Hyundai’s longtime partner, SiriusXM, acquires connected vehicle unit to offer more infotainment for Hyundai vehicles.
Hyundai’s response to the acquisition:
“SiriusXM is a long-time, valued partner of Hyundai Motor America and we’ve worked with them to provide satellite radio on every vehicle in our lineup since 2008. Hyundai customers have benefited from innovative services such as real-time traffic, sports, weather and stock prices delivered by SiriusXM. Their acquisition of the connected vehicle services business of Agero will offer consumers one consistent interface for Hyundai’s industry-leading infotainment technologies. Our multichannel commitment to vehicle connectivity also includes Hyundai Blue Link, our telematics system that powers Assurance Connected Care. Now falling under one management umbrella, it ensures Hyundai consumers have access to the best and easiest-to-use technology available. This acquisition will continue to help us maintain our leadership position in connected car solutions and delight our customers who are seeking seamless technology integration in their vehicles.”
- Mike O’Brien, vice president, Corporate and Product Planning
