Although Huawei does not build cars, it will still play a very important role in the process of reforming the automobile industry.
On April 22, the first mass production SUV ARCFOX α-T under the high-end brand ARCFOX of BAIC New Energy opened for pre-sale. The new car is positioned as a pure electric SUV with a pre-sale price starting from RMB 280,000.
ARCFOX calls it "5G smart electric vehicle". The new car not only has a battery life of 653km and an α-Pilot intelligent driving system, but also carries the MH5000 T-BOX based on Huawei's new generation 5G chip, which has the characteristics of high speed, low latency and wide connection.
Balong 5000 is the latest 5G baseband of Huawei HiSilicon and supports NSA and SA networking.
Balong 5000 achieves the industry's benchmark 5G peak download rate, reaching 4.6Gbps in the Sub-6GHz (low frequency band, 5G main frequency band) frequency band, and up to 6.5Gbps in the millimeter wave (high frequency band, 5G extension frequency band) frequency band.
It can meet the 5G communication needs of automobiles and provide assistance for vehicle data communication, vehicle-road collaboration and future autonomous driving.
At this stage, ARCFOX α-T is at the level of L2 advanced driving assistance, which can realize the functions of automatic following and lane keeping. Officials said that with the 5G basic capabilities of the car, the L3 will be "unlocked" faster and easier in the future.
Xu Heyi, chairman of BAIC Group, once said: "Our high-end intelligent new energy vehicle brand ARCFOX, the control system is basically Huawei. I believe that with the successive launch of Huawei's automotive products, including car-grade chips, Huawei will soon become China's Bosch. "
ARCFOX α-T will be put into production at the BAIC Blue Valley Magna Intelligent Manufacturing Base and will be available for sale before August this year.
