Recently, Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. applied for the registration of a number of “5Green” and “5Gigaverse” trademarks. The international classification involves scientific instruments and communication services. Huawei proposed to provide a ubiquitous 5Gigaverse experience and to provide a high experience while meeting the 5Green goal of green and low carbon. During MWC22 Barcelona, Huawei’s 5Green solution won the GTI Awards “Mobile Technology Innovation Breakthrough Award” and “Excellence Award”.
On March 4, Shanghai Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. underwent an industrial and commercial change. The company’s business scope added auto parts research and development; engineering and technology research and test development. Shareholder information shows that the company is wholly owned by Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.
However, Huawei has repeatedly stated that it will not build cars. In January this year, Wang Jun, the BU COO of Huawei’s smart car solution, once again stated that Huawei does not build cars. “Our core is to help companies build good cars.”
It is worth mentioning that in February this year, the news that Volkswagen was considering the acquisition of an autonomous driving unit of Huawei for one billion euros came out again. However, there is no official information regarding the business.
