The Hon Hai Precision Industry Co Ltd and a major supplier to Apple Inc are now looking for fresh growth from various sectors such as electric vehicles, digital health and robots in a drive to diversify its global investments.
To manufacture electric cars and to develop the internet-connected vehicles in China the company is planning to set up a joint venture with Foxconn. “We want to push Taiwan’s EV industry to the world,” Liu said in Taipei.
“Hon Hai has to ready our open platform as soon as possible. We need to move fast to grab market share,” he said referring to Foxconn to build an open platform to make key EV components including the batteries and car internet services to carmakers.
Foxconn has said that it will not manufacture the cars and will make key components for EVs and work with global major automakers to reach the 10% goal.
