Rüsselsheim. Opel OnStar, the personal connectivity and service assistant is coming. In Germany, the peace of mind offered by OnStar can be ordered for all new models ranging from ADAM to Insignia from mid-June. Opel passenger cars will then offer a range of new services and functions that subscribers will be able to use free of charge for the first 12 months. “The Opel brand will set new standards in connectivity and personal services with OnStar. Opel is redefining luxury because from now on, every Opel driver will have his personal assistant available at the touch of a button. Wi-Fi will be available as well,” said Opel CMO Tina Müller.
Eight easy-to-understand animated films now show exactly how all of these features work; a ninth called ‘Opel OnStar Registration’ will follow at the end of the month. Each light-hearted clip deals with a specific OnStar service and sums it up neatly. The videos will initially be available in German and English on YouTube and the Opel websites. French, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Polish and Portuguese versions will follow shortly. Furthermore, the videos will be used during a dealer training so that no questions will be left unanswered when the order books open.
With the launch of OnStar, Opel is taking the next decisive step towards connected cars. OnStar is already setting standards in the automobile industry in connected safety and security solutions, value-added mobility services and advanced information technology. Opel will make the service available in 13 European countries from this summer, those being: Belgium, Germany, France, the UK, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Austria, Poland, Portugal, Switzerland and Spain. Additional countries will follow at a later stage. Customers will be able to use the entire service portfolio provided by Opel OnStar as well as the Wi-Fi hotspot free of charge for the first 12 months after registration. Today, OnStar already connects more than seven million customers in the U.S.A., Canada, China and Mexico and offers features such as 4G LTE connection, emergency services and smartphone remote control.
