A screenshot of a trademark application shared by a tipster shows that some applications have been approved while some may be opposed or objected. But there are speculations that the companies will try to apply for the trademark again. The trademarks, however, do not indicate the range of electric vehicles that the BBK Electronics subsidiaries are working on developing.

The trademarks shared by Roy relate to driverless cars (autonomous cars), boats, self-balancing scooters and boards, remote control vehicles, trolleys, tyres, civilian drones and anti-theft devices. The trademarks were filed by these Chinese tech giants earlier this year and date back to 2018. They have been filed under class 12. It should be noted that for companies that indicate interest in the space when applying for a trademark, it remains uncertain. Is the launch really on the cards. Since there has been no confirmation from brands on the development of EVs, this information should be treated with a pinch of salt.
OnePlus has filed a trademark for the term OnePlus Life. It does not give any information about the product or products that it is planning to launch in the eclectic vehicles segment. The trademark filed by Realme stands for the words Realme TechLife and TL Device.
This comes at a time when Chinese manufacturers are ramping up their research and development in the EV industry. Recently, Chinese EV manufacturer Xpeng Display Its flying vehicles that can also be driven on public roads. The flying car, developed by HT Aero, a subsidiary of Xpeng, is said to be unveiled in 2024. The company has also promised to equip the flying car with several safety measures.
last month, Xiaomi CEO Lei Juno said That the company will start mass production of its cars by the first half of 2024. This date marks the next major target for the company’s new EV division, which was announced earlier this year.
