A belief in simplicity
The new user interface promises to not only transform how new Volvo cars are experienced – it will also transform how they look and feel. Two qualities that unite Volvo Cars and Apple are a belief in simplicity and a dedication to functionality. And it’s these qualities that will come to define the interior of all new Volvo cars.
“Apple’s clean and intuitive user interface is a perfect match with Volvo's Scandinavian design approach and our focus on fluid functionality,” says Håkan Samuelsson, President and CEO of Volvo Cars.
Apple CarPlay integrates seamlessly with Volvo Cars’ new user interface. Visually, it becomes part of the on-board system, displaying well-known icons for Apple applications. Drivers will immediately recognise their basic iPhone applications, such as phone, messages, music and navigation.
