AITO M5 EV HarmonyOS 3

A recent report from a Chinese researcher shows that Tesla has won the race of OTA rollout in the smart car industry, on the other hand, Huawei led AITO to enter the top players to take care of the new OTA update to improve the smart car user experience.

According to the information, EV maker Tesla is far ahead in terms of pushing new OTA updates. The data reveals that Tesla has released 11 software updates in the past year.

July 2022 is the only month that the company left not to upgrade its EVs. However, the entire 11 months were packed with new software releases. On this subject, BYD’s performance is average with a push of 4 software updates.

However, AITO comes in the top trends with the 7 OTA software rollout, which is way better than the competitors and other top car makers.

In terms of OTA upgrades, the smart cockpit has always been the focus of the smart car industry. The screen UI interaction/application and voice control are the most concentrated sections of the infotainment system.
