Maruti Suzuki has launched its new telematics solution system 'Suzuki Connect' for its Nexa branded cars at Rs 9999. The solution is an advanced integrated safety and connected car solution offering benefits like vehicle tracking, emergency alerts, live vehicle status, driving behaviour analysis and preventive maintenance calls.
Talking about the newly introduced 'Suzuki Connect' telematics solution, R S Kalsi, Senior Executive Director, Marketing and Sales, Maruti Suzuki India said, "Suzuki Connect is an advanced telematics solution developed and tested in India to offer seamless connected car experience to car owners. A nationwide extensive study was conducted to understand the challenge that Indian car owners face daily and their expectations from these solutions. Indian connected cars will be 2.6 per cent of the total car park by 2020. This is a conservative estimate. We are confident the features we offering to customers - they will love it. And it was crucial to benchmark needs of Indian customer against globally connected car users. Global telematics, currently sized at $55 billion, is growing at a CAGR of 18 per cent and will touch $103 billion in the next few years. India’s telematics industry on the other hand is in a very nascent stage and there is an opportunity for growth. By 2020, it is anticipated that 2.6 per cent of total cars will be connected cars.”
