Geometry said HarmonyOS will be used in its new model to co-create a new smart ecosystem.
Geely's electric vehicle (EV) brand Geometry will use Huawei's HarmonyOS to power its cockpit in a new model, as the tech giant ramps up its presence in the automotive industry.
Geometry announced the plan on Weibo today, saying HarmonyOS will be used in its new model to co-create a new smart ecosystem.
Geometry didn't provide much more information, but it included an image showing that the new model will have a large center screen similar to the Tesla Model 3, unlike the smaller screen in its current models.
The image shows that the car also appears to have a head-up display system in front of the steering wheel.
Geometry currently offers four models, including Geometry A with a subsidized price range of RMB 139,800 ($20,700) to RMB 175,800, the Geometry C with a price range of RMB 139,700 to RMB 175,700, the Geometry E with a price range of RMB 86,800 to RMB 103,800, and the Geometry E with a price range of RMB 68,800 to 78,800.

Geometry-branded electric vehicles sold 12,163 units in June, up 175 percent from 4,426 units in the same month last year, Geely data released last month showed.
For the first half of the year, Geometry's cumulative sales were 54,481 units, up 293 percent from 13,849 units in the same period last year. Sales for July have not yet been announced.
HarmonyOS, Huawei's mobile operating system, is designed to seamlessly integrate the phone's apps with the vehicle's system.
In the case of navigation, for example, after users turn on navigation on a HarmonyOS-equipped phone, they can have the progress of navigation synced to the in-car HarmonyOS system without additional action when entering a vehicle using the system.
Huawei released HarmonyOS 3 on July 27, which supports the collaboration of 12 smart devices including printers, smart glasses, and in-car systems.
