EV Manufacturer Selects Lear as Connectivity Service Provider

By Luke Bellos

An unnamed EV manufacturer selected Lear to provide 4G/5G connectivity and vehicle positioning solutions for new electric cars.

Developers at Lear will utilize the Global Navigation Satellite System (the company’s proprietary vehicle position technology) combined with Lear’s telecommunications unit to include cloud functionality, diagnostic support, and communications to support highly automated electric vehicles.

"Our global customers are seeking innovative solutions that provide market-leading safety and consumer experiences," said Carl Esposito, Lear Senior Vice President and President, E-Systems. "This award validates our unique value proposition of offering a telecommunications unit integrated with precise vehicle positioning solutions."

Electric vehicles have surged in popularity in recent years, especially as consumers search for more environmentally friendly modes of transportation. In addition to reducing carbon emissions, electric vehicles offer a higher degree of safety for drivers through AI-enhanced automation, smart sensors, and real time analytics. However, most of these capabilities become useless without consistent, reliable connectivity.

Lear’s vehicle position solutions offer a number of valuable features for EV automakers, including data optimization capabilities for reduced operational costs, predictive programming to mitigate lost connections, and global availability for maximum coverage.

"This program award is the result of Lear's unique value proposition – global expertise in connectivity, software, services, and high accuracy vehicle positioning," Esposito said. "We look forward to collaborating with our customer to deliver Lear's market leading connectivity technologies."
