Our mission

Our mission is to create an inclusive mobility ecosystem that exceeds expectations for all Experience Seekers.

A sustainable future, a better life. Our vision is richer, fuller lives for individuals, and a brighter future  for us all.
Our values underpin our brand mission and vision. They are the principles that align us to them, and shape our path in achieving them.


When we exceed expectations, we make people feel cared for.

We take pride in what we do, but also how we do it. We’re committed to going the extra mile across our business to create an exceptional experience for everyone who touches our brand.


We don’t underestimate the value of imagination. 

We believe the best ideas combine creativity with cutting-edge technology. We think two heads are better than one, and that by working together we can achieve even greater things.


Progress is our constant. 

We’re always on: finding new and better solutions for our industry and working tirelessly in service of our people. We’ll keep moving until we’ve reached a fulfilling, sustainable future—and beyond.


Empathy is at the heart of our day-to-day.

We express a genuine desire to relate to our people and our users. We are a reliable partner, enabling everyone to do more and live better through inclusive mobility.
Our story began in Zhejiang, China in 1986. We soon became the first privately-owned Chinese automaker.

From our very first car off the line, we’ve been upholding three core principles of providing the highest value to the users, delivering high-quality products and experiences, and constant innovation in technology, safety and design, with a mission of making mobility inclusive.

In the years since, we’ve expanded across the globe, and each step in our journey has brought us closer to more inclusive mobility, a high-value ecosystem that enables people to see the world in full.


Our history tells the story of the four drivers that have brought our brand to this extraordinary moment.
Our commitment to offering high value to our users is reflected in every strategic decision.
We continue to demonstrate our pursuit of the most advanced technological innovations.
