Chinese consumer electronics company Hisense and electric car maker NIO on Tuesday signed a strategic cooperation agreement to work together in multiple sectors including new energy vehicle (NEV), overseas market expansion and home appliances procurement, reported China Securities Journal.
The two sides have agreed to combine each other's strengths and engage in comprehensive cooperation in specific NEV-related fields such as automotive air conditioning systems, automotive thermal management systems, intelligent transportation, vehicle-road coordination, new display and multimedia technology products, among others.
The all-round cooperation between the two parties is expanded based on the platform of Sanden, an automotive electronics brand under Hisense.
