Stellantis, Foxconn team up to make cars more connected

MILAN (AP) — Carmaker Stellantis and Taiwan’s Foxconn have announced plans to develop a jointly operated automotive supplier focusing on technology to make vehicles more connected, including artificial intelligence-based applications and 5-G communications.  Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares said the services that will be developed through the tie-up “will mark the next great evolution of our industry,”  alongside fully electrified and hybrid powertrains.  The deal brings together Stellantis, the world’s 4th-largest automaker formed this year by the merger of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and PSA Peugeot, and Foxconn, a major supplier of iPhones.
