Nissan India today launched NissanConnect, an integrated information and communication platform that connects with the customer’s smartphone to provide enhanced driving experience. The company said that this technology is inspired by Nissan’s Intelligent Mobility vision of making driving more confident and efficient yet exciting.
Nissan Connect is aimed at transforming a car into a more responsive mobility solution, coupled with added security and convenience features. It is a factory-fitted connected car technology solution with an embedded telematics control unit paired with a dedicated inbuilt SIM for every car and a dedicated server.
This feature will be available on the Micra, Terrano and Sunny, being developed specifically for the Indian market and it also enables the customer to be connected to his or her family through the car. This platform agnostic feature will be available across the Nissan range of cars and offers over 50 connected car features which come with three years of free subscription and one year of Nissan warranty program calculated from the start of the activation. This technology has been developed by Renault Nissan Technology Business Centre India (RNTBCI).
Arun Malhotra, managing director of Nissan Motor India Pvt Ltd, said, “NissanConnect embodies the best of Nissan’s innovative spirit and is designed to enhance the overall driving experience for everyone. It enables better comfort, convenience, control and safety through technologies that bring people closer together. Inspired by the future, NissanConnect will benefit our customers today”.

We are privileged to be a part of this unprecedented journey. With NissanConnect, we aim to provide an effortless driving experience integrated with our customers' connected lifestyle while maintaining data security”.
