FCA takes its forward-thinking global telematics program to the next level with the integration of IDEMIA’s eSIM (DAKOTA) and Subscription Manager platform (Smart Connect). These groundbreaking services, already operational, are enabling each day FCA to optimize vehicle operations. 

The DAKOTA eSIM will be embedded directly into new FCA vehicle models that will be launched in multiple regions. Combined with Smart Connect, this solution gives the automaker the flexibility to dynamically choose the best connectivity provider throughout the lifetime of the vehicle on a worldwide scale. 

IDEMIA’s solutions not only pave the way for in-demand services such as emergency calls, predictive maintenance and insurance-related services, but also simplify the manufacturing process and provide the capability to remotely update software and tailor connectivity packages to local regulations and requirements.
As connected cars are expected to account for more than 90% of overall vehicle sales by 2024 and the value of in-car connected services is set to jump 28% between 2017 and 2030, the market is primed for DAKOTA and Smart Connect.
