Volvo’s Polestar Targets Infotainment Developers

Volvo’s premium all-electric performance sub-brand, Polestar, is targeting Android developers with its plans for future infotainment platforms.

It has presented a media platform designed to encourage developers to create innovative in-car digital experiences. The Polestar 2 claims to be one of the first global cars to feature a system of this type.

At the website, developers are asked to imagine their own concepts in the hope that future in-car infotainment can be improved for the benefit both users and carmakers. Ahead of his speech at Google I/O, Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar chief executive, said: “The Android platform which we have introduced in Polestar 2 has so much potential for innovation that we immediately identified the chance to engage with the developer community. We look forward to inspiring new ideas that could make the digital experience in Polestar 2 even better.”
