Volvo Cars has announced it will use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 3rd generation digital cockpit technology to help power its infotainment system. Together with Google’s Android Automotive Operating System (AAOS), this upgrade will mean a faster infotainment system offering an ecosystem of features for future drivers of the Polestar 3, Volvo’s forthcoming electric SUV, and other upcoming EVs.
Volvo Cars Corp. is a global automaker owned by Chinese conglomerate Geely and based in Sweden. In recent years, the automaker has been making large strides toward electrification and carbon neutrality across its different marques and production processes, promising to be a fully-electric brand by 2030.
One of those brands includes Polestar, a joint venture between Volvo Cars and Geely Holding focused on zero-emission transportation. As Volvo continues to electrify its current lineup, its Polestar marque has found early success with the Polestar 2 BEV.
