Opel is taking the next step towards a future with more in-vehicle information, optimum efficiency and safety in commercial vehicles– all while helping to save money.
Together with cooperation partner and telematics experts Masternaut, Opel will offer pre-installed telematics solutions in the Movano and Vivaro. This makes Opel the first automaker with this type of pre-installed overall system.
It provides fleet managers with operating data such as real-time vehicle location and fuel consumption. This information helps to increase efficiency and productivity, and thus improve commercial vehicle fleet utilization. The first Opel Vivaro or Movano equipped with this system can be ordered now in the United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. France will follow later this summer. Vehicles ordered with the solution will be managed via the Masternaut Connect platform.
In addition, customers profit from the seamless hardware integration ex-factory, as no additional servicing appointment for its installation is required. Furthermore, the hardware comes with the same two-year warranty as the vehicle.
The advantages of this move are cost efficiency, saving time and safe driving. Opel has ensured data protection and privacy by having an optional private button available with the Premium version, which when pressed, the vehicle’s current location is masked and transmission of data to headquarters is interrupted.
