Volkswagen and INRIX expand partnership to launch INRIX Park and INRIX Fuel in Europe
11 November 2014
INRIX, Inc., a leading global provider of traffic information, analytics and driver services for the connected car and smart cities worldwide, is expanding its partnership with Volkswagen to launch INRIX Park and INRIX Fuel services in new Passat models equipped with Discover Pro and Car-Net navigation in Europe.
This follows Volkswagen expanding INRIX real-time traffic information in Europe earlier this year. INRIX parking and fuel services will be available in other new Volkswagen models in Europe next year.
As a real-time connected service, INRIX Park goes beyond static parking Points-Of-Interest (POIs) to provide the current cost to park, real-time information on the number of available spaces and detailed location information for a continuously expanding and updated database of 55,000 off street parking locations in 41 countries in Europe.
INRIX Fuel provides location, real-time pricing and payment option information for more than 170,000 fuel stations (94% of total market) in 22 European countries. INRIX continuously monitors and updates these services as new parking and refueling locations come online.
Volkswagen will launch INRIX Park and INRIX Fuel in new Passat models from December 2014 that include the automaker’s top-of-the-range Discover Pro navigation system, with its 8-inch touchscreen color display and 3D map navigation with voice control, and Car-Net, its mobile online services platform. Volkswagen will launch INRIX Park and INRIX Fuel in other models using Discover Pro from next year.
