HMS for Car is Huawei's major exploration of the vehicle ecology, a smart in-car cloud service solution created by Huawei Terminal Cloud Services.
It is based on HMS (Huawei Mobile Services) and combines the AI scene engine with Huawei's ecological resources to provide users with accurate and rich travel scene content and services, helping the car evolve from a vehicle to an intelligent terminal with the ability to interact and provide services.

The Volvo XC40 RECHARGE, equipped with Huawei's in-vehicle application marketplace, offers more than 35 applications covering 16 categories.
The new model is equipped with Huawei's "Quick App", which can be used without the need to download and install an app.
