FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Nov. 15, 2016 – #hyundai becomes the first mainstream automaker to connect cars with homes using Amazon Echo and its new Blue Link® skill for Amazon Alexa. Starting today, #hyundai owners have the convenience of locking, unlocking and remote starting their vehicles from the comfort of their couch, kitchen or bedroom using voice commands. The new Blue Link skill for Amazon Alexa is available across Alexa-enabled devices and #hyundai vehicles equipped with the second generation of Blue Link.

"Our customers increasingly want more ways to interact with their vehicles, especially when they are hustling to get out the door," said #barryratzlaff, Executive Director, digital business planning and connected operations, #hyundai Motor America. "Linking smart devices like the Amazon Echo and Apple Watch to vehicles via Blue Link continues to fill that desire. Allowing consumers to send commands to their car is just the beginning."

Adding even more convenience to the ownership experience, owners of the all-newHyundai IONIQ Electric and Plug-in Electric vehicles are able to start and stop the charge of their cars with the ease of simple voice commands with the Blue Link skill. #hyundai owners can request various functions of their car including:

  • Remote engine start with climate control across all supported #hyundai models
  • Remote door lock/unlock across all #hyundai models
  • Remote horn/lights across all #hyundai models equipped

Blue Link brings seamless connectivity directly into the car with technology like Remote Start with Climate Control, Destination Search powered by Google®, Remote Door Lock/Unlock, Car Finder, Enhanced Roadside Assistance, and Stolen Vehicle Recovery. Blue Link can be easily accessed from the buttons on the rearview mirror, the web, or via smartphone app. In addition to the new Blue Link skill, some of these features can be controlled via the latest Android Wear™ and Apple Watch™ smartwatch offerings.

"We're excited to work with #hyundai to expand their Blue Link skill for Amazon Alexa to more cars with Blue Link," said #robpulciani, Director, Amazon Alexa. "Being able to complete simple tasks like locking your car doors, set your car temperature, and more—all with just using your voice from inside the comfort of your home—is a magical experience. We can't wait for Alexa and Blue Link customers to try out this new skill."
