PSA And Huawei Give DS 7 Crossback Strong Connectivity Credentials

With the help of Huawei’s OceanConnect IoT platform, PSA has put together the Connected Vehicle Modular Platform (CVMP), which gives the DS 7 Crossback a wide array of connected features.

Thanks to CVMP, customers can access services such as connected navigation, natural language voice recognition and a connected service portal via the car’s dashboard screen. Also accessible are the vehicle’s maintenance status, plus a history of driving styles and journeys taken.

According to PSA, new services for private customers and fleet managers, such as infotainment services, remote software updates, navigation mapping, personal assistant, as well as various diagnostic and maintenance functions, will be added to these features regularly.

Huawei’s OceanConnect IoT platform is aimed at connected cars, smart homes and smart cities. All digital interactions between the car and the cloud are said to be secure, as the customer and car data are both encrypted. This platform will be used for all of the French group’s connected vehicles.

“By deploying its new platform connecting the vehicle to the Internet Of Things, Groupe PSA enriches its service offering and makes mobility easier for all its customers. With Huawei, well known for its innovation capacity, we are pleased to show today the first tangible result of our partnership providing our customers with a new experience enabled by the CVMP. DS 7 CROSSBACK is the first vehicle to benefit from this joint project, which will ultimately be rolled out to all group vehicles,” said PSA exec, Jean Leflour.

Aside from its connected features, the DS 7 Crossback also boasts a wide range of driving assistance technologies. As for what we can expect in the future, a new E-Tense 4×4 300 HP petrol-hybrid model should be available in 2019, with a rumored price tag of around £50,000 ($69,765).
