[News] Foxconn’s Tech Day on 10/18 to Showcase Registered Electric Vehicles and Unveil Mass Production Plans for Sample Cars

Foxconn is set to host its Technology Day event on October 18, with a significant emphasis on electric vehicles (EVs). Market insiders have revealed that Foxconn will showcase its first registered electric car based on the Model C platform and unveil its plans for mass production of the Model B sample vehicle.

Foxconn’s Technology Day will take place at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center, Hall 2, with Chairman Young Liu sharing the strategic vision of the Foxconn Group during the morning session. Foxconn will also unveil its electric vehicle and semiconductor strategies. Partners in Foxconn’s electric vehicle strategy will engage in discussions. It is expected that Jensen Huang, the founder of NVIDIA, a prominent chip design company, will share updates on their collaboration with Foxconn regarding automotive chips and applications during Foxconn Technology Day.

Foxconn recently released short videos on their official Facebook page, teasing the production version of their electric logistics concept vehicles, Model N and the urban-friendly Model B. On the upcoming Technology Day, which falls on the 18th of the month, around noon, Foxconn is set to unveil their new electric vehicles.

According to a report by the CNA, market insiders disclosed to reporters that Foxconn’s Technology Day will showcase the debut of Luxgen’s first registered electric passenger car, built around the Model C platform. The event is expected to reveal the production plans for the Model B and might also introduce new color options for the production version of Model B. However, Foxconn has declined to provide any official comments on these speculations.

As part of the Foxconn-Luxgen joint venture, Foxtron Vehicle has previously stated that the Model B sample vehicle is slated to make its debut in October. Market analysts expect the earliest launch of the Model B sample vehicle to target the Taiwanese market, with the progression aligning with the sales performance of Luxgen’s first electric passenger car.

Foxtron Vehicle has unveiled several EV prototypes, including Model B, Model C, Model E, and Model T. The production version of the Model T electric bus is already available in Taiwan, while the Model C electric passenger car has been designed for mass production and is expected to be delivered in the fourth quarter of this year. The Model C’s international release is forecasted for the third quarter of 2025.

[News] NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang Visits Taiwan, Collaborations with Foxconn Anticipated

As reported by CNA on October 16th, Market speculations rise as NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang’s visit to Taiwan for Foxconn Technology Day draws attention. Industry sources suggest potential collaborations in server and electric vehicle sectors.

Jensen Huang is set to visit Taiwan for Foxconn Technology Day, continuing discussions about possible partnerships between the tech giants. Industry experts have noted that the collaboration between NVIDIA and Foxconn extends primarily into the server sector, but there may also be untapped collaboration opportunities in the electric vehicle domain.

The market has been abuzz with speculation about Jensen Huang’s visit, following his visit to Taiwan in May. It is anticipated that he will participate in Foxconn Technology Day scheduled for October 18. Foxconn, the world’s largest contract electronics manufacturer, has remained tight-lipped about Huang’s visit. Nevertheless, the NVIDIA CEO has already arrived in Taiwan and was seen enjoying the local night markets, happily taking photos with fans.

Regarding Jensen Huang’s visit and the possible partnership with Foxconn, Dr. Arisa Liu , Research Fellow and Director of the Industrial Economic Information Database at Taiwan Institute of Economic Research (TIER), pointed out that while the primary focus of the collaboration between NVIDIA and Foxconn lies in the server sector, Foxconn is aggressively expanding its electric vehicle (EV) ventures, creating space for potential cooperation between the two tech giants in the EV field.

Dr. Liu emphasized that the recent negative press regarding artificial intelligence (AI) has raised concerns about the future growth prospects of AI. Additionally, NVIDIA is currently under investigation by the European Union for antitrust issues. Thus, Huang’s visit will be closely observed to determine whether it can help bolster the momentum in the supply chain.

The partnership between Foxconn and NVIDIA dates back to several years, with Jensen Huang holding a private meeting with Foxconn Chairman Young Liu during his visit to Taiwan in May. Last year, Foxconn’s subsidiary, Industrial Internet (IIoT) company Foxconn Industrial Internet (FII), announced the adoption of NVIDIA’s Grace CPU system for high-performance data centers and edge computing applications. FII introduced server systems powered by NVIDIA’s Grace CPU superchip, catering to the growing demand for efficient data centers.

In January of this year, Foxconn and NVIDIA announced a strategic partnership to collaborate on automotive and autonomous driving platforms. As part of the agreement, Foxconn became NVIDIA’s first-tier manufacturer, responsible for producing electronic control units (ECUs) based on NVIDIA’s DRIVE Orin system-on-a-chip (SoC) design for the global automotive market.

The tech industry will be closely monitoring Jensen Huang’s visit to Taiwan and the Foxconn Technology Day event for further insights into the evolving collaborations and strategic directions between Foxconn and NVIDIA.
