The news follows January's Consumer Electronics Show demonstration of the Android operating system customised for a Tesla, and, last year, for the Maserati Ghibli.

The 2016 Honda Accord update has been revealed at a Silicon Valley event this week, debuting with lightly refreshed styling, new safety features and an upgraded infotainment suite.
