PEUGEOT e-LEGEND CONCEPT Car — Powered by Houndify
SoundHound Inc.’s Houndify platform powers the voice AI assistant in the new PEUGEOT e-LEGEND CONCEPT Car
We’re pleased to announce our partnership with Groupe PSA, one of the largest car manufacturers in Europe, to develop a cloud-based and embedded conversational voice interface powered by our Houndify™ voice AI platform for use in cars across the Groupe PSA portfolio. These include Peugeot, Citroën, DS, Opel, and Vauxhall models, available in European markets starting in 2020.
With the Houndify integration, drivers will be able to perform a variety of tasks simply by speaking naturally, such as: finding nearby restaurants and businesses, adjusting temperature and air conditioning, launching connected services, and more. Language roll-out plans are being developed to make available globally.
We’re proud to be working with Groupe PSA to create the best conversational experience, to provide users with a progressively more seamless, efficient interface. Groupe PSA’s mission to simplify life on board for vehicle users and contribute to greater safety is one that we are thrilled to support.

Voice assistants are increasingly the preferred method for users to search, ask questions, and complete tasks efficiently, quickly, conveniently, and hands-free. In 2020 alone, 45% of internet users searched via voice, according to We Are Social. Even before voice assistants became ubiquitous, the auto industry recognized voice AI as a way to deliver safer, smarter, more natural, and — most importantly — hands-free in-car experiences.
In-car voice assistants have become more than just a way to pull up music and navigation, hands-free. They are becoming the standard for exceptional driving experiences by offering functionalities that are defining the future of the auto industry. As car manufacturers seek to differentiate themselves in a market increasingly saturated with the latest technological advancements, they’ll need to distinguish themselves with voice AI that surpasses user expectations and needs.
