From now on, BAIC Blue Valley and Huawei are formulating their thinking to give their society another chance by developing some new SUV products. According to the information, the invention of the hardware will require 8 billion yuan (US$1.18 billion) in funding in the following areas:

Skateboard platform development project for scenario-based products

This project shows the work over the lower body of each model. After that, the company adjusts the structure of the torso with different designs, choosing one of them depending on the performance. In order to compete with technology trends, the separation of heavy and light materials will be the new strategy.

The term heavy material here reflects the lower parts of the body. For example suspension, steering, brakes, battery pack, electric drive, thermal management and other parts. While the light word defines the styling, bodywork, interior and exterior trim. Since the development is quite difficult, the investment is also high.

Vehicle product upgrade and development projects

This project is based on the development of pure electric vehicles of the ARCFOX brand. This also includes the new sports car (N51AB)the flagship of the all-electric intelligent SUVs of the B-class (N62HBT)and A-Class crossover models. In addition, the company will upgrade the C-class all-electric smart car (N61HBT).

Accordingly, the company will rework the entire development scenario for the above gadgets. One thing that will remain in common, however, is BAIC New Energy, the principal body of the project and a wholly owned subsidiary of the company.
