Li Pengcheng, the former assistant to the CEO of XPeng Motors, will join Avatr Technology after China's upcoming Spring Festival holiday.
Chinese battery giant CATL signed an agreement on December 20 to deepen strategic cooperation with Avatr, an electric vehicle firm headquartered in Chongqing.
Avatr Technology, a brand co-developed by Changan Automobile, Huawei and CATL, has reached an agreement with Huawei with which the brand's first model, Avatr 11, will be put on display in Huawei's flagship stores in Beijing and Shenzhen later this year.
Tan Benhong, the chairman and CEO of Chinese EV firm Avatr, which was jointly established by Changan Automobile, Huawei and CATL, said in an interview, "Although Huawei said that it would have a hard time, it actually has little impact on Avatr."
On August 8, the Avatr 11 and a limited edition model Avatr 011, created by Avatr Technology, an electric vehicle brand co-developed by Changan Automobile, Huawei and CATL, were officially launched.
Avatr, an electric vehicle brand backed by Changan Automobile, Huawei and CATL, announced on August 5 that it will join hands with BP to build a high-voltage fast charging network that will be implemented in first-tier Chinese cities as soon as this year.
