Great Wall has been stepping up its investments in this area as it transforms from a traditional vehicle assembler to a technology-driven mobility company. It unveiled its Smart Coffee brand in July, calling it the “digital engine" of its transition, covering autonomous driving, electrical systems and smart cabins.

“Great Wall will rapidly grow in the chip industry through strategic investment, partnership, and self development," the company said in a statement Monday. Horizon released a separate statement, saying it had received a strategic investment from Great Wall. Neither disclosed financial details.
