The Taiwanese firm Foxconn, which produces the iPhone under a contract with Apple, showed the universal MIH Open Platform for electric cars.

Foxconn CEO William Way said the company plans to become Android in the electric car business. Recall that at present the operating system from Google is used by a large number of companies that produce smartphones.

Like platforms from other automakers, MIH Open Platform will provide an opportunity to develop electric cars of various formats and sizes.

As noted in Foxconn, the wheelbase can fluctuate between 2750 – 3100 mm. So, this value corresponds to relatively large cars (from class D and above), but it should be borne in mind that modern electric vehicles are increasingly getting a slightly different layout with shorter overhangs, for this reason this architecture will form the basis for compact models. According to the Taiwanese firm, by 2027, 10% of all new electric cars in the world will be built on their platform.
