Lamborghini development boss Maurizio Reggiani told Autoblog as he unveiled the Huracán Evo’s touchscreen-based infotainment system in 2019. Amazon Alexa integration announced at CES 2020 is the next part of the march towards supercars that are as smart and connected as they are quick.
Lamborghini is the latest manufacturer to offer Amazon Alexa integration, starting with the Huracan Evo supercar. The 2020 Lamborghini Huracan Evo will be the first car to feature a new generation of Amazon Alexa Auto, which offers more advanced features than older versions available from other automakers. Life in the Lamborghini Huracan Evo just got even better.
By programming the voice assistant directly into the native infotainment system, rather than adding it as a third-party app, Lamborghini claims it achieved seamless integration that lets drivers control an extensive list of functions in the car, and in their home. If your butt is cold, you can ask Alexa to turn on the heated seats. You can also make calls, turn the map lights on or off, get directions, check the weather at your destination, and set the A/C, among other things. And, because Alexa speaks to connected devices, you can raise the temperature in your living room while doing hot laps at Watkins Glen, or turn on the porch lights as you pass a Porsche. The catch is that Alexa goes on strike if the Huracán isn’t connected to the internet.
Deliveries of Huracán Evo cars equipped with Amazon Alexa are slated to commence in spring 2020, and Alexa-equipped cars will be available through 2020 on AWD and the newly announced RWD models.
