With the smart device integrated access solution CoSmA, which will be available to buyers of a Honda e, the technology company Continental demonstrates, what digitalization in the automotive industry looks like. In addition to the car key, buyers of a new Honda e will receive a virtual key onto their smartphone. Using the My Honda+ App, they can unlock the vehicle remotely via Bluetooth Low Energy. The new Honda e will be available from 2020 onwards in Europe. Visitors of the Frankfurt Motor Show will be able to see the vehicle at the Honda booth in Hall 8.

Mr Shigeo Hamada, project leader of Pan European Connectivity Business & General Manager of Automobile Division Honda Motor Europe Ltd said that “We are very excited about the launch of Honda e, our all-new electric vehicle. The Honda e delivers new level of connectivity, and the digital key function will provide our customers with exceptional convenience and new features.”

With Continental’s solution, vehicle owners will receive a number of virtual keys simultaneously and will thus be able to share their vehicle for example with family and friends conveniently by just sending the virtual key to other drivers. Mr Johann Hiebl, head of the Continental business units Body & Security and Infotainment & Connectivity said that “The integration of our CoSmA solution in the new Honda e marks an important milestone in the era of the connected vehicle and the digitalization of the automotive industry. Not only do we enable a complete digital user experience for Honda e owners, this is also the first time Continental’s CoSmA goes into series production directly with a vehicle manufacturer.”
