Visteon and Qualcomm Technologies said Geely Auto’s new Xingyue L flagship SUV would be the first production vehicle to use their co-developed intelligent cockpit .

This integrates Visteon’s SmartCore cockpit domain controller with the third generation Qualcomm Snapdragon automotive cockpit platforms into ECARX’s intelligent cockpit system and the three companies claimed to have established a new benchmark for integrated cockpits.

“Visteon’s work with ECARX and Qualcomm Technologies brings a personalised digital experience to the automotive industry,” Sachin Lawande, president and CEO of Visteon, said. “Each company’s technical teams have shown their skills in development, design and integration, and that they are capable of delivering a modern digital cockpit experience for the global auto industry.”

Using the Snapdragon Automotive Cockpit Platforms, Visteon’s SmartCore supports various human machine interface (HMI) functions to provide drivers and passengers a variety of personalised information and services. The intelligent cockpit can also receie feature upgrades wirelessly over-the-air, eliminating the need to replace hardware to further extend the platform’s lifecycle.

The Xingyue L SUV made its debut at the 2021 Shanghai Auto Show and is the first production vehicle to feature this cockpit.

Features include:

  • Artificial intelligence-based voice assistance
  • A premium intelligent centre-control monitor
  • Immersive driving information and entertainment options for passengers

“With its advanced intelligent cockpit, open connected ecosystem and market-leading user base, ECARX is rapidly becoming one of the world’s leading automotive intelligence technology companies,” said CEO Ziyu Shen.

Visteon and Qualcomm have worked together since 2018, developing intelligent cockpits for ECARX.
