Chinese automaker SAIC Motor relies on Here Technologies for the connected infotainment systems of its MG brand - in the regions of Southeast Asia, Oceania, Western Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and India.
Here services used in MG infotainment systems include Here Traffic, which provides real-time traffic flow information to help drivers get to their destination more safely and quickly. In addition, SAIC Motor's system includes other connected services such as Here Parking, Here EV Charge Points and Here Fuel Prices, which provide drivers with dynamic and relevant information about their route.
The Here SDK is integrated with i-SMART, MG's app. The app gives drivers access to features of the connected infotainment system. Here SDK provides location-based features such as maps, route calculation, geocoding, as well as search, traffic alerts, public transit information and navigation.
With global map coverage and country-specific market knowledge, Here supports SAIC Group's growth outside of China. All MG brand vehicles will use Here's services. They are to be available immediately in Southeast Asia, Oceania and Western Europe. A rollout is planned for Latin America, the Middle East and India within the next few months.
