LAMBORGHINI GETS NEW TECH UPGRADES THROUGH COLLABORATION WITH AMAZON ALEXA




Automobili Lamborghini is enhancing the connected services being offered such as navigation, comfort, safety and entertainment functions.


"Lamborghini Connect" will add new ‘peace of mind’ services through connection to the Lamborghini UNICA app: which provides a car-finder function, vehicle status report and geofencing functions including remote speed and valet alerts, join the existing in-car connected services related to Navigation and Entertainment. Remote updates for the Lamborghini Infotainment System (LIS) are now also available ‘over the air’.


A first for any car company is Lamborghini's incorporation of comprehensive in-car control by Amazon Alexa. This means Web radio and Apple CarPlay, whichh are already available on the Huracán EVO, are joined by Alexa and Android Auto on Huracán EVO 2021 models, specified with the ‘Smartphone Interface and Connected Services’ option. Drivers of the Huracán EVO can adjust in-car functions such as climate, lighting and seat heating, as well as control navigation, telephone calls and entertainment with a simple ‘Alexa’ voice command, leaving them to focus on the road.





Alexa is being integrated within the LDVI (Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata) system in the four-wheel drive Huracán EVO. Voice command also accesses real-time feedback on the Huracán EVO’s driving dynamics via the LIS screen, such as torque vectoring, Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS), and traction control.


The Alexa function provides convenience that goes beyond the cars, by allowing Lamborghini owners to connect with other Alexa-enabled devices. Through voice command, drivers can control home thermostat, turn lights on or off at home, and access other remote applications directly from their Lamborghini. "Lamborghini Connected" also provides easy over the air updates for the system.. The feature is available right now in most of Europe and North America where Alexa is available. The system will be offered on Lamborghini models in even more markets in 2022.


For existing Huracán EVO owners connected services can be retrofitted at authorized Lamborghini dealers at no-charge. Optional upgrades will also be offered.


Exeuctives with both companies say the strategic collaboration between Lamborghini and Amazon will allow continuous updating of Alexa’s functionality within Lamborghini models.
