of ladder utilization. If the retired batteries are recycled according to the method of first step and then regeneration, it is estimated that the total market size will reach 37.9 billion yuan by 2025.

  As we all know, batteries contain a variety of heavy metal elements, which will cause environmental harm if not handled properly. What will happen when the waste power battery has a huge potential market scale and meets the recycling market system that needs to be improved? What are the "blocking points" that need to be opened?

  1. Value and risk of a "retired" power battery

  According to the national standard of new energy vehicles, power batteries can often be "retired" with more than 80% remaining. This makes the power battery still have great use value after it is retired from the vehicle, which not only forms a huge potential market, but also means certain environmental risks.

  "Generally speaking, after the service life of power batteries is 5-8 years, we encourage ‘ Retired ’ Step use of battery. Although the battery’s cruising range is reduced, it can’t meet the needs of vehicles, but it can be recycled for other energy storage needs, and it can still continue ‘ Service ’ For a while, you can also choose the recycling of batteries in the future. " Jia Jingchun, an associate professor at the School of Chemistry and Environmental Sciences of Inner Mongolia Normal University, introduced.

  Liu Wanmin, an associate professor at material chemistry of Hunan Institute of Technology, told the reporter: "‘ Retired ’ Power batteries can be widely used in power system energy storage, backup power supply for communication base stations, low-speed electric vehicles and small distributed household energy storage, wind and solar complementary, electric forklifts and other fields. Generally, it can be used to about 60% of the initial capacity of the battery. According to different usage scenarios, the service life can range from several months to several years. "

  It still has the use value of several years, which makes "step by step utilization first, then recycling" become the first choice for recycling "retired" power batteries. Cascade utilization refers to the application of "retired" power batteries in other fields. Recycling is to disassemble, crush and screen the "retired" battery, and extract lithium, cobalt, nickel and other metal elements from the battery by leaching hydrometallurgy or pyrometallurgy, and use them in the production of secondary batteries.

  The reporter learned that power batteries contain metal elements such as lithium, cobalt, manganese and nickel, and the cost of raw materials accounts for 50%~70% of the total cost. The lithium salt and cobalt salt consumed by power batteries have become the largest proportion in all application fields of lithium and cobalt. With the rapid consumption of primary resources, the recovery of secondary resources should reach the corresponding level. Since the release of National Mineral Resources Planning (2016-2020), China has reserved rare earth metal minerals as strategic resources. Therefore, recycling metal elements in power batteries can not only better develop circular economy, but also effectively alleviate China’s long-term dependence on such resources.

  However, Jia Jingchun also pointed out that lithium batteries contain heavy metals such as lithium, and some batteries use organic electrolytes and organic separators. Different from the simple recycling method of traditional lead-acid batteries, the metal recycling process of lithium-ion batteries is relatively complicated. Once improperly operated, these heavy metals and organic electrolytes will bring serious threats to the environment.

  "After the battery is dismantled, we generally use hydrometallurgy or pyrometallurgy to recycle lithium, nickel, cobalt and other metal elements. Improper disassembly will lead to many problems such as safety, environment and resources. From the safety point of view, there are hidden dangers such as electric shock, short-circuit explosion and hydrofluoric acid corrosion. From the environmental point of view, there are heavy metal pollution such as cobalt and nickel, fluorine pollution and white pollution caused by battery diaphragm. From the perspective of resources, there is a waste of high-priced resources such as lithium, nickel and cobalt. " Liu Wanmin said.

  2. Battery recycling enterprises face three major challenges.

  Although the recycling potential is huge, at present, there is no leading enterprise in the power battery recycling market, and even some chaos has occurred. Earlier, some media reported that many host manufacturers have established battery recycling business. However, some power batteries did not flow into the formal channels, but were bought at high prices by unqualified and highly polluting small factories and improperly treated, causing hidden dangers of secondary environmental pollution. Why is this so?

  "First, at present, users of new energy vehicles are not strong enough to recycle power batteries; Second, the recycling price of some small workshops is much higher than that of regular recycling enterprises; Third, the enterprises that recycle batteries have high qualification requirements, which leads to a limited number of formal recycling enterprises; Fourth, the recycling technology is immature and the recycling business model lacks innovation. " Liu Wanmin analyzed.

