Stellantis vehicle-embedded telematics offers ‘better quality’ data

Data from vehicle-embedded telematics, rather than aftermarket solutions, is more specific, more granular and more accurate, according to Mobilisights. 

The Stellantis-owned data company, which was launched at the start of last year to leverage exclusive access to embedded data across the manufacturer’s 14 brands, says it also avoids unnecessary downtime for fleets.

Speaking to Fleet News while on a visit to the UK, Sanjiv Ghate, Mobilisights CEO, said the business had come a long way since its launch.

“Fleet has been our first area of focus,” he explained. “This is where we feel that the market is most ready to work with the telematic data and the need has been fairly pronounced for a while.

“People have settled for dongles or aftermarket solutions as a substitute for native data. That’s one of the things we would like to see changed because we believe that we have a better quality data with low friction, cloud to cloud, as opposed to dealing with all the physical installation and removal, and people tampering with the vans.”  

Mobilisights recently announced that a fleet management data pack service will be included in all model year 2024 light commercial vehicles (LCVs) from Stellantis Pro One (Citroën, Fiat Professional, Opel, Peugeot, and Vauxhall), providing what it described as unmatched connected vehicle data services.

New vans will be offered to leasing, rental and fleet operators with up to four years of the embedded data services through a subscription model, already included in the vehicle price.

Mobilisights says it offers a compelling value proposition for fleet management with unique access to the near real-time connected vehicle data of Stellantis-branded OEMs through its API.

Ghate said: “Working together with Stellantis Pro One, we are helping enhance efficiency, safety, and sustainability of commercial fleets including those with electric vehicles, further reinforcing Stellantis Pro One’s dedication to connected services for business customers.”
