General Motors has announced that it will be expanding its OnStar service to vehicles sold in Mexico starting next year.
The integrated safety, security, and navigation services will be available on Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac vehicles sold in Mexico, marking it the fourth country where the service is available. United States, Canada, and China are the current ones supporting OnStar. The list of services that OnStar will offer in Mexico include: automatic crash response, 24/7 emergency services, stolen vehicle assistance, vehicle diagnostics, RemoteLink mobile app, turn-by-turn navigation, and remote door unlock.
GM hasn’t announced its pricing yet for the Mexico market, but currently there are six million OnStar subscribers and has been widely considered a valuable tool by its owners.
“OnStar’s expansion into Mexico will make OnStar the preeminent provider of automobile safety and security services in Latin America,” said Mary Chan, president of Global Connected Consumer. “This is an important step as we will continue to grow GM’s connected vehicle solutions in other regions of the world in the coming months and years.”
