What is known
We are talking about OPPO. According to Xuxushai’s report, CEO and founder of the company, Tony Chen, personally led the project. He and his team have spent the last few weeks researching resources as well as interviewing industry talent. Naturally, we are not yet talking about the development of an electric car. The company is just testing the waters.
«If automakers can’t make good cars and OPPO has the strength, we’ll try,» CEO Tony Chen said.
By the way, according to the source, Chen even met with representatives of Tesla, as well as with the battery supplier CATL. The company has not yet officially confirmed its intention to produce electric vehicles.
