Chevrolet Sells 1.4 Million Vehicles with 4G LTE Wi-Fi
Chevrolet’s big push to offer available Wi-Fi across its lineup has paid off in a big way. Today, the bowtie brand announced that it has sold more than 1.4 million vehicles with 4G LTE connectivity since June 2014. That’s more connected cars sold by Chevy than the entire rest of the automotive industry combined.
Of the nearly one-and-a-half million Chevrolet vehicles with built-in 4G LTE WiFi, over 500,000 have been Silverado, Silverado HD, and Colorado pickups. The popularity of the American automaker’s internet-ready trucks has inspired the brand’s new “Mobile Office” commercial, which will air on New Year’s Eve.

Chevrolet also released a series of infographics (below) highlighting its industry-leading success. The only automaker to offer 4G LTE connectivity across its full-range of retail cars, Chevrolet has gained valuable insights into how drivers use built-in Wi-Fi. For example, Chevy owners have consumed over 1.4 million GB of data since June of last year, which is equivalent to 1.5 million hours of streaming HD video.

This year, Chevrolet also logged an average of 5 million interactions with the OnStar RemoteLink app every month, discovering that Volt drivers were the most likely to use the app. And approximately two million times each month, Chevy owners use OnStar to ask for directions, while making an average of 3,000 Good Samaritan calls through the app.
Chevy is continuing to lead the automotive industry in connectivity, and for the 2016 model year will offer both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility across the widest range of models.
