The driver of these vehicles will also be able to log onto their favourite social media sites, such as Facebook and Twitter, gain up to date conditions on traffic, along with service maintenance requirements. Qoros have also claimed that this technology will be including a number of markets first and that it will be bringing a brand new perspective to thew way that motorists interact with their vehicles. One of the aspects of the technology is to inform drivers of available parking spaces nearby, which is through the user's smartphone and data connection.
