Written by Fri 14 Jan 2022

In a bid to improve their connected car offering and boost the sustainability of their delivery fleet, retail giant Amazon recently announced a new agreement with Maserati’s parent company, Stellantis. As part of this collaboration, the two firms will work together to create advanced software for Stellantis’ new digital cabin platform, STLA SmartCockpit, from 2024.

Carlos Tavares, CEO of Stellantis, points to the value of Amazon’s technology and software as one of the main reasons for this partnership. “Working together with Amazon is an integral part of our capability building roadmap, based on both developing internal competencies and decisive collaborations with tech leaders, and it will bring significant expertise to one of our key technology platforms, STLA SmartCockpit,” explains Tavares.

For Amazon, the deal will provide improvements to the sustainability levels of their last mile delivery service, as well as other enhancements that are set to benefit the in-car experience for drivers. By embracing the cutting-edge technology offered by Stellantis, including their artificial intelligence and cloud solutions, the car fleet will be transformed into personalised living spaces that will provide a more enjoyable experience than ever before.

Under the terms of the plan, the new Ram ProMaster Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) will be available to Amazon in 2023, which will improve the sustainable delivery network of Amazon. The online giant will also be the first commercial customer of this vehicle.

“Amazon has built the technology, expertise, and culture of innovation to be a world leader in cloud computing, artificial intelligence, and machine learning,” said Andrew Jassy, Amazon’s CEO, in a statement.” We’ve used these capabilities to make life better for customers around the world through products and services like Alexa, Kindle, and Fire TV — and with AWS, we’ve helped thousands of companies transform themselves and their industries.”
