Integration of Huawei's Intelligent Automotive Business with Consumer Business Group, the head will report to Yu Chengdong.

It is reported that Huawei’s Consumer Business Group is integrating with its Intelligent Automotive Solution business, with the CEO of Huawei’s Consumer Business Group, Richard Yu, as the new head.

Established in May 2019, Huawei’s Intelligent Automotive Solution business unit is under the ICT management committee, with Huawei’s rotating chairman, Xu Zhijun, as its top executive.

Huawei’s main purpose for this merger is to improve the operational efficiency within the group. While the Intelligent Cockpit business falls under the Intelligent Automotive Solution department, previously exposed Huawei Hicar, vehicle-based 5G communication, and other businesses actually belong to the Consumer Business Group.

These two closely related businesses are in different units, but for Huawei, the merger is just a matter of time.

For Huawei, which has been very active in the field of intelligent vehicles in recent years, this news may be the precursor to “Huawei is making cars”.

On the 14th of this month, Huawei, CATL, and Chang’an Motors announced that they were joining forces to create a smart electric car brand. It seems that the speculation of Huawei creating its own car is now becoming a reality.

Regarding Huawei’s plan for the automotive industry, Xu Zhijun once said, “Maybe ten years from now, Huawei will be as powerful in the automobile industry as it is in the mobile phone industry”.
