Huawei Technologies is expanding its presence in the auto industry by partnering with more legacy automakers to produce Aito-branded electric cars, according to the company’s senior executive, Richard Yu. At the China EV 100 forum in Beijing, Yu announced that Huawei will collaborate with Chery Automobile, BAIC Motor and Anhui Jianghuai Automobile Group to jointly develop and manufacture Aito-branded vehicles.
Huawei, which already has a partnership with Seres Group to make Aito cars, plans to produce a series of models, including SUVs, sedans and multipurpose vehicles, under the Aito brand. “We’d like to fully use the automakers’ resources of production capacity”, said Yu.

Seres sold 80,000 Aito cars featuring Huawei’s HarmonyOS system in 2022, up more than six times from a year ago, according to company filings. However, Huawei has been hit by a series of export controls by Washington, which claims it is a security risk, leading to sanctions that have blocked Huawei from buying key components and using Google’s Android operating system.