  Among them, the ladder utilization and recycling is the most difficult. Although China has become the country with the best development of new energy vehicles in the world, power battery is still a new technology. In the eyes of the industry, enterprises still face three major challenges in battery recycling: inconvenient battery disassembly, unknown residual value of battery health and low economic benefits.

  The complexity of "retired" batteries is high. Different power batteries have different internal and external structural designs, module connection methods and process technologies, and only have square, cylindrical, soft bag and other shapes. This directly led to the later disassembly work can not be large-scale operation, which increased the difficulty of disassembly and labor costs. If the operation is improper, it is more likely that short circuit will cause fire or explosion, leakage will pollute the surrounding environment and threaten the health of employees, resulting in casualties and property losses.

  At present, there is no data record of the usage of some "retired" power batteries, only the original data when they leave the factory, and the usage process and current state are unknown. Before the power battery is used step by step, each module must be tested, which greatly increases the cost of the enterprise. At the same time, based on the limited data, the prediction of the remaining life is not accurate enough, which will undoubtedly increase the quality risk of the products.

  The above factors make the economic benefit of recycling power batteries low. A staff member of a battery recycling enterprise told the reporter that the small workshop gave up many key links such as detection and discharge in battery recycling, and the operators did not receive professional training, so the operating cost was much lower than that of regular enterprises, thus having more room for bargaining power and battery acquisition cost, which caused vicious competition with regular enterprises.

  3. The maintenance traceability of the "ID card" of the power battery has not been smooth.

  In fact, as early as 2016, China has issued the "Implementation Plan for Extended Producer Responsibility System", requiring the establishment of a recycling system for electric vehicle power batteries. The plan points out that electric vehicle and power battery manufacturers should be responsible for establishing a waste battery recycling network, recycling waste batteries through after-sales service network, and publishing recycling information to ensure standardized recycling and safe disposal of waste batteries. Power battery manufacturers should implement product coding and establish a full life cycle traceability system.

  On July 31, 2018, the national monitoring platform for new energy vehicles and the comprehensive management platform for the traceability of power batteries (hereinafter referred to as "the national traceability management platform") was launched. The platform was built by the National Engineering Laboratory for Electric Vehicles of Beijing Institute of Technology, and its main function was to collect information and monitor the whole process of power batteries’ production, sales, use, scrapping, recycling and utilization, so as to realize that the source of power batteries can be traced, the destination can be traced and the nodes can be controlled.

  At present, the national traceability platform has collected more than 5.6 million vehicle information data, including new energy passenger cars, buses, special vehicles, etc., and the total number of supporting batteries exceeds 8.9 million, with batteries exceeding 28 billion watt-hours. It involves more than 290 new energy vehicle manufacturers and more than 180 battery companies.

  The establishment of the whole life cycle traceability system means that every car’s battery has its own "ID card". But why do batteries still flow into small workshops? Some insiders pointed out that although China has established a traceability management system, due to the lack of mandatory policies, enterprises have problems such as serious lag, incompleteness and difficulty in traceability when reporting data. At the same time, the current policies and regulations are not binding on how car owners deal with batteries, which also gives small workshops an opportunity to buy power batteries.

  "In 2015, China’s technical policy has clearly stated that a power battery coding system will be established. The Interim Measures for the Management of Recycling in 2018 proposed the establishment of a power battery traceability information management system, coding technical standards and related information sharing mechanisms. However, in reality, there are many types and quantities of enterprises involved, such as battery manufacturers, battery maintenance and replacement institutions, battery leasing enterprises, and cascade utilization enterprises. The battery life cycle is as long as several years, and coding maintenance is difficult. " Liu Wanmin said.

  Jia Jingchun said: "Professional battery recycling is a large-scale system engineering. How to recycle requires coordination from all sides, especially the cooperation of automobile manufacturers, battery manufacturers and related extension industries. Once a link in the whole cycle is unreasonable, it will inevitably lead to problems of lag and other derivatives in recycling. "

  4. The national standard system for battery recycling still needs to be improved.

  By the end of 2020, China’s National Standardization Administration Committee has issued five national standards for the recycling of vehicle batteries, basically forming a standard system framework. In addition, the regulatory policies for the recycling of power batteries, the relevant standards of the echelon industry and the industry regulatory system are also being improved. However, some insiders pointed out that most of the standards currently issued are recommended standards, and there are problems such as insufficient binding force and lack of superior law in the implementation process.

