Next-gen Volvo digital interiors to be powered by Snapdragon

At the ongoing Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2022 held in Las Vegas, Volvo and Qualcomm have formally announced their next step in collaboration in enhancing infotainment systems.

Next-generation Volvo and Polestar fully electric models will be using Qualcomm Technologies’ third-generation Snapdragon Cockpit Platforms to take the next level of a digital interior environment.

The new Snapdragon Cockpit Platform is capable of fulfilling highly demanding graphics, audio and artificial intelligence requirements in the forthcoming Polestar 3 and Volvo’s upcoming all-new fully electric model that is replacing the XC90, all while having a very low power consumption.

Using the latest Snapdragon Automotive Platforms, Volvo Cars’ next-generation infotainment system will be more than twice as fast, while its graphics generation will be up to ten times faster. The user interface will still be the familiar Google Android Automotive-based infotainment system.
