Jaguar I-Pace Now Available with Alexa
Jaguar’s I-Pace all-electric SUV will now feature Amazon Alexa voice control, allowing for voice interaction with the carmaker’s Pivi Pro infotainment system features that includes navigation, media playback, phone calls, and compatible smart devices. Following its debut on the I-Pace, all new Jaguars with Pivi Pro will come with Alexa.
Alexa voice control will enable a whole slew of requests – for example, ‘Alexa, navigate me to home’ – to be done by voice. Alexa also makes it possible to control compatible smart home features such as heating and lighting from the vehicle.
For Australian owners who already have an I-Pace with the Pivi Pro system, they will be offered the Alexa upgrade in a software-over-the-air update. Owners will be notified via a message displayed in their vehicle’s touchscreen.
“The seamless integration of Amazon Alexa with our Pivi Pro infotainment system gives customers simple, intuitive voice control of regularly used features, making the driving experience even more enjoyable,” said Alex Heslop, Director of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Jaguar Land Rover.
“The fact we can also offer this new feature to existing customers proves the value of our software over-the-air-updates.”
