After reading @Jim 's comment on this forum that I can ask my car to control devices in my Google smart home, thought I'd give it a try. It worked! I was surprised as I'd tried it soon after getting the car, and it didn't work then. "OK Google, turn on the landscape lights" etc. If this functions like my phone, it will only work properly when the car is connected to my home's wifi LAN.

Actually I just tried it from my phone with wifi turned off (LTE only), and it worked fine, so maybe google home commands will work from the car while out and about too.

AFAIK this used to not work - I had to be on my home LAN to control my google home. Now no longer true. Oops.
