Nokia today announced that its Location & Commerce unit will be providing the location content used by Exagon Motors to demonstrate a range of features and applications powered by NAVTEQ® Map data on and around the impressive electric Exagon Motors™ Furtive-eGT at the Geneva Motor Show (Nokia stand PAV1 in the Green Pavilion). The developments on show reflect the early results of an on-going collaboration with Exagon to explore how ADAS and connected navigation can improve the comfort, safety and efficiency of EVs.

The Furtive-eGT represents a new approach to Grand Touring, marrying a sports car with high-end customization. The impressive car offers clean, green electric power without compromising on the high expectations of Exagon drivers. One of the EV’s major challenges has been battery range anxiety. . Linked to the NAVTEQ® Map, this specialist content enables applications to optimise the car’s battery range by identifying the locations of charging stations and taking into consideration factors such as driving speed, acceleration and the power consumed by on-board equipment (air conditioning, radio, etc). Gathered from diverse sources, real- time information on availability, compatibility with the vehicle, opening hours and payment methods of individual charging stations can be delivered directly to the car showing how battery range management can minimise driver concerns.

“By integrating the capabilities and functions enabled by the NAVTEQ Map into our unique Furtive-eGT, we believe we can offer the best possible driving experience – an exclusive combination of sport driving, luxury customisation and location intelligence.” commented Luc Marchetti, founder and chairman of Exagon MotorsTM. “The Geneva Motor Show is an ideal opportunity to showcase some of the amazing developments we are driving forward for EVs."

An accurate digital map, combined with GPS positioning, can read the road ahead and, in addition to supporting EV charging station applications, also holds the key to a range of existing and potential ADAS systems. Key attributes such as height, slope, curvature, lane counts and markings, stop signs and special speed conditions are critical to applications such Predictive Cruise Control, Adaptive Front Lights, and Curve Speed Control. NAVTEQ Map data, featuring the precision and content required for ADAS applications, leads the field.

“Being eco-friendly and enjoying the pleasure of driving do not contradict each other, if you are doing it in a smart way,” commented Bruno Bourguet, Sales Vice President, Nokia, Location & Commerce. “Today's announcement is an example of the on-going successful collaboration with Exagon Motors™ which has already materialized in other areas such as safety systems and connected services.”
