Mitsubishi Electric Chosen by Volvo to develop next-generation automotive infotainment systems for all Volvo vehicles
Mitsubishi Electric has been chosen by Volvo as a partner to develop next-generation automotive infotainment systems for all Volvo vehicles launched from November 2013 onwards. Since 1969, Mitsubishi Electric has been supplying Volvo with car audios, navigation systems and other infotainment equipment. All intuitive technology that is available at the driver’s fingertip is included in Volvo’s recently established Sensus brand. Sensus is the interface that promotes instinctive communication with the car, connecting it to the driver’s digital world – and the central Infotainment module is a core component in this web of interactivity.
Mitsubishi Electric Automotive Europe B.V.’s Gothenburg Technical Center in Gothenburg, Sweden will drive the development of car navigation systems, car audios and audio head units for Volvo, and support Mitsubishi Electric’s joint-development initiatives with the auto manufacturer. The Gothenburg Technical Center was established in 1995 as a base for automotive equipment development, and currently has a workforce of 40.
