Amazon and automaker Stellantis announced a series of global, multi-year agreements aiming to transform the in-vehicle experience for millions of Stellantis customers and advance the mobility industry’s transition to a software-defined future.
Stellantis will accelerate its shift to becoming a sustainable mobility tech company through this relationship, which involves Amazon Devices, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and Amazon Last Mile.
The new partners will collaborate to deploy Amazon’s technology and software expertise across Stellantis’ organisation, including vehicle development, building connected in-vehicle experiences, and training the next generation of automotive software engineers. Together, the two companies will 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 software updates.
“We are inventing solutions that will help enable Stellantis to accelerate connected and personalized in-vehicle experiences, so that every moment in motion can be smart, safe, and tailored to each occupant,” said Andy Jassy, CEO of Amazon. “Together, we will create the foundation for Stellantis to transform from a traditional automaker into a global leader in software-driven development and engineering.”
The collaboration will focus on several areas in building STLA SmartCockpit which will run in millions of Stellantis vehicles globally starting in 2024. The software-defined platform is said to integrate with customers’ digital lives to create personalised, intuitive in-vehicle experiences through AI-enhanced applications for entertainment,
