Mr Hubertus Troska spoke highly of LeEco's SEE plan and indicated that electric, smart, socialized and internet-connected vehicles would take a dominant position in the automobile industry in the near future. Mr Troska said Mercedes-Benz as a traditional auto company has realized the coming of the "new world", a world with electric, smart, socialized and internet-based car.

Mr. Ding Lei said that user demands will tremendously shape the landscape of the future automobile industry, and LeEco has been attaching great importance to an open Ecosystem. He added that LeEco is very open to partnership opportunities.

LeEco's partnership with Daimler AG won't be the first, as the company has already teamed up with the brands like British manufacturer of  luxury sports car Aston Martin, an electric car startup Faraday Future and Beijing Automotive. Jia Yueting, founder and CEO of Le Holdings, said that LeEco's first concept Super Car is expected to be unveiled at the upcoming auto show in Beijing in April.
