Avatr is a joint project between Changan, CATL, and Huawei. Changan owns 40% of this JV, and CATL holds over 17%. Huawei doesn’t have shares in the project. Instead, it acts as the key parts supplier. Moreover, Huawei is one of the creators of the CHN architecture. However, Avatr 07 revealed that Huawei became less relevant in this project.
