What is it?

Volkswagen's use of groundbreaking tech is yet another exhibit of its innovative endeavors. This technology partnership with Cerence Inc. has led to the Cerence Chat Pro, an automotive-grade ChatGPT integration. This has created an intelligent driving experience like no other.

The new AI collaboration will give Volkswagen driver’s access to an ever-growing intelligence database right from the comfort of your car! This will be available in the electric ID range including the ID.3, ID.4, ID.5 and ID.7 and the all-new Tiguan, Passat, and the new Golf. The integration of ChatGPT will open up new thrilling opportunities for enriched communication and data access.

ChatGPT offers a plethora of exciting features. From controlling infotainment and navigation to adjusting the air conditioning, answering general knowledge questions, and even providing additional information on various topics. This fantastic update ensures a safe, informative, and interactive journey — all without lifting a finger.

How does it work?

Drivers simply activate their voice assistant by saying, "Hello IDA," and the power of artificial intelligence is at their disposal. The best part? There's no need for additional accounts, apps or activation. Your car will prioritize your tasks, making it your ultimate personal assistant on wheels.

ChatGPT also boasts of utmost privacy and security. In the rare case that IDA cannot promptly answer your query, it will be forwarded to the AI, without any access to vehicle data. And to ensure top-level data protection, your interactions are deleted immediately.

This unprecedented integration signifies a new era in automotive technology and experience. Volkswagen's leading-edge approach continues to render new, groundbreaking experiences, offering drivers added value and a taste of the future - today!
