The strategic partnership between the Hyundai Motor Group (HMG) and Vodafone Business has been extended to deliver advanced in-car connected streaming and infotainment services.
As part of the multi-year extension, the companies will provide new services to users in over 40 countries in Europe, with Vodafone Business bringing its Global Internet of Things (IoT) Connectivity for Connected Car Service to millions of Hyundai, Kia and Genesis vehicle models sold in the region. Vodafone Business’s IoT Connectivity will enable these drivers to benefit from fast and reliable access to audio and video streaming services, wi-fi hotspots and more. The expanded partnership is expected to enable HMG to provide an enhanced level of cross-border mobility.
“The driving experience as we know it will continue to change and we want to be at the forefront of that shift. Vodafone is a trusted partner for Hyundai Motor Group and has been instrumental in connecting drivers of our vehicles with real-time and relevant information at the wheel,” said Haeyoung Kwon, vice president, Infotainment Development Center at Hyundai Motor Group.
“Thanks to our continued partnership, we will be able to make our vision for the automotive world of the future a reality. We are looking forward to seeing this partnership evolve so we can realize the true mobility of Hyundai Motor Group.”
“In-vehicle connectivity is becoming universal,” added Erik Brenneis, director, IoT, Vodafone Business. “As a leader in IoT, Vodafone Business can offer unique and innovative solutions that drive the adoption of the technology. Vodafone and Hyundai have been shaping the future of vehicle mobility since 2018, and the extension of our partnership means we can enhance the experience of millions more customers across Europe.”
