Huawei’s HarmonyOS to power Volkswagen cars in China

May 18, 2023


According to Financial Times sources, Volkswagen is in talks with Huawei to bring HarmonyOS to its cars sold in China. And given Chinese consumers’ strong favor for homegrown technology and VW’s software woes, it makes a lot more sense for VW to seek partnership with Huawei. In the opposite direction, Seres dropped HarmonyOS for Android Auto for its cars sold in Europe.

Interestingly enough, one of the sources says that Volkswagen hasn’t limited its options to just Huawei. Reportedly, the German automaker is looking for a long-term partner in China in general, but Huawei seems to be on top of the list with its push for HarmonyOS ecosystem.
