Hyundai Plumps for Nvidia Infotainment

Hyundai Motor Group will roll-out Nvidia infotainment systems to all of its brand models from 2022.

It has announced all new models badged Hyundai, Kia and Genesis will host the Nvidia Drive connected car platform. From entry-level to premium vehicles, all future models will feature infotainment systems powered by the platform as standard. It includes a hardware and software stack combining audio, video, navigation, connectivity and artificial intelligence (AI)-based services.

The automaker’s decision follows successful consumer response to the platform being used in the Genesis GV80 and G80 vehicles since the two companies began working together in 2015. Both have also been collaborating on an advanced digital cockpit, due to be launched in late 2021.

Paul Choo, senior vice-president of electronics tech unit at Hyundai Motor Group, said: “At Hyundai Motor Group, we are committed to delivering greater value, safety, functionality and enjoyment over the lifetime of the car. The Nvidia Drive platform is proven – it is scalable, energy-efficient and has the performance to support our next generation of software-defined vehicles.”
