Chinese automobile maker BYD has unveiled the world's first car carrying Huawei Technologies Co's HiCar system, which is based on Huawei's self-developed HarmonyOS.
The HiCar system is an in-car smart interactive system that allows drivers to connect their cars with their smartphones and offers a string of services, including intelligent voice assistance and map navigation.
Yu Chengdong, CEO of Huawei's consumer business group, said at the launch event for BYD's latest electric flagship car model, Han, on Sunday that compared to Apple's CarPlay system, Huawei's HiCar solution can support more applications.
According to Yu, using Huawei's HarmonyOS also makes full use of the hardware capabilities of cars and mobile phones.
Huawei said last September that its 5G-based HiCar partnership ecosystem includes more than 30 enterprises, including Audi, BYD, GAC and BAIC.
