Uconnect Market is the name of FCA’s new in-vehicle commerce platform that gives U.S customers the opportunity to order food, save money on fuel purchases and make dinner reservations via a touchscreen.
The platform was developed in partnership with Seattle-based Xevo, which was recently acquired by Lear Corporation. It will deploy in the second half of 2019 via an over-the-air (OTA) update for certain models.
The line-up of brands participating in the Uconnect Market platform at launch includes Shell, Domino’s, Park Whiz and Yelp Reservations.
Alan D’Agostini, Global Head of Connected Services, FCA, says: “Our customers live busy lives, and our goal with the Uconnect platform is to provide an advanced portfolio of services to make their daily drive more convenient, productive and enjoyable.”
He adds: “This is why we are launching Uconnect Market, as we continue to ramp-up our connectivity efforts around the world with the goal of having all new FCA vehicles connected by 2022.”
Launched in 2003, Uconnect is the connected vehicle platform that is built into Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram and FIAT vehicles
