Stellantis and Amazon Collaborating on Connected Vehicles

SEATTLE and AMSTERDAM — Amazon and the automaker Stellantis are working together to “transform” the in-vehicle experience for Stellantis customers.

Amazon and Stellantis entered a series of global, multi-year agreements partly to help advance the mobility industry’s transition to a “sustainable, software-defined future,” according to Amazon this month.

Stellantis will accelerate its shift to becoming a sustainable mobility tech company through the relationship, which involves Amazon Devices, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and Amazon Last Mile. 

Stellantis and Amazon will collaborate to deploy Amazon’s technology and software expertise across Stellantis’ organization, including vehicle development, building connected in-vehicle experiences, and training the next generation of automotive software engineers. 

The two companies will create a suite of software-based products and services that seamlessly integrate with customers’ digital lives and add value over time through regular over-the-air (OTA) software updates.

The collaboration brings together Amazon’s leadership and innovation in digital experiences, cloud computing, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML) with Stellantis’ automotive engineering excellence and portfolio of 14 vehicle brands.

“We’re excited to collaborate with Stellantis to transform the automotive industry and re-invent the in-vehicle experience,” said Andy Jassy, CEO, Amazon. 

“We are inventing solutions that will help enable Stellantis to accelerate connected and personalized in-vehicle experiences, so that every moment in motion can be smart, safe, and tailored to each occupant. Together, we will create the foundation for Stellantis to transform from a traditional automaker into a global leader in software-driven development and engineering.”

Carlos Tavares, CEO of Stellantis, said working 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.”

“By leveraging artificial intelligence and cloud solutions, we will transform our vehicles into personalized living spaces and enhance the overall customer experience, making our vehicles the most wanted, most captivating place to be, even when not driving,” Tavares said.
