Volvo’s new car data boost

Gloucestershire Echo - - MOTORING NEWS -

VOLVO is boost­ing its in-car con­nec­tiv­ity by fit­ting a data SIM card as stan­dard to all its new mod­els.

The fea­ture is be­ing in­tro­duced on all Model Year 2020 cars im­me­di­ately and can be retro­fit­ted to any that have al­ready been de­liv­ered to cus­tomers.

The SIM card al­lows the driver and pas­sen­gers to be fully con­nected at all times with ac­cess to 100GB of data for up to one year, mak­ing this the long­est Voda­fone plan cur­rently of­fered by a car maker in the UK.

And the fa­cil­ity is avail­able for the first 12 months for no ex­tra cost on top of the car’s ini­tial pur­chase price.

Op­er­a­tion of the SIM card is in­de­pen­dent of any of the oc­cu­pants’ own Sim-equipped de­vices, so there is no im­pact on their per­sonal or busi­ness data us­age.
