Along with getting used on the STLA Mind technological platform, the semiconductors from the partnership “will probably be utilized throughout the Foxconn EV ecosystem,” the information launch mentioned.
Foxconn, greatest often called Apple’s iPhone manufacturing associate, is turning into more and more concerned in EV improvement and manufacturing over the previous yr, seeing the rising curiosity within the class as a potent progress driver.
The nonbinding memorandum of understanding on semiconductors is Foxconn’s second partnership with Stellantis. In Might, the businesses introduced the Cellular Drive three way partnership to develop “sensible cockpits,” human-machine intefaces (HMI) and companies.
