Just yesterday Lamborghini was presenting the 2020 Huracán EVO Rear-Wheel Drive. And now, at the 2020 CES the Italian maker announced that the new Huracan Evo will be offered with Amazon Alexa support. This feature will make the Huracan EVO both more fun and safer to drive.
The Huracan EVO will be the first supercar to offer a connected infotainment system with digital services. Lamborghini will also be the first car manufacturer to deliver in-car control via Amazon Alexa, allowing drivers to adjust functions such as climate, interior lighting and seat heating with a simple voice command. Alexa will be integrated into the LDVI dynamic set-up (Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata) and will allow the driver to easy place calls, get directions, play music and audiobooks, check news and weather. The driver will also be able to control the garage gate, the lights, the thermostat and more.
“The Huracán EVO is an outstanding driver’s car, and connectivity enables our customers to focus on the driving, thus enhancing their Lamborghini experience,” says Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini. “Lamborghini is a future shaper, and this is the first time an automaker will deliver in-cabin car control through Amazon Alexa to bring together car controls as well as smart commands and Alexa’s standard capabilities.”
“Our vision is for Alexa to become a natural, intuitive part of the driving experience, and Lamborghini has embraced that by integrating Alexa directly into its onboard infotainment systems,” adds Ned Curic, Vice President of Alexa Auto at Amazon. “The integration will enable Lamborghini owners to enjoy the convenience of an intelligent voice service while focusing on the joy of the Lamborghini driving experience, and we expect it to set a new standard for in-car voice experiences when it ships this year.”