  "At present, new energy owners are interested in ‘ Retired ’ In fact, most people are still vague about how to dispose of batteries. Some car companies have introduced battery replacement, such as full mileage or ‘ Service ’ Time for battery replacement and recycling. However, the large-area battery life of new energy vehicles has not yet arrived. " Jia Jingchun said that he pointed out that over time, new energy owners will gradually become more experienced in how to properly handle power batteries. "At present, we should establish corresponding supervision and legislation to ensure that used batteries can be returned to manufacturers or recycling enterprises. At the same time, the supervision of battery production and use must be formed. After leaving the factory, traceability, use tracking and battery destination after use all need a set of supervision mechanisms. "

  Many experts in the industry pointed out that in order to speed up the recycling of power batteries, in addition to strengthening the implementation of the producer extension system, there are still three aspects to be improved in the future: first, we must strengthen publicity and raise consumers’ awareness of environmental protection; Second, we should formulate policies to subsidize or reward enterprises that actively participate in battery recycling, and at the same time crack down on non-compliant recycling; The third is to speed up the transformation of intelligent equipment in enterprises, improve the efficiency of battery recycling, reduce the recycling cost through economies of scale, improve the bargaining power of enterprises, and provide effective protection for the normal operation of enterprises, thus fundamentally solving the industrial problems of high cost and low profit and guiding the further standardization of battery recycling.

  As many batteries go online, there are many batteries to be "retired". As an important part of the development of new energy vehicle industry in the future, the healthy and standardized development of power batteries is very important.

  This year’s government work report mentioned that the construction of power battery recycling system will be accelerated. At the national level, China has accelerated the legislative process of power battery recycling. In addition, the reporter learned that on March 29, 2021, the national evaluation and trading platform for "retired" power batteries of new energy vehicles (also known as battery house) was established in Foshan City, Guangdong Province.

  The platform will aggregate the resources of the National Engineering Laboratory for Electric Vehicles, the National Monitoring and Management Platform for Battery Traceability and the specialized committee for recycling new energy batteries, and strive to maximize the battery utilization rate. Based on the blockchain technology, it will provide many services for new energy automobile enterprises, such as performance evaluation of big data power batteries, offline laboratory testing and online trading of power batteries, and it is also expected to help solve the industrial problems such as difficult recycling, limited sales channels and lack of rapid performance testing technology in the recycling of power batteries.

Deep thinking on the cooperation between Huawei and Changan Automobile: Huawei disenchants and rewrites the pattern

On November 23, Changan Automobile’s share price suddenly hit the daily limit. It is rumored that Changan Automobile will invest 300 billion yuan in Huawei BU, which is valued at nearly one trillion yuan. But soon, both sides denied the news.

However, at around 16:30 pm on November 27th, Changan Automobile officially announced that it signed the Memorandum of Investment Cooperation with Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Huawei) in Longgang District, Shenzhen, Guangdong Province on November 25th.

"After consultation between the two parties, Huawei intends to set up a company engaged in R&D, design, production, sales and service of automotive intelligent systems and component solutions. The company intends to invest in the target company and carry out strategic cooperation. Both parties jointly support the target company to become an industry leader in automotive intelligent systems and component solutions based in China and facing the world." Chang’ an Automobile announced.

At the same time, Huawei Auto official website also released the article "Memorandum of Investment Cooperation between Huawei and Changan Automobile", which disclosed in detail the general situation of the cooperation between Huawei and Changan, including that the leaders of both parties attending the signing ceremony were "top-notch", and the speeches of their respective leaders also showed the general ideas of both sides on this cooperation.

"The new company will be committed to becoming a world-class leader in the automotive intelligent driving system and parts industry, and as an open platform serving the automotive industry, it will open its equity to investors such as existing strategic partner car companies and strategic car companies, and become a company with diversified equity." Huawei mentioned the development goals of the new company in its official press release.

Moreover, the speeches of two Huawei executives are worth pondering.

