The cooperation between GAC and Huawei began in 2017, one of the first Chinese automakers to collaborate with Huawei in the field of intelligent connected electric vehicle technology. Then, in September 2020, the two companies signed another in-depth strategic cooperation agreement to jointly create a digital platform.

Later in July 2021, GAC Aion announced plans to jointly develop a model internally named AH8. However, in March last year, GAC Aion announced that Huawei would no longer participate in this joint development, but would instead serve as a supplier. This termination could potentially be due to Huawei’s style of getting deeply involved in product definition, making it difficult for GAC Aion to adapt since GAC Aion treated Huawei as its supplier and managed it like other traditional suppliers.

But this setback did not prevent the two parties from continuing their collaboration. In fact, in February this year, GAC Trumpchi launched its Trumpchi M8 Grandmaster Pioneer Edition, equipped with Huawei’s HarmonyOS intelligent cockpit system. Then on March 15, GAC Trumpchi signed a contract with Huawei to join the Harmony ecosystem and start the development of native applications based on HarmonyOS NEXT.
