XPENG incorporated the ACCESS Twine™ for Car (Twine4Car) solution into its in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems. This addition promises a variety of apps, games, and prominent streaming services tailored for its upcoming electric vehicle lineup. This innovative step debuts with the fully electric XPENG P7 sedan, with Europe set to witness the first wave of deliveries this summer. Additionally, a unique offering for current XPENG car owners: they can enhance their IVI system to feature the Twine4Car via an over-the-air (OTA) software upgrade.
