An important pillar of the globalization strategy, "but it is too early to talk about the details."

For the current Mercedes-Benz, EQ is a special product line, but in the future, fuel vehicles may be the special one.

Li Bin: Weilai Auto's mobile phone is not competing with Huawei

On January 12, Li Bin said in an interview with China Entrepreneur Magazine that NIO's mobile phone is not to compete with Huawei and Xiaomi, but to meet the needs of users. Nowadays, the collaboration between mobile phones and cars is becoming more and more important.

Li Bin said that he does not expect NIO mobile phones to allow users to buy NIO cars. "NIO's mobile phones can sell hundreds of thousands of units, and half of the users will be very happy to buy (NIO cars)."

He believes that the decision-making pressure for car users to switch to the same brand of mobile phones is small, while mobile phone users can only buy cars of the same brand, which can only be done by Apple.
