In August, we wrote that QNX was in the middle of an ongoing in-car mobile device integration evolution. QNX, which is a subsidiary of BlackBerry, announced today that it has reached a new milestone, saying that its technology is currently powering over 50 million vehicles.
According to a report from research form IHS Automotive, QNX has captured over 50% market share and is a “clear leader in automotive software.” The majority of the major automobile manufacturers use QNX in their vehicles, including Acura, Audi, BMW, Chrysler, Ford, GM, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar, Land Rover, Maserati, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Toyota, and Volkswagen.
Andrew Poliak, global director of business development at QNX, said, “The automotive industry is constantly evolving, but as always, our priority is to provide platforms that have the performance, reliability, and flexibility that customers need to develop compelling, differentiated products. Powering more than 50 million vehicles is a huge milestone, and we are honoured that, for almost 15 years, the world’s leading automakers and automotive tier one suppliers have put their trust in QNX.”
If you’re a fan of Tesla’s dashboard, which is powered by QNX, then you might be interested in the Maserati Quattroporte GTS that will be on display at CES 2015. QNX will be using the vehicle to show off its latest technology and infotainment capabilities. We’ll bring you hands-on details.
