Stellantis collaborates with Amazon for connected car services

Published On Jan 07, 2022 08:00:00 AM

Stellantis models launched globally from 2024 will use connected services provided by Amazon.

Stellantis will work with Amazon to develop a new SmartCockpit connectivity platform for vehicles launching globally from 2024. The two firms have partnered to “create a suite of software-based products and services that seamlessly integrate with customers’ digital lives and add value over time through regular over-the-air (OTA) software updates”.

Stellantis and Amazon ‘SmartCockpit’ platform: more information

The SmartCockpit platform will be rolled out to electric vehicles across the Stellantis portfolio that use the new STLA architecture, the first of which is due in 2024. In-depth details of its proposed functionality have yet to be detailed, but Stellantis said it will “seamlessly integrate with customers’ digital lives to create personalised, intuitive in-vehicle experiences”. 

The first hint at how it will be integrated into Stellantis vehicles came with the unveiling of the new Chrysler Airflow concept at CES 2022, which places a high-definition screen in front of each vehicle occupant and is equipped with advanced sharing and communication functionality.

Amazon’s involvement enables the integration of the firm’s Alexa voice assistant, which will be used for navigation, maintenance, commercial and payment functions. The SmartCockpit platform will also include an App Store to offer “curated services and experiences”, while an adaptive interface will present information and features to best suit each occupant. 

Each Stellantis vehicle can use a different variation of the platform. As an example, the company said, the Chrysler Pacifica MPV could offer a family trip planner with recommendations for media playback, points of interest and restaurants en route, while SUVs from sibling brand Jeep could come with a dedicated virtual coach for tackling off-road terrain. 

As part of the new partnership, Stellantis will work with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to train more than 5,000 developers and engineers in cloud technologies by 2024. The partnership with Amazon builds on a joint venture between Stellantis and Taiwanese technology firm Foxconn, called Mobile Drive, which is focused on developing digital cockpits and connected services.

Is tying up with Amazon for the new connectivity platform a good move by Stellantis? Let us know in the comments section.
