Geely has announced they will become the first Chinese automaker to offer a model with Apple CarPlay compatibility.

Set to debut on the company's upcoming compact crossover, the system will provide iPhone owners with an iOS-style infotainment interface that provides easy access their messages, music and contacts.

Geely didn't have much else to say about the crossover but they confirmed it will be unveiled later this year before going on sale in China in early 2016.

In a statement, Geely Auto founder Li Shufu said “From today onwards, Geely Auto will move to further integrate internet and autonomous driving technologies as a means to bring our safety technologies to a world leading level.”