Xu Zhijun, Huawei’s rotating chairman, said: "Huawei insists on not building cars, but gives full play to its ICT technology advantages and marketing capabilities to help car companies build and sell good cars. We will continue to fulfill our commitments to customers and partners and jointly promote the rise of the automobile industry. "

Yu Chengdong, managing director of Huawei and chairman of BU, a smart car solution, said: "We have always believed that China needs to build an electric and intelligent open platform with a’ locomotive’. We deepen cooperation with Changan, and at the same time, we will work together with more strategic partner car companies to continuously explore new models of openness and win-win, and jointly seize the opportunity of electrification and intelligent transformation of the automobile industry to realize the dream of the rise of China’s automobile industry. "

Based on the above public information, we will get the following effective information:

1. Xu Zhijun once again stressed that "Huawei insists on not making cars". This sentence means that Huawei won’t have an independent car brand when the dust settles.

2. "Give full play to its own ICT technology advantages and marketing capabilities to help car companies build and sell good cars." The second half of Xu Zhijun’s sentence left a hole in the current "HarmonyOS Zhixing", that is, the so-called Huawei’s intelligent car selection business, which means that Huawei will still cut into the vehicle sales business, but the definition is "helping enterprises".

3. The business scope of the new company includes intelligent driving solutions for automobiles, intelligent cockpit for automobiles, intelligent digital platform for automobiles, intelligent Che Yun, AR-HUD and intelligent lights, etc. In principle, the components and solutions within the business scope are provided by the new company for vehicle customers, and Huawei does not engage in businesses that compete with Changan Automobile’s business scope in principle.This means the substantial divestiture of BU, and the entire technical assets will be transferred to the new company, but the core of the new company is parts, which further clarifies the basic principle that Huawei does not build complete vehicles.

4. The new company will gradually open its equity to investors such as existing strategic partners, car companies and car companies with strategic value, and become a company with diversified equity.There is a premise behind this sentence that Huawei will give no more than 40% of the shares of the new company to its partners. Changan Automobile is the first company, but it is not the only one. Later, it should include several partners including Cyrus, Chery, BAIC and Jianghuai.

After understanding the cause and effect, let’s think about why Huawei did this, and why did the first partner choose Changan Automobile?

There is no doubt that Huawei’s way of separating the smart car solution BU from Huawei’s big group is a bit like the glory of that year, but the decision-making starting point is completely different. But the basic idea is that this institution, which is almost independent of Huawei’s existing ICT (information, communication and technology) business, needs to be separated from Huawei’s big system, so as to achieve self-growth and hematopoiesis by seeking independent development, rather than relying on Huawei’s big tree.

It is reported that Huawei has invested more than $3 billion in smart car solutions, with a research and development team of 7,000 people, and 70%-80% of the invested funds are invested in the field of intelligent driving. However, according to the financial report released by Huawei, Huawei’s revenue in smart car solution BU in 2022 was about 2.077 billion yuan, accounting for only 0.3% of Huawei’s total revenue.

It can be seen that if Huawei’s smart car solution business only relies on China’s own investment, the presence of the entire BU will still not be too strong. However, if the investment in car BU is terminated at this time, it means that the previous tens of billions of investments and Huawei’s leading edge in the field of smart driving will be wasted.

At this time, the introduction of external investors can solve the problem of continuous investment in the BU business sector for Huawei, and also keep Huawei and China car companies in the leading position in the field of smart cars.

In fact, Huawei has solved another problem through the independence of BU, a smart car solution: China car companies are unwilling to sell their "soul" to "a potential competitor", which is also the reason that hinders the popularization of Huawei smart car solutions in China car companies, not to mention intervening in the supply chain system of joint venture car companies.

For a long time, the argument that Huawei does not build cars has always been controversial.

On the one hand, Huawei executives headed by Xu Zhijun always stressed that "Huawei does not build cars" and even once asked Huawei terminal stores to remove misleading posters such as "Huawei cars". Moreover, in the interview with Ren Zhengfei, the founder of Huawei, it can be seen that Huawei does not want to seize all the profits of an industry, and they are more willing to set aside profits for partners.

On the other hand, Yu Chengdong, the person in charge of BU, has been pushing forward Huawei’s deep involvement in building cars, taking full control of the three models in the world, using Chery resources to build a new car like Zhijie S7, followed by the "Jie" series of BAIC and JAC. The offensive situation of BU, which is led by Yu Chengdong, in the field of complete vehicles has made China’s automobile industry wary of "Huawei’s car landing".

