SiriusXM is doubling down on the connected car thanks to developments by Automatic Labs, a SiriusXM company, delivering a combination of connected vehicle services for a net cost as low as $40/vehicle (including device and introductory 6-month subscription). Through the Connected Maintenance feature, dealers will be able to send service reminders and maintenance info, vehicle-specific recall notifications, and more, directly to a customer’s smartphone. Using the Automatic mobile app, customers will be able to book service appointments and receive estimates from the dealership where their car was purchased. Automatic will also be launching a new hardware device available for distribution this summer. Boasting a sleek, low-profile design, the new 4G device will have best-in-class functionality, enabling a host of new features only available through Automatic.
“We are excited to be entering into this new phase of development for Automatic. Our new series of products offer cutting-edge safety and convenience services that consumers are asking for, and drives key first and future service traffic right back to a dealer’s store,” said Stewart Lyons, SVP Emerging Business, SiriusXM. “SiriusXM has a long and successful record of working with automotive dealers. As we continue to enhance our connected vehicle services and products, we’ll deliver even more value to them and their customers.”
