The Car Connectivity Consortium (CCC), today announced that the new Volkswagen Lamando shipping in China is MirrorLink-enabled. Lamando is a four door coupe similar in size to a Jetta.
“MirrorLink is a natural fit for Volkswagen’s commitment to supporting a new age of mobility,” said Soenke Detlefsen, Head of Electric/Electronic Development from Volkswagen China. “Now that mass-market MirrorLink-enabled handsets are available to consumers, Volkswagen is thrilled to deliver vehicles to support them right off the assembly line.”
Volkswagen entered the Chinese market at the end of the seventies, and is today the market leader in China. In 2014, together with its two joint ventures — Shanghai Volkswagen and FAW-Volkswagen, Volkswagen Group China delivered 3.68 million vehicles to customers in the Chinese mainland and Hong Kong, achieving a 20.5% share of China’s passenger vehicle market.
