Mitsubishi Motors North America has been recognized at TU-Automotive Detroit as “Telematics OEM of the Year,” the second consecutive year the company won the award.
The Mitsubishi Road Assist+ app was recognized at the award ceremony for using telematics technology to provide feedback to drivers to improve their driving and prevent risky behaviors such as like hard braking, fast acceleration and speeding.
“We're extremely honored to be recognized as OEM of the year by TU-Automotive for Road Assist+ and our work in the telematics space,” said Bryan Arnett, senior manager for product planning at Mitsubishi. “Today's drivers increasingly expect intelligent services that link to their car to provide a convenient and connected driving experience. Mitsubishi Road Assist+ is a seamless way to offer that while providing cost-savings opportunities for consumers through participating UBI insurance carriers.”
Mitsubishi Road Assist+ was made possible in collaboration with LexisNexis Risk Solutions.
“Providing insurers and OEMs with comprehensive and normalized telematics data is one of our connected car team's top priorities,” said Adam Hudson, senior director for the U.S. connected car team at LexisNexis Risk Solutions. “This recognition is a great source of pride, and further showcases us as an emerging leader in the telematics industry.”
