In order to put their next generation of infotainment systems into practice, Volvo Car Corporation has partnered with electronic equipment supplier Mitsubishi Electric. The move was made so that the Swedish automaker would have a leg up on the competition in regards to an automotive aspect difficult to stand out in. World-class connectivity between passengers and their vehicles is the ultimate goal held by the partnership which should allow for intuitive access to support, information and entertainment on a level yet to be seen.
“We are very happy to have Mitsubishi Electric Corporation as a partner. Their world-leading knowledge and experience will bring the infotainment system in our cars up to an entirely new level,” said Stefan Jacoby, President and CEO of Volvo Car Corporation. Both the central module and overall design of the new infotainment system will be supplied by Mitsubishi Electric. Aided by Volvo’s recently created Sensus brand, the touch navigation will be specially catered to future Volvo vehicles so that a driver’s “digital world” can be accessed in a flash.
