Lamborghini is set to integrate an array of new connected services into its Huracán EVO range in 2021, consisting of updated navigation, safety, comfort and entertainment functions.
Under the name Lamborghini Connect, the new services will connect to the Lamborghini UNICA app, and will include vehicle status reports, car-finder functions and geofencing functions such as alerts to nearby valet services. These will join the manufacturer’s existing functions for navigation and entertainment, with updates now available over the air to the infotainment system.
Following widespread use in other sectors, Lamborghini will be the first automotive manufacturer to integrate Amazon Alexa into a vehicle. Drivers of the latest range of Huracáns will be able to adjust lighting, climate, seat heating and navigation, and also make phone calls and change entertainment using voice commands through the Alexa platform. Android Auto can also be specified as an option, along with the already available web radio and Apple CarPlay.
Alexa will also be integrated into the LDVI (Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata), enabling a simple voice command to give occupants access to real-time feedback on the vehicle’s driving dynamics, such as torque vectoring, dynamic steering and traction control, via the infotainment screen.
The Alexa function also enables owners to connect with other Alexa-enabled devices such as entry gates, home thermostats and lighting systems, which can all be controlled via voice commands in the Lamborghini’s cabin. The feature is available now in Europe and North America, with further markets added in 2022.
Lamborghini says the collaboration with Amazon and its Alexa service will allow continuous functionality updates and enable both parties to develop connectivity services for the future.
