Renault Mégane E-Tech Gets LG Infotainment
LG Infotainment System Debuts In Renault Mégane E-Tech Electric.
Based on Google Android Automotive and Android 10, LG’s new IVI system is optimized for convenience and connectivity.
Renault have been delivering electric vehicles for some time now and they have concentrated their efforts on affordable electric vehicles for mass adoption and not luxury products.
This is slowly changing as in September 2021 Renault unveiled their Generation 2.0 electric vehicles, starting with the all-new Mégane E-TECH Electric. The Mégane E-TECH Electric’s motor is all-new and produces up to 160kW and 300Nm of torque with 4 levels of regenerative braking. The motor doesn’t require rare earth metals and weighs just 145kg, including the weight of the clutch.
PRESS RELEASE: LG Electronics’ (LG) next-generation In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) system will make its debut in the new Renault Mégane E-TECH Electric in 2022.
The stunning new vehicle equipped with LG’s advanced IVI system was unveiled to strong praise at IAA MOBILITY 2021, the world’s largest mobility conference held recently in Munich, Germany.
The software that powers the IVI system was developed by LG in partnership with Renault and is based on Google Android Automotive. It is the first software developed by LG utilizing Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), a set of principles and processes to help large organizations adopt agile methodologies to develop and deliver high-quality products and services faster.
This software operates independently from the vehicle’s hardware to provide a variety of convenience-enhancing features such as the ability to update the operating system over-the-air and remotely check vehicle charging status.
What’s more, LG’s Android-based IVI system is the first system based on Android 10 to receive certification from Google Automotive Services (GAS). The platform offers intelligent infotainment services and easy access to various Google apps including Google Assistant, Google Maps and Google Play via the Center Information Display (CID).
With its sleek, intuitive Human Machine Interface (HMI) and convenient user experience, the system leverages LG’s growing capabilities as a vehicle solutions provider to meet the diverse needs of today’s motorists and make car travel more enjoyable.
As an innovative partner for future mobility, LG’s Vehicle component Solutions (VS) Company has earned a reputation as a global top-tier supplier of IVI systems and Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) that reflect the very latest developments and trends in mobility.
The business unit is continuously expanding its capabilities and market reach through various efforts, including the acquisition of automotive lighting and headlight systems provider, ZKW Group, and the recent joint venture with Magna International to create the LG Magna e-Powertrain, which launched in July.
