In 2018, Nio and Changan New Energy founded Avatr for the first time. Nio eventually broke away from the JV for budgetary reasons. It was superseded in the joint project by CATL. CATL has more than 17% of the shares, with Changan owning 40%. The various investment funds own the remaining portion. Huawei is the principal provider for this project. As of right now, Avatr offers two different model options: the recently introduced 12 hatchback and the 11 SUV.
