Manager Magazin reported on Thursday that the German carmaker – Volkswagen is in talks with Huawei to acquire an autonomous car-making unit for a deal that could reach up to billions of euros.
Car makers are rushing to make new technologies related to the smart car concepts that will shape the future of driving. Related to this, Volkswagen Chief Executive Diess said on Wednesday he expects the car industry to see widespread autonomous driving within 25 years and that the company was pursuing new partnerships to increase its self-sufficiency in software.
in the past few years, Huawei has rapidly made growth in autonomous car solutions. In China, the tech maker has introduced its technology in collaboration with many car companies including SERES.
Although, there are many speculations that Huawei is building its own cars but the company has already denied these claims saying that Huawei doesn’t want to build new cars instead it will develop new smart car technology and help carmakers to sell them.
In the current scenario, nor Huawei nor Volkswagen has delivered any confirmation on this matter but we’ll wait for the official statement that could reveal a better insight.
Geely Geometry G6 model is equipped with Huawei HarmonyOS
Geely Geometry automobile firm has finally shown the first look of its new smart vehicle named Geometry G6. The company has published a new post on its official Weibo site displaying a bunch of images of the brand new car models.
A few days ago, Geely has associated with the Huawei HarmonyOS system for imposing some intelligent car solutions and a smart cockpit on its models. Slowly and steadily, the company is giving a boost to the development process for its new products.
On reading the Weibo blog in more detail, we find that Geely has mentioned some vital points regarding the upcoming Geometry G6 model. Accordingly, the letter G in the G6 Geometry is derived from Geely&Geometry and indicates the term ‘Sedan’.
Consequently, this illustrates that the new model is quite inspired by the sedan methodology. As a result, individuals will find a smart vehicle with a three-box configuration and a separatable trunk for an engine, passengers, as well as cargo. Thereafter the numbers ‘0-9’ in the models represent the size of the smart products.
Although, we didn’t find any statement related to the price tag of the device. However, we expect to find the model on the consumer platform at a range of 200,000 yuan [29 thousand USD].
First Look at Geometry G6
It’s worth mentioning that Geely has showcased the snaps of both G6 and M6 models on its page. While the G6 carries a greenish shade on its outer surface, the M6 exhibits a magenta tone on its body. Both the colorways are quite decent and elegant to the eyes.
On seeing the official images, we found that the company has tried to give a shiny look to its new smart vehicles. The car appears as a four-door passenger car from the exterior layout. Further, it adopts a closed front grille, which imposes a luminous LOGO at the center.
Besides, it has a long but narrow light group that makes it easy to recognize the model even in the dark. It also gives space to super-agile door handles and wheels with low wind resistance. Though the company hasn’t mentioned much about the models at the moment. But the mist will get clear in the time ahead.