Therefore, although Huawei began to sell car chips and Huawei Harmony OS (HarmonyOS—— OS system not built by Huawei itself) to OEMs including Geely Geometry and GAC Chuanqi, it did not get wider support. Even Geometry and Chuanqi have encountered difficulties in communication. For example, they can’t explain clearly the difference between "Huawei HarmonyOS" and "HarmonyOS OS" to consumers.

Therefore, the independence of BU, Huawei’s smart car solution, can reassure China car companies that Huawei does not build cars, and BU is more of a Tier 1 partner. Huawei will not get involved in the vehicle business, but it can empower smart car products of China car companies. After all, a separate Huawei car BU will have diversified equity, and car companies can participate in Huawei car BU business to gain the right to vote on the development of car BU business to ensure that it will not have business conflicts.

This "shareholding" strategy will enable all car companies that cooperate with Huawei to clarify Huawei’s role and identity, and ensure that its cooperation with Huawei will not be replaced by cooperation with Huawei. After all, after the independent operation of "Car BU", Huawei is more a major shareholder and technical endorsement than a controller.

It is conceivable that with the independence of Huawei BU, the new company will be more active in the sales of smart car solutions, and there will be more modes of cooperation with car companies.

For example, the new company will not be restricted by Huawei, the parent company, but can transplant Huawei’s software and system turnkey solutions to the existing mainstream hardware solutions, including chips and computing platforms provided by overseas suppliers such as Qualcomm, NVIDIA, Continental Electronics and Visteon. This alone can bring a lot of new business to the independent car BU new company.

It can be said that the decision of independent car BU will bring more imagination to the smart car industry in China.

Why did Huawei throw the first olive branch of the new joint venture company to Changan Automobile?

The core reason must be that Huawei has enough confidence in Changan’s investment in Aouita, and can also see Changan’s sincerity. In particular, it is very important that Changan can trust Huawei.

What many people may not know is that when Aouita 11 was first released, although Huawei’s chips and hardware were used, the car machine system was not HarmonyOS OS, but a set of car machines developed by Huawei HarmonyOS system. However, half a year after the delivery, Aouita felt that it should abandon this self-developed car machine system and switch to Huawei’s HarmonyOS OS. The sunk cost, the R&D expenses needed for Huawei, and letting the entrance of the car out-this decision is unimaginable for many China car companies, let alone their own brands.

In August of this year, Changan Automobile made its own "pro-son" Deep Blue Automobile also sign a cooperation framework with Huawei’s smart car solution BU, which is a comprehensive bet on Huawei’s cooperation.

It can be said that Changan Automobile chose to firmly embrace Huawei through the cooperation project of Aouita. For a central enterprise and the second largest domestic passenger car sales brand in China, Changan Automobile has great courage to go against the trend when the "soul theory" is noisy. This time, Huawei was the first to find Changan Automobile after setting up a new company, which was regarded as reciprocated.

And in terms of scale, with Changan Automobile, Huawei can roll out smart car solutions according to the scale of one million vehicles. Now it is a Aouita brand, followed by a mid-to-high-end dark blue brand, and it will become the mainstream Changan brand in a few years. Ford, Mazda and other joint-venture independent vehicles cooperating with Changan may also use Huawei’s smart solutions.

Coupled with the existing channel scale of Changan, Huawei doesn’t even need to invest too much terminal resources, so it is reasonable for Huawei to cooperate with Changan.

Of course, Huawei’s choice of Changan Automobile may also have some external factors.

Not long ago, Dongfeng Motor revealed that Dongfeng is working with China FAW and Changan Automobile to build a vehicle operating system. This is another time for the three major automobile groups in China to "overcome difficulties" and try to jointly solve the operating system problem of "the neck of the automobile industry in China".

However, if we want to develop our own car operating system, it doesn’t mean that car companies can change their own Android system. Basically, the underlying operating system of cars has always been dominated by QNX of Blackberry, while open source Linux is another path, and the middleware AUTOSAR is also included.

At present, because the underlying operating system of vehicles involves functional safety, real-time operation, large-scale verification and other requirements, the enterprises that can participate in it are quite limited. Therefore, when the three major automobile groups in China join hands to build the underlying operating system of their own automobiles, it is inevitable to find a partner in the fields of software and ICT, and Huawei is almost the only choice.

