Opel will expand its portfolio in Europe, as more and more rivals introduce revolutionary technology to help clients connect with the car. Being part of General Motors Group, the future Opel models will benefit from the introduction of OnStar technology, already present on Chevrolet cars in the US.
In the USA, Canada, Mexico and China around seven million customers already count on the OnStar, which includes Wi-Fi hotspot and numerous mobile and emergency services.
The system can offer assistance, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. An advisor will always be available. In addition, if the airbag deploys, Vauxhall/Opel OnStar will be activated automatically.
Information on and access to the car is also guaranteed. Vehicle data such as tyre pressure or oil life can be accessed via the OnStar smartphone app. Locking/unlocking can also be controlled via the app. And if the car is stolen, OnStar will ”work” closely with the police to locate the stolen vehicle.
Opel OnStar and Vauxhall OnStar services will be previewed at Geneva Motor Show in March.Source: Opel
