Saab Unveils Android Infotainment System at Geneva

Saab have never been regarded as producing cars that drivers would dream of having but their extensive experience in car manufacture has led to them being renowned for turbocharging, safety, environmental consideration and more importantly significant advancements in ergonomics.

Today we have news that the Swedish company have unveiled their new Android-based Infotainment system IQon at the Geneva Motor Show. It may not be the first to produce such a system but the IQon platform from Saab offers more than just the usual features you would expect from an in-car infotainment system.

As 4WheelsNews reports in their article the IQon features entertainment and navigation which you’d expect but also includes lots more. It also has an App Store with a wide range of multi-media functions, online services and apps, more significantly it will feature sensors all over the car allowing access to over 500 signals from the inside and outside the vehicle.

These signals measure barometric pressure, temperature (inside and outside), engine torque and speed as well as speed of the car, steering wheel angle and much more. Saab’s Johan Formgren says ‘there are no limits to the potential’ of Saab’s IQon.

More details are available at 4WheelsNews or you can check out the Saab Newsroom. Also check out the video below to see the IQon system in action. What do you think of Saab’s Infotainment system? We’d love to hear your thoughts.
