Opel/Vauxhall is launching new OnStar services this month, and it’s already earned the distinction as an award-winner. Opel OnStar/Vauxhall OnStar earned the award in the innovation category in the annual BusinessCar Techies Awards.

“It’s the level and variety of offering wrapped up with OnStar, as well as its accessibility, that really won over the BusinessCar Techie Awards judging panel,” said BusinessCar Editor Paul Barker. “There are duty of care, convenience and organizational benefits all wrapped up in a proven package, and it’s a development that genuinely moves the industry forward.”

Opel and Vauxhall’s OnStar service is not dissimilar from the offerings enjoyed by more than seven million customers in North America, China, and Mexico. OnStar allows drivers to connect with a personal assistant for 24/7 consultation and emergency response, complimentary vehicle diagnostics for 60 months, and the highly-touted 4G LTE with built-in Wi-Fi hotspot.

Opel OnStar is the center piece of the brand’s newest vehicle, the next-generation Astra, which will make its world premiere September 17-27 at the Frankfurt Auto Show.
