News : Vodafone Partners with Skoda for Connected Kodiaq SUV
London, UK, Sept 6, 2016 -- The new partnership will see Vodafone SIMs embedded in all Kodiaq models, allowing users to get information on servicing and location from their smartphone
Vodafone has partnered up with Skoda to provide in-car Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity in all Kodiaq models.
The SUV is expected to launch throughout the UK in early 2017. Each model will have Vodafone SIM installed allowing users to pair their Android or iOS smartphone with the Skoda Connect function.
This isn’t the first time Vodafone has worked with a motoring manufacturer. It announced a partnership with Volkswagen and Audi in March 2014 where models post-2015 had similar connectivity features. Both German car makers are owned by the same parent company as Skoda.
Vodafone director of IoT Erik Brenneis said "We’re delighted that Skoda, another major Volkswagen Group brand, has followed VW and Audi in partnering with Vodafone as its IoT communications provider."