More interestingly, Huawei also released HarmonyOS NEXT in a low-key manner in August. The bottom layer of the new system is self-developed by Huawei, which only supports the applications of HarmonyOS kernel and HarmonyOS system, and is no longer compatible with Android applications. Recently, Huawei also officially announced the HarmonyOS native application development plan, and more heavyweight apps began to rewrite the code based on the brand-new system, including Nail, Yuanshen and bilibili.

After Huawei launched HarmonyOS NEXT, it means that Huawei will completely break away from the existing Android system-the current HarmonyOS is based on the AOSP Android open source project-and form a completely closed, controllable and brand-new system that will not be affected by European and American patents.

From this perspective, if Huawei can build HarmonyOS NEXT, it can help China car companies to have their own controllable vehicle operating system. Therefore, the reason why Huawei chose Changan Automobile is even more important.

Of course, after Huawei and Changan announced the signing of the Memorandum of Cooperation and Investment, it was probably Cyrus who was most shocked.

Cyrus published a "Description of the Situation" late at night on November 26th, in which the most important sentence was: "At present, Cyrus has received an invitation to jointly invest in the target company and jointly participate in the construction of an electrified and intelligent open platform, and the company is actively demonstrating the relevant matters of participating in investment and cooperation."

It’s just that this passage didn’t play much role in Cyrus’s share price the next day. At the opening of the market on the morning of November 27th, Cyrus’ share price once fell by more than 7%, and it was not until near noon that Cyrus and Huawei jointly announced that the new M7 order exceeded 100,000 units that Cyrus’ share price gradually recovered its lost ground. However, in recent days, Celis has been more or less influenced by the deep cooperation between Changan and Huawei, and its share price has dropped from the highest 99.97 yuan to the current 76.09 yuan.

What is the relationship between HarmonyOS Zhixing and Huawei’s smart car solution BU? Will these brands, which have been listed and not yet listed, become "past tense"? The focus of attention of these parties, only Huawei has the sole right to interpret.

Yu Chengdong released a special Weibo after the closing of Cyrus, which not only mentioned that the order of M7 in the world exceeded 100,000 units, but also specifically explained the cooperation mode between Huawei and Cyrus.

"HarmonyOS Zhixing is the most comprehensive, close and in-depth mode of cooperation between Huawei and car companies, with the most advanced Huawei smart car innovation technology and the best intelligent experience.

Sailis is the earliest and deepest car enterprise partner in our HarmonyOS Zhixing model. Huawei will continue to work with Sailis to bring more and better products and services to consumers and create one hundred thousand cars after another! "Yu Chengdong wrote.

This passage basically explains the positioning of "HarmonyOS Zhixing" and the difference between Huawei and Changan. According to Yu Chengdong, "HarmonyOS Zhixing" not only has Huawei’s intelligent new technology, but also includes Huawei’s deep participation and all-round cooperation, which includes Huawei’s product design, production quality management, sales channel establishment and so on.

At the same time, the official micro of HarmonyOS Zhixing also "interpreted" himself:

1. HarmonyOS Zhixing is a comprehensive upgrade of Huawei’s smart car selection business, and its full name is HarmonyOS Smart Car Technology Ecological Alliance.

2. The car models of the car world and the car world are members of HarmonyOS Zhixing family.

3. The products of HarmonyOS Zhixing are purchased through Huawei channel, and the after-sales service is the unified user center of HarmonyOS Zhixing.

4. In addition to technology, HarmonyOS Zhixing also has Huawei’s comprehensive empowerment in product, quality, sales, service and marketing.

Therefore, in contrast, although Changan has made investment cooperation with Huawei, the products will not enter the category of "HarmonyOS Zhixing" with a high probability, but the brands of Wenjie, Zhijie and subsequent brands can be sold in Huawei’s dealer system.

In other words, the endorsement of "Huawei" channel is the biggest brand appeal of HarmonyOS Zhixing and the biggest reliance of Cyrus, Jianghuai and BAIC.

From Huawei’s point of view, if the sales volume of HarmonyOS Zhixing can be stabilized at about 300,000 vehicles a year, it will also be a market with a scale of 100 billion, and it will be a new "revenue-generating way" for Huawei dealers to continue this model. After all, considering the increasing volume of the mobile phone market and the low ceiling of Huawei’s mobile phone in the domestic consumer market, it is reasonable to switch to the automotive field. What’s more, Xiaomi, Huawei’s main competitor, is about to enter the field of complete vehicles, so the automobile industry is a battleground for Huawei.

