Huawei to Unveil First Smart Cars at Shanghai Auto Show

(Yicai  Global) April 11 -- Huawei Technologies will unveil the Chinese tech  giant's first-ever smart automobiles, developed in tandem with Dongfeng  Motor, at the upcoming 2019 Auto Shanghai which starts next week.

The  Shenzhen-based firm's cars will feature in-vehicle communications,  fifth-generation wireless network support and cloud functions, People's  Daily-backed newspaper Securities Times reported.

Huawei  along with Wuhan-based Dongfeng penned a CNY3 billion (USD446 million)  deal with local authorities in Xiangyang, central Hubei province, at the  start of the month, to develop smart car, logistics and transportation  cloud platforms as part of efforts to realize 5G-powered autonomous  driving.

The models will include information query functions, vehicle management, traffic scheduling and equipment management.

The  report did not reveal specific details of the new cars, though a  mini-bus model was on show at the signing ceremony for the Xiangyang  government deal.
