Autoliv has worked with GWM since 2003, when it developed and supplied seatbelts for Haval SUVs.
The collaboration is expected to result in new innnovations such as an overhead passenger airbag that deploys from the ceiling of the car, as a well as an integrated safety solution for autonomous vehicles.
Mikael Bratt, President, and CEO of Autoliv, Inc said: “Autoliv China will work closely with the GWM team, pooling Autoliv’s knowledge and strengths into our cooperation, enhancing both the safety and overall driving experience for global users.”
Jack Wei, Founder and Chairman of GWM said: “GWM and Autoliv have cooperated for more than 20 years, and I believe that today is the beginning of a new journey.”
