GM Admits That There Is No Technical Reason Why CarPlay Can't Be Included in Future EVs

General Motors announced earlier this year that it intends to stop providing support for CarPlay and Android Auto in all of its electric vehicles.

The company gave the reason for this decision as the necessity for closer integration with the vehicle as it prepares to roll out a new infotainment system that was created in collaboration with Google.

With this week's high-profile unveiling of the $130,000-plus Cadillac Escalade IQ that will launch in late 2024, General Motors (GM) followed through on its promise.

The automaker confirmed to The Verge yesterday that the luxury electric SUV's massive 55-inch dashboard display will not support CarPlay or Android Auto in any location. The Cadillac Escalade IQ will launch in late 2024.

However, the decision to stop supporting CarPlay and Android Auto was more motivated by political considerations than by technical considerations, as shown in the video presentation of the new Escalade IQ.

Golson discussed the omission with representatives from GM, and they said that the choice was made because of EV-specific functions, such as using information about the vehicle's charge condition to assist with GPS routing.

Golson was surprised to learn this information. When the user is making use of CarPlay or Android Auto, the phone does not have any awareness of the charge condition of the vehicle.
