The China Automotive Blue Book Forum opened today. Yu Chengdong made a speech at the conference and once again talked about his views on extended-range vehicles. Yu Chengdong said that the extended range is very suitable as the first car in the family. He suggested that pure fuel vehicles should be eliminated as soon as possible, and shared that the gasoline power generation for extended range vehicles is more fuel-efficient than fuel vehicles, which can save about half of the fuel, which really brings about an improvement in energy efficiency. .
In Yu Chengdong’s view, automobiles are Huawei’s only loss-making business. It only invests a lot in parts. It is definitely a business that burns money, and it is definitely a difficult business to do.
This is not the first time Yu Chengdong has expressed such a view. At the press conference a few days ago, for many users that the extended-range electric vehicle is only a transitional route, Yu Chengdong, the executive director of Huawei, the CEO of Terminal BG, and the CEO of Smart Car Solutions BU, was in When accepting the media, he said that this is nonsense. If the extended-range engine is removed, it is a pure electric car. The pure electric car has added a range-extending engine, is it backward?
Yu Chengdong said that even if the battery of the pure electric car is made larger, it still needs to be charged. What if there is no place to charge it when it is used up? Large batteries have also become a burden, and battery energy density is also a bottleneck.
In Yu Chengdong’s view, the use of fuel for extended-range vehicles to generate electricity is more fuel-efficient than fuel vehicles, because fuel vehicles often keep clutching and shifting on the road, and the engine has been working inefficiently. Although the extended-range vehicle generates electricity, the electricity can be recovered, which is much more efficient than the fuel vehicle.
