The SoundHound Chat AI voice assistant with integrated ChatGPT is live and in production in Peugeot, Opel, and Vauxhall vehicle brands across 11 European markets including Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom.

By the end of July, the rollout of ChatGPT in vehicles will be extended to 17 markets in 12 different languages. 

Back in March, Stellantis DS Automobiles was the first automaker in the world to go into full production with a voice assistant that integrates the latest generative AI technology via its SoundHound Chat AI software.

The assistant launched with DS across 18 countries and in 13 languages. Now Stellantis is extending live production to include Peugeot, Opel, and Vauxhall vehicles – revolutionizing the cockpit experience with interactive knowledge discovery, real-time data, and effortless in-vehicle controls. 

SoundHound’s data shows a sixfold increase in usage – with a 50% rise in interaction frequency already reported by DS Automobiles – as well as a 5x decrease in unfulfilled requests, and a 5x increase in the consumer loyalty-based Net Promoter Score, indicating a growing demand for sophisticated, AI-powered voice assistants among drivers and manufacturers. 

Access to the technology will be included in vehicles from these brands beginning July 2024. For certain previously released models, SoundHound Chat AI with integrated ChatGPT will be available on-demand and can be delivered over-the-air with no need to visit a dealer.

SoundHound Chat AIallows hands-free voice control for a wide range of functions including navigation, making calls, or accessing real-time information such as sports scores and weather updates. The integration of ChatGPT into the natural voice recognition system allows users to ask about any topic—from historical facts to creating stories for children.

Users can ask detailed questions and continue the conversation, seamlessly interacting with external knowledge sources and in-vehicle controls interchangeably for route information and historic attractions along the way.

“Our collaboration with Stellantis has put both companies right at the cutting edge of innovation in the automotive sector, bringing the driver experience into a new and exciting era,” said Michael Zagorsek, COO of SoundHound AI. “SoundHound is proud to deliver voice AI technology that meets the market’s demand for a next generation consumer experience built on natural conversation.”
