Stellantis’ Peugeot brand has announced plans to integrate ChatGPT into its vehicles to enhance the voice assistant experience, joining other automakers like Volkswagen and Mercedes-Benz in leveraging the popular AI chatbot.

Jerome Micheron, director of Peugeot’s Product Plan, disclosed during a media call that ChatGPT will be integrated into all Peugeot cars, including the new e-3008 model, as well as small commercial vehicles.

Peugeot is set to launch a pilot version of the ChatGPT service, capable of connecting to vehicle controls and providing responses to general or navigation-related queries. The pilot will commence on Wednesday across five countries – France, Britain, Germany, Italy, and Spain, with plans to make the service standard equipment later this year.

Mercedes-Benz initiated a trial in the United States last year, enabling drivers to utilise ChatGPT for more natural responses and assistance with inquiries ranging from destination details to dinner suggestions.

Similarly, Volkswagen announced earlier this month its intention to integrate ChatGPT into its voice assistant by mid-year, facilitating interactive dialogue with drivers.

In addition to ChatGPT integration, Peugeot revealed plans to introduce an extended eight-year warranty for the e-3008 model, a significant increase from the current two-year warranty on its cars. This move aims to incentivise more drivers to transition to electric vehicles.
