Leading the way

The future is in smart, electric and autonomous vehicles,
and we aim to lead the way.


Blue Sky Coming

Our Chinese name, Weilai, means Blue Sky Coming and this is represented in our symbol. The top is about the sky, openness, vision, the future. The bottom part is about the earth, direction, action and forward momentum. Blue Sky Coming is our guiding philosophy and stands for our commitment to a brighter tomorrow.




Next Generation

We’re the next generation
car company.

Feel positive again about owning a car

The automotive industry is on the cusp of profound change. We believe it isn’t just products and technology that must change; it is how people use these products, and their entire ownership experience. We want you to feel positive again about owning a car.


Our aspiration is to shape
a joyful lifestyle for our users.
