During 2019 Shanghai Auto Show, Huawei exhibited for the first time as a Tier 1 supplier. Xu Zhijun, vice chairman of Huawei, publicly stated that Huawei is not making cars in the future, but focusing on ICT technology to help auto maker build good cars. Xu Zhijun also pointed out that 70% of the value of future cars is an incremental business, and Huawei is committed to becoming an incremental component supplier for intelligent networked vehicles. With the deep integration of the automotive industry and the ICT industry, intelligent networked electric vehicles are becoming a new revolutionary development engine for human society, and their impact far exceeds the two industries themselves.
