General Motors (GM) has launched OnStar, an in-vehicle safety and security technology, to provide leading safety solutions to its customers in the UAE
OnStar offers the widest range of safety and security services to drivers and enables the underlying connectivity in the vehicle brands allowing a suite of connected services focused on convenience and innovation. The subscription-based service also features an in-vehicle Wi-Fi plan offering - a first for the region, and will be available on most 2021 Chevrolet, GMC and Cadillac models.
“Launching OnStar in the UAE is a milestone on our journey towards a future of Zero Crashes, Zero Emissions and Zero Congestion. We have just celebrated the UAE’s Golden Jubilee and as we look forward to the next 50 years, we envision a fully-connected future which begins with the launch of OnStar,” said Gary West, managing director OnStar and Future Mobility at General Motors Africa and Middle East. “
OnStar is a service unlike any other, offering our customers unparalleled levels of safety and security, backed by a human touch. We recognise the visionary leadership in the UAE, which is working to build the smarter cities of tomorrow, and we are proud to work closely with our government partners to achieve our joint vision of safer roads, supported by OnStar.”
Each of the available OnStar and Connected Services plans is priced at (approx) US$27 per month. Customers who want the full OnStar offering, combining both Protect and Connect features, can opt for a bundle plan priced at (approx) US$40.
