As per the company, the Huawei AITO M5 Smart Car is inspired by the design of the Porsche Macan and is the first luxury smart electric plug-in hybrid SUV from the brand. The design looks neat, modern, and sleek, Huawei claims that the car comes with an ample amount of interior space and the same goes for the boot space. The SUV is developed by Huawei in partnership with Chinese brand Seres. The brand comes under the Chongqing Sokon conglomerate company.

The smart EV runs on Huawei’s own operating system, HarmonyOS. The company developed the operating system after the US government restricted the company to use the Android operating system. HarmonyOS is developed to enhance the experience of Huawei IoT devices which also includes smartphones, laptops, smartwatches, smart electric cars  and more.

At the launch event the company Senior Vice President and CEO of Huawei Smart Car Division, Yu Chengdong, revealed that the company has developed the world’s first Bluetooth and NFC-supported digital car keys. As per Yu, the HarmonyOS 2.0 comes with smartphone support, and the digital car key will be located within the Huawei wallet app. The digital car key will allow you to pair the physical car key with the digital one. Users can utilize the digital key to unlock and lock the car from a distance. The car key also supports NFC which will allow you the same accessibility in case the Bluetooth is not working for the phone battery is drained out.  huawei electric SUV

Mr Yu explains that on HarmonyOS 2.0 supported smartphones, the digital smart car keys are located within the Huawei Wallet app. With the digital keys, you can do pretty much everything a pair of physical car keys do, without having to worry about misplacing the keys or finding the keys during an emergency.


To illustrate the technology, the digital car keys use Bluetooth to unlock and lock the car from a distance away, and if Bluetooth does not work or the phone battery runs out, the car keys also support NFC(even without phone battery) for unlocking the car so you’ll still have access to the car even when Bluetooth is not working.

The NFC and Bluetooth encryption of the digital keys are also present in the smart car, and it is compliant with the China ICCE standard as well as the road safety and privacy of the car drivers and passengers. As of today, the digital car keys are only available on HarmonyOS 2.0 Huawei smartphones, however, Huawei is planning to add this functionality to its Huawei Watch 3 series too as it would be more convenient for drivers to unlock their cars with a twist of a wrist compared to taking your smartphone out and clicking a button.
