Any tech-obsessed Android user will know that unless you're using Google's own Pixel devices, updates to the operating system are often months late – and you'll be lucky to see any at all after a few years, with most brands preferring you upgrade to a new device instead.

Volvo – or rather its electric offshoot Polestar – is adamant, however, that its new Android-based infotainment system will "stay as cutting-edge in the future as it is today".

Android Automotive OS debuts in the Polestar 2 as the first vehicle in the world to feature the new platform – and buyers ought to know that despite the confusingly similar name, Android Automotive is a different beast to the phone-based Android Auto interface.

Instead of simply mirroring its features from your Android phone, Android Automotive is the vehicle's native infotainment system, loaded directly into the car's hardware as a standalone Android device in its own right.