This also reflects Huawei’s cooperation ideas in the automotive field: cooperating with weak recognition brands in HarmonyOS Zhixing to earn both technical fees and channel fees; Cooperate with strong brands for smart car solutions without further involvement.

However, it is very interesting that Chery, although cooperating with Huawei in the intellectual brand, has retained its own star-studded era ES, and even formed an "internal beating" state. To say that Chery has entered HarmonyOS Zhixing and is a weak brand, probably Chery will not be willing; However, if Chery adopts a similar cooperation mode between Huawei and Changan, then why should Zhijie S7 be put in HarmonyOS Zhixing?

Perhaps the subtlety is that when Chery was building a new generation of pure electric platform, it did not expect that it could make a turnaround in 2023.

Another direction of thinking about the cooperation between Changan and Huawei this time is that most people think that the independence of Huawei’s smart car solution BU means that Huawei will continue the "Bosch" that they wanted to be in the automotive industry, but only focus on the "smart car" field, providing solutions such as intelligent cockpit, intelligent driving and intelligent interaction.

In fact, this logic is also reasonable.

Huawei has now cut into more hardware fields, including electric drive, power module, chassis control, laser radar, vehicle-mounted chips, computing chips and so on, and compared with overseas suppliers, Huawei’s turnkey solutions in the software field are more suitable for the China market.

According to Huawei’s strategy of divesting smart car solution BU, BU, as an independent company, can cut into the business of vehicle companies more deeply, without worrying about the attitude of car companies. As an independent parts company, Car BU is almost impossible to build a car, and Huawei headquarters has no chance to build a car without smart car solutions.

In this way, Che BU, a new company, will be able to sell hardware and customized software in strict accordance with the standard practices of Tier 1 enterprises. Especially with the launch of new technologies, cooperative companies don’t have to worry that Huawei will get the first round, but they can get the opportunity to use the latest technologies through cooperation and negotiation to achieve maximum win-win results.

Another view of the driving school is that as Huawei divests the car BU, it will actually bring"Huawei technology disenchants".

The reason is that if only Huawei cars adopt Huawei technology, everyone will think that Huawei cars have unique charm, but they will inevitably be limited to niche areas. However, when all car companies can use Huawei technology, Huawei technology is essentially "disenchanted"-Huawei technology can be given to any model from smart driving to cockpit, and Huawei’s cars are not exclusive.

The advantage for Huawei is that the scale of Huawei’s smart car solutions will go up, and it can be iterated more quickly, constantly using new technologies to "attract" more car companies to use Huawei’s smart car solutions.

In this way, the competitive differentiation of HarmonyOS Zhixing, Chang ‘an and Geely is not who uses Huawei technology first, but whose technology integration is better-this is back to the original competition mode of the automobile industry.

Even Huawei still has "HarmonyOS Zhixing", but to a great extent, "HarmonyOS Zhixing" is similar to a technology integration enterprise. The vehicle manufacturing enterprise belongs to the ODM at the chassis level, and the car BU is a core technology supplier similar to Sony and Qualcomm, which is finally integrated by Huawei and sold in its own channels.

In this way, the competition pattern of the automobile industry is more and more like the mobile phone and computer industries. Perhaps the flagship product has a higher degree of self-research, but the low-end products are completely the products of technology integration-in the past, the fuel vehicle era had to compete for engines and gearboxes, and the electric era could completely rely on external procurement. Differentiation is even just a subtle difference in styling and chassis style, and what consumers value more is only the non-standardized part.

For example, there is no difference in functional experience between Changan’s entry car and Jianghuai’s entry car, which depends entirely on who has better brand awareness and wider channels, rather than the technical differences of the products themselves. This is similar to the current competition among Redmi, Glory and OV.

Undoubtedly, when the overall logic of the smart car industry begins to approach the mobile phone industry, Huawei’s vision of being "Bosch in the smart car industry" can be realized.

The next question is, Huawei has already played its cards, and Changan has also taken over. So how will Geely and its Star Meizu, Great Wall and its Mimo Zhixing, SAIC and Zero Beam software respond?

My guess is: whoever can bind foreign car companies together and let their smart car solutions go overseas first will have the chance to win the next game.
