At the end of March, Xiaomi officially announced that it was entering the electric car market. Now there is information that its example will be followed by another Chinese manufacturer of equipment.
What is known?
We are talking about OPPO. According to a report by Xiuxiushai, the company’s CEO and founder, Tony Chen, personally led the project. He and his team have spent the last few weeks researching resources, as well as interviewing talent from the industry. Naturally, we are not talking about the development of an electric car yet. The company is just probing the ground.
“If carmakers can’t make good cars, and OPPO has the strength, we’ll try it,” said CEO Tony Chen.
By the way, according to the source, Chen even met with representatives of Tesla, as well as with the supplier of batteries CATL. Officially, the company has not yet confirmed its intentions to produce electric cars.
