Volkswagen said today (23 August) the automobile would evolve into a central hub in the Internet of Things.
“VWs will increasingly become digital devices on wheels,” sales chief Juergen Stackmann told a press conference in Berlin.
“Our customers will become part of an ecosystem that we have named ‘We’. This system complements the experience on wheels and enables customers to take their world into their vehicle,” he said, adding the brand hoped open interfaces would also encourage third parties to participate in creating a strong community by contributing their own software.
