Porsche says that its 2022 Taycan and Taycan Cross Turismo models, due to arrive toward the end of this year, will feature several interior technology enhancements. These will include the integration of Android Auto in the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system, as well as the availability of Remote Park Assist as an option for the first time on the Taycan. The latter is an optional assistance system whereby the process of parking the car can be controlled via a smartphone, without the driver needing to be at the wheel.
The sixth generation of PCM has been fitted to the Taycan since its introduction in 2019. However, it initially only featured integration of Apple Music and Apple Podcasts, along with Apple CarPlay support for the iPhone. With the latest integration of Android Auto, the system will be able to interface with smartphones using the Google Android operating system when plugged in via the USB-C port. This will allow selected phone functions and smartphone apps to be operated via PCM 6.0 or the Google Assistant voice commands.
Porsche also states that its Voice Pilot voice assistant has been enhanced to better understand everyday commands; the navigation system is also claimed to calculate routings more quickly and display information more clearly thanks to redesigned graphics. To this end, the layout and operating system have also been revamped slightly: there are now five menu options instead of three on the left side of the central display, and the icons can be arranged individually.
