Tomtom says it has been selected by Lucid Motors as provider of maps, navigation and Tomtom Traffic for its first vehicle, the Lucid Air, a premium electric brand planned to enter the US market in 2019.

With the deal, Lucid Air drivers will have the navigation suite of TomTom navigation components. Among key features and services are automotive-grade digital Maps, provided in industry standard NDS format and TomTom navigation software, NavKit; as well as TomTom Traffic.

“Our deal with Lucid Motors is [an] example of an OEM trusting TomTom as a future-proof partner for the connected car,” said TomTom Automotive MD, Antoine Saucier.

For her part, Lucid Software Engineering manager, Jane Nguyen, added: “TomTom’s navigation suite, including real-time traffic information and turn-by-turn directions, will be an important component of the Lucid Air’s connected, natural and adaptive user experience.”
