Details of the deal, which is huge given that traditional carmakers have so far been hesitant to hand over the data from their infotainment systems to rivals given the potential streams that can be generated from there, have not been made public.
On Tuesday, in what is likely to be a huge boost to Google’s Android operating system, the Wall Street Journal stated, the Renault-Nissan alliance has selected the operating system to power its next-generation media system.
The development comes at a time when carmakers have been hesitant to hand over their infotainment systems to rivals given the potential revenue streams that the consumer data could provide.
As per the WSJ report, the Renault-Nissan alliance, which sells more vehicles than any other carmaker, will debut the new system in its vehicles from 2021
Neither Renault nor Nissan declined to reveal the terms of the deal.
