“We believe that our continued collaborative work with LG has been critical to deliver an outstanding Android cockpit for our Mégane E-TECH Electric revealed at IAA MOBILITY.”
“Our new IVI system not only meets but exceeds the growing demand for stable, advanced and user-friendly automotive software platforms,” said Dr. Kim Jin-yong, president of the LG Vehicle component Solutions Company.
“Through continuous innovation and collaboration with expert partners such as Renault, LG is committed to delivering differentiated in-vehicle experiences and further strengthening our position as a solutions provider for the global auto industry.”
