Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi tap Google to power in-car systems

This week, the Renault Nissan Mitsubishi Alliance, the world's largest maker of cars, signed a deal with Alphabet's Google to be able to use Google Maps, Google Assistant and the Android OS in its vehicles. "Our ambition is to offer the same customer experience inside the car as on a mobile phone," Hadi Zablit, the head of business development at the Alliance, told The Financial Times. The ability to use Google Maps and operate climate control and more with your voice using Google Assistant definitely will provide an edge over other car makers.
