On May 24, Huawei issued the “Statement Regarding Huawei Not Building Cars” stating that the company spokesperson has repeatedly clarified the false rumors about Huawei building cars. Today, we reiterate that Huawei does not build cars. This long-term strategy was clear in 2018, and nothing has changed. Huawei also stated that it will not participate in investing in any car companies, and BAIC (600166), Changan (000625) and Guangzhou Automobile Group (601238) will only serve as strategic partners and use Huawei’s solutions to help them create future-oriented car. The cooperation with Jinconcelis is also to solve the current survival problem of Huawei authorized mobile phone retail stores. On the 24th, affected by the “Huawei does not build cars” statement, Huawei’s automotive concept stocks fell across the board. Changan Automobile and BAIC Blue Valley fell by the limit. Xiaokang shares (601127.SH) plummeted by more than six points, and Guangzhou Automobile Group fell by as much as six points. 4.32%. Huawei denies building cars again In the “Statement on Huawei Not Building Cars,” Huawei said: We believe that what the industry needs is not Huawei brand cars, but Huawei’s accumulated ICT technology capabilities over 30 years to help automakers build future-oriented cars. , That is, to provide car companies with intelligent networked auto parts based on Huawei’s ICT capabilities. So far, we have not invested in any car companies. In the future, it will not invest in any auto companies, nor will it hold or participate in shares. In the future, all discussions that Huawei builds cars or participates in the auto manufacturing industry are rumours and don’t be credulous. We have chosen BAIC, Changan and Guangzhou Automobile as our strategic partners to support them in building their respective sub-brands. Cars that use Huawei’s autonomous driving solution can only use the HI logo with Huawei’s authorization, which represents Huawei Inside. Regarding the cooperation between Huawei and Jincon Sailus, a subsidiary of Chongqing Xiaokang Group, Huawei is a supplier of electric components for Celes SF5 and HiCar cockpit components. At the same time, in order to solve the problem of survival of Huawei authorized mobile phone retail stores in the situation where Huawei’s mobile phones are greatly reduced, Huawei is supporting some retail stores to sell this car, and retail stores can obtain corresponding benefits. It can be seen from Huawei’s statement that Huawei’s positioning of itself has not changed, and that it is a provider of automotive intelligent network components. Huawei will not directly enter the vehicle manufacturing industry, and rumors about “Huawei making cars” in the market are all false. Huawei said that it can help car companies build good cars. Of course, Huawei has the strength to fulfill its promises. Huawei has launched a comprehensive layout around the three core areas of “smart driving, smart cabin, and three-electricity”. On April 18, at the Huawei HI new product launch conference, Wang Jun, President of Huawei Smart Car Solutions BU, said that Huawei will release five new products, covering smart cockpits, computing platforms, radars, autonomous driving open platforms and thermal management systems. “From the perspective of business portfolio and technical solutions, Huawei’s full-stack self-developed almost all core businesses of smart cars, including hardware and software. Tesla’s advantage is the massive trip data of global users, Baidu’s advantage is algorithms, and Huawei’s However, the advantages of the company are all-round, and it can open up the upstream and downstream of the industrial chain. This kind of strength is not possessed by new car-building forces or cross-border car-building technology companies.” Industry insiders analyzed and said to reporters. “Catch up” with Huawei’s car companies Although Huawei has always stated that it will not build cars, rumors about Huawei building cars in the market have been uninterrupted. It was reported on March 9 that Huawei and GAC Group’s new energy vehicle company GAC Aian had begun to jointly develop the next generation of smart electric vehicles. Both parties invested in R&D teams of more than 100 people. After the news was released, on the same day, GAC Group’s AH shares soared collectively, with A shares rising 6.39% and H shares rising 4.26%. At the end of April, there was news that Huawei was negotiating with Xiaokang shares to acquire a controlling stake in Chongqing Jinkang New Energy Automobile, in order to produce smart cars with the Huawei brand. Subsequently, Shen Wei, the secretary of the board of Xiaokang shares, said that the cooperation with Huawei was only in business, and he clearly denied that Huawei will control or participate in Jinkang. And Huawei also said that “there is no such thing.” But even denying it will not affect the performance of Xiaokang shares in the capital market. The share price of Xiaokang shares has risen from around 23 yuan in early April to 66.54 yuan on May 18, which has soared nearly three times. Since the new energy vehicle Cyrus SF5 under Xiaokang shares entered the Huawei Mall on April 19, only one week, the order of Cyrus SF5 reached 6,000. In sharp contrast, the sales volume of SF5 in 2020 is only 732 units. SF5’s weekly sales volume is eight times that of last year’s full-year orders. On the eve of the Shanghai Auto Show on April 17, Huawei and BAIC New Energy Jihu released the first smart car jointly created-Alpha S, officially called the “global new benchmark for autonomous driving.” Since then, BAIC Blue Valley’s share price has risen from about 12 yuan in mid-April to a peak of more than 19 yuan. At the Shanghai Auto Show on April 20, Changan Automobile’s chairman Zhu Huarong revealed that he has teamed up with CATL and Huawei to create a smart electric networked vehicle platform (ie CHN). The plan for high-end smart electric vehicles is on track, and a new high-end brand name is about to come. Announced. On May 20, Changan Automobile issued an announcement to formally rename its holding subsidiary Changan Weilai New Energy Automobile Technology Co., Ltd. to Avita Technology Co., Ltd., and jointly create autonomous and controllable intelligent electric vehicles with Changan Automobile, Huawei and CATL The connected car platform (CHN) creates a rich series of smart car products. On May 21, the share price of Changan Automobile rose 8.46% to close at 25 yuan per share. In the past 40 trading days, the share price of Changan Automobile rose 76%. Although in this process, Huawei has not formally stated its position to build cars, news about Huawei’s participation in car building has been spread out one after another, which has continuously aroused the enthusiasm of the market. As long as car companies have a relationship with Huawei, the market will definitely buy it, and it will have the most direct manifestation in the stock price. And this time Huawei completely denies building a car, which can be regarded as breaking the market’s thinking about Huawei building a car. Huawei’s 2020 annual report shows that its growth has slowed sharply, with annual revenue of 891.4 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of only 3.8%. In the previous three years, Huawei has achieved a year-on-year growth of about 19%. On April 28, Huawei announced its operating results for the first quarter of 2021. Due to the sales of Honor and the decline in mobile phone sales, operating income fell 16.9% year-on-year to 150.57 billion yuan. Huawei’s overall revenue is expected to face greater pressure in 2021. “The automotive business may be the focus of Huawei’s efforts in the next few years. Huawei needs to find new profit growth points. At the moment when smart cars are in the air, with Huawei’s technical strength, they choose to help automakers build good cars instead of their own. It is undoubtedly a safe and wise choice to build a car in person.” said the industry insider. Editor: Zhai Yanan Editor: Wang Dayong
