Volkswagen and Microsoft expand cloud partnership

Volkswagen and Microsoft have announced they are deepening their partnership on cloud computing solutions to bring connectivity to Volkswagen vehicles across the globe.

The Volkswagen Automotive Cloud is set to be available in Europe, China and the US, not coincidentally also the core markets for the future full-electric, fully connected ID model family. The first ID cars are expected to be delivered in 2020.

Drivers of equipped cars will have access to parking and charging information as well as various media streaming services.
