The Volkswagen Group has announced at the current Country Electronics Show (CES) 2024 in Las Vegas that it will provide ChatGPT in select cars and SUVs worldwide in partnership with Cerence Inc. 

Beginning in the second quarter of 2024, Volkswagen plans to integrate ChatGPT, an AI chatbot, into its vehicles. With this decision, VW becomes the first mainstream brand to provide ChatGPT as a feature. 

At CES 2024, they said that because ChatGPT in cars doesn’t verify your vehicle’s data, your information is safe. Through this connection, modern AI technology is intended to improve the driving experience. 

According to the manufacturer, current MEB and MQB EVO automobiles will come equipped with ChatGPT.

Integration with ChatGPT, Starting with the VW MEB and MQB EVO Models

According to Volkswagen, all IDA-equipped Volkswagen cars will eventually have access to an expanding AI database that will read researched content aloud to customers while they are driving.

The new chatbot is offered in conjunction with the latest infotainment available in MEB-based models like the ID.7, ID.4, ID.5, and ID.3, and on the new MQB EVO platform based line-up that includes the all-new Tiguan, the current-gen Passat, and the Golf. 

Car Data Is Not Accessible Through ChatGPT

According to Volkswagen, you may use ChatGPT without having to install a new app, create a new account, or do any of these things. 

Simply say “Hello, IDA” or touch the button on the steering wheel to start the voice assistant. IDA automatically decides which task to perform first: searching for a destination, adjusting the temperature, or performing a vehicle function. 

To guarantee the highest level of data safety, queries and responses are instantly destroyed; ChatGPT does not obtain access to any vehicle data.

So Now the Question Arises will the Indian Models have this Option? 

Currently, Volkswagen India does not have any MEB- or MQB EVO-based automobiles for sale in the nation, and it is unknown when ChatGTP-based technology will be made available there. 

Although the ID.4 EV, which is based on the MEB platform, is expected to launch at some point this year, it is unclear whether this capability will be included in the new EV headed for India.
