Polar Fox Alpha S

It would seem that one of the biggest giants operating in the world of technology is ready to make its debut in the automotive sector. In fact, the Chinese company Huawei is preparing to present its first electric car to the world, which will most likely be called Polar Fox Alpha S. The vehicle will apparently be unveiled during the next Beijing Motor Show to be held on April 17. According to the Chinese media, the vehicle of the giant Huawei was made in collaboration with BAIC and will be unveiled with Arcfox.

The car, which will very likely be called Polar Fox Alpha S, will look like a self-driving luxury sedan and will have 5G connection. Therefore, it is clear that thanks to the presence of this technology, the company will pave the way for a future where new generation smart cars, obviously electric, will be the masters. Together with the news concerning the arrival of the first car of the Huawei brand, the Chinese giant has announced that an amount equal to one billion dollars will be invested in the development of a zero-emission powertrain management software and innovative technologies that will affect the autonomous driving.

The goal that the company wants to achieve is to be able to compete with a great rival, such as Tesla. From this point of view, Huawei seems to have proven to be well advanced compared to Musk's company, especially in some areas related to autonomous driving. According to what was declared by President Eric Xu, in fact, the Chinese giant managed to travel about 1,000 km in totally autonomous driving. At least initially, there will be three companies that will be offered autonomous driving from Huawei, namely BAIC, Changan and Guangzhou. On the subject, President Xu allegedly stated the following:

The car-related technology business has enormous potential and that is why we will be investing a billion dollars in the development of automotive components in 2021 alone. China produces 30 million cars a year and the number is in continuous growth. If we manage to earn an amount equal to 10,000 yuan (about 1,250 euros) for each car sold, we will amortize the costs in an instant.

Huawei And Its Partners Will Launch Three Car Sub-Brands On April 17

Today, the Huawei Global Analyst Conference 2021 took place in Shenzhen. Huawei’s rotating chairman Xu Zhijun said that the company had cooperated with three auto companies to build three sub-brands. Starting in the fourth quarter of this year, we will see the first Huawei cars coming our way from those sub-brands. So it turns out that unlike Xiaomi, one of the biggest tech companies in China will not design its own cars yet.

Xu Zhijun said that Huawei’s decision not to build cars and to help car companies build good cars was a matter of years of discussion. This strategy has not changed so far. Huawei has cooperated with three partners and will launch three brands of smart cars. More specifically, these brand will be jointly made by Huawei and its partners.

Huawei Car Sub-Brands

The first cooperation is between Huawei and BAIC New Energy. They will build the ARCFOX Polar Fox brand. Starting in the fourth quarter of this year, a series of vehicles will be launched on the market. The other two companies are Chongqing Changan and Guangzhou Automobile. However, the names of the two brands have not yet been determined.

Xu Zhijun said that the smart car products jointly launched by Huawei will carry the logo of Huawei inside. But not all models will use it. It will appear only on those cars that use Huawei’s autonomous driving solution.

Recently, Huawei Smart Car Solution BU has warmed up ARCFOX Polar Fox Alpha S on Weibo. From the first post, we see its positioning is the new generation of smart luxury pure electric cars. It will be released on April 17 in Shanghai.

In December 2020, Huawei officially released its 96-line medium and long-range LIDAR products. Huawei’s LIDAR is rich in application scenarios, such as small long-distance obstacles, short-distance stoppages, near-end protrusions, tunnels, crossroads, basements, etc. Also, it has a high-speed vehicle detection ability. In addition, Wang Jun, President of Huawei Smart Car Solutions BU, revealed that Huawei plans to reduce the cost of LIDAR to US$200 or even US$100 in the future.

The BAIC Blue Valley ARCFOX Polar Fox αS HBT models will adopt the most advanced three-LIDAR-carrying solution. HBT will also come with 6 millimeter wave radars, 12 cameras, 13 ultrasonic radars, and a Huawei chip with a computing power of up to 352Tops, forming an autonomous driving solution above the L3 level.
