Volkswagen Cloud service will enter the American and Chinese marketsFebruary 28, 2019
In October 2018, Volkswagen announced the creation of Automotive Cloud, a virtual space in which all the company’s digital and mobile services will be located.
Volkswagen’s cloud service was primarily developed for the European market. But quite recently, the company announced its intention to bring a new service to the market of the United States, as well as the Middle Kingdom. To expand its network to new markets, VW will open a new Seattle Research Center.
In essence, the system created together with Microsoft will help VW create various services for its customers, as well as optimize the way their vehicles interact with each other. To make its cars compatible with the cloud, VW announced the launch of a new software architecture. For the first time, the new software will appear in 2020.
While the German concern has not said about the timing of the full completion of work on the “cloud”. But after its commissioning, it will become the largest e-ecosystem in the automotive world. For car owners, this means being able to access services such as multimedia streaming, a connected smart home, a car office, a personal assistant and, of course, parking and charging.
“Volkswagen Automotive Cloud will become the global technological foundation of our digital ecosystem,” said Christian Sanger, head of Volkswagen for digital cars and services, in a statement.
