CEO Carlos Tavares says Stellantis has its sights set on becoming an "automotive tech company," and it's collaborating with Amazon to make this vision a reality.
Stellantis has committed to investing $35 billion by 2025 in electrification and software as it rolls out new tech platforms. It wants to turn its vehicles into personalized living spaces letting passengers take their digital lifestyles with them.
Amazon will be a key partner in this pursuit.
Stellantis said it will collaborate with Amazon to deliver software for its upcoming STLA SmartCockpit platform debuting in 2024. The cockpit software will offer artificial intelligence-based applications including navigation, Alexa-enabled voice assistance, an e-commerce marketplace and payment services.
"This partnership is an enabler of the Stellantis strategy," Tavares said during CES last week. "It's an enabler in certain areas of our technology road map, certain areas of our business. And, by the way, it's a very balanced partnership from a financial standpoint."
