Our focus on passenger experience and connectivity represents the beginning of a new category in the premium electric vehicle segment”.

FULLY AUTONOMOUS MODEL BY 2020

Pursuing a partnership and open ecosystem approach empowers our customers, partners and suppliers to rely on years of investments we’ve made in the cloud, including security and regulation, freeing up ICONIQ and AKKA to execute their bold ambitions of creating immersive experiences.”

AKKA brings experience in connected technologies, software, embedded electronics, car integration, electromechanical systems to its partnership with ICONIQ.

Philippe Jarre, CEO of AKKA’s International Business Unit commented: “We look forward to bringing our software development capabilities to this exciting project with ICONIQ and Microsoft to develop a full Level 5 autonomous car to be demonstrated for the first time at the Expo 2020 Dubai. With our demo car ‘Link & Go,’ we became a pioneer in autonomous driving 10 years ago and thanks to this project we continue to innovate and invent the future of mobility. Combining ICONIQ’s expertise in smart passenger vehicles and W Motors’ unsurpassed design, together we will build the next generation of mobility.”
