At this year’s Geneva Motor Show Vauxhall unveiled their new version of their driver assistance system.
Glasgow, South Lanarkshire -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/25/2015 -- The new system is a comprehensive package that includes emergency response notification, an anti-theft system as well as a new mobile network service. Vauxhall is already leading the field in this area of car technology and there is evidence that these new in car systems are helping to boost sales.
Currently, around 7 million people use their in car systems. The system is in use in the North American markets of Canada, the US and Mexico as well as China. Vauxhall plan to make their latest version – Vauxhall OnStar more widely available than the current systems. It will be available first in the UK with the support team being based in Luton. At the push of a button, drivers will be able to summon assistance from that support centre in the case of a breakdown or accident.
Whilst consumers appreciate the practical aspects of the system, the main selling point in North America and China is the ability to provide Wi-Fi connectivity for up to sevendevices. In car entertainment has been a big selling point for decades, and continues to be an important part of the purchasing decision, today.
As well as unveiling the new system, Vauxhall launched their new city car at the show. The new car is called the Viva, a name that Vauxhall used for one of their models between 1963 and 1979.
The new vehicle will be available in the spring of 2015. It will retail at £7,000, which makes it a highly affordable car. It is anticipated that many of Vauxhall's existing customers will trade in their current compacts for the new model releasing thousands of much needed used cars into the car market. This means that buying a used Vauxhall in Glasgow and the rest of the UK will become easier as more used Vauxhalls flood onto the market.
Currently, there is a shortage of used cars. During the latter part of 2014, demand for used cars in the UK started to increase, which has left used car dealers struggling to re-stock. In the spring, several manufacturers are releasing new models, at which point new stock will once again become easier to secure for used car dealers.
