MG Motor India has partnered with Cisco internet of things (IoT) and UNLIMIT to develop connected mobility enabled vehicles.

MG Motor India has also released a detailed white-paper on ‘Connected Mobility - Growing Possibilities in India’ in association with management consulting firm Arthur D. Little. According to the report, the value of the connected mobility market could eb worth $3 billion by 2020 in India.  At present, only 2% of cars in India are considered connected cars. The demand for connected car services is expected to grow exponentially in India and mirror the global growth trends. Globally, the size of the connected mobility market is projected to grow from $44 billion in 2015 to $175 billion by 2020.

Commenting on the development, Rajeev Chaba, president & managing director (MD), MG Motor India, said, “With the automobile industry going through a major transformation, MG India aims to take the lead in connected mobility and establish the connected vehicle ecosystem in India. The partnership with both tech giants involves incorporating tracking, security and navigation amongst many other features in our vehicles, with an aim to offer a differentiated customer experience in India.”

Meanwhile, Alok Srivastava, regional MD, South East Asia, Cisco IoT, said, “Cars of the future would not be seen just as a product but a platform, through which various services can be offered. A vehicle that is constantly connected offers a myriad of opportunities. It gives us great pleasure to associate with an iconic name such as MG Motor to accelerate the Connected Automobile revolution collectively.”

“The consumer demand for connected mobility enabled vehicles in India has strong potential and is expected to mirror global growth trends, thereby also opening vast avenues for start-ups to develop domain specific applications and services that will enhance customer experience,” said Juergen Hase, chief executive officer, UNLIMIT.
