Speaking of Foxconn, many people will first associate with apple mobile phone. After all, as the largest OEM of Apple mobile phone, Foxconn still has strong technical strength in the field of manufacturing.
The automobile industry as one of the largest industrial industries in the world, because of the existence of main engine plants, automobile OEM production seems to be a bit of a dream.
However, with the advent of the era of automobile electrification and the close cooperation of economic globalization, OEM production of electric vehicles is gradually becoming a reality, and Foxconn has taken the lead this time.
Recently, Foxconn Chairman Liu Yangwei said that the company plans to supply parts or services for 10% of the world's electric vehicles (about 3 million vehicles) between 2025 and 2027.
In addition, the company has been in discussions with a number of automobile manufacturers, hoping to reach cooperation in the future.
Liu Yangwei revealed that Foxconn will not produce its own brand cars, but hopes to establish an open platform to provide key components of electric vehicles, including battery and Internet of vehicles services.
At this stage, Foxconn is one of the main suppliers of Apple company. The company hopes to transform its business in the fields of electric vehicle, digital health and robot, and realize the diversification of global investment.
In addition, at the beginning of this year, Fiat Chrysler Group (FCA) is planning to establish a joint venture with Foxconn Group, a high-tech enterprise in Taiwan, to cooperate in the R & D and production of electric vehicles, and will take the lead in the Chinese market.
According to information, FCA will hold 50% of the shares of the new joint venture and Foxconn will hold no more than 40% of the shares.
At present, Foxconn mainly relies on OEM iPhone for Apple company to earn profits. Apple's orders account for half of its performance. In the past few years, Foxconn has tried many businesses and invested in many electric vehicle enterprises, but none of them has achieved success.
This time, Foxconn announced to enter the field of electric vehicle parts supply, which is not only to realize the diversification of enterprises, but also to find new performance growth points for the group and strengthen its ability to resist market risks.
