Electric vehicle manufacturer XPENG has announced that it has selected the ACCESS Twine for Car (Twine4Car) in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) solution to provide apps and games, including prominent streaming services, for its new range of electric vehicles.
The new partnership will commence with the all-electric XPENG P7 sedan, which will be available in European this summer, while existing XPENG drivers will also have the option to upgrade their cars to include Access’ Twine4Car IVI through an over-the-air (OTA) software update.
“We want to provide our drivers in Europe with a new level of sophistication and ease by using a more thoughtful approach to mobility,” explained Eric Xu, VP International Markets, XPENG. “We selected ACCESS Twine4Car as our in-vehicle infotainment provider to create a mobility experience that’s more intuitive and enjoyable—our vehicles are designed to move people emotionally as well as physically.”
Masahiro Aono, CEO, ACCESS Europe, added, “Our unique ability to provide an IVI system designed for next-generation cars combined with a dedicated app store featuring awesome games, must-have apps, and leading video services, enables XPENG to provide infotainment experiences that will delight its drivers. Whether its drivers wanting to stream their favourite songs and podcasts, or passengers looking to watch their favourite videos and access their favourite social media platforms, we look forward to enabling connected infotainment experiences that match the beauty and quality of XPENG’s exciting new electric vehicles.”
Twine4Car acts as a central hub for all in-vehicle services and brings content from global media partners, providing a wide range of apps, TV services, games, and VoD offerings for XPENG’s electric vehicles.
