Report: Millions of cars to have some connectivity by 2025

More than 100 million new automobiles likely will have some connectivity in 10 years, according to an Ernst & Young report. Insurers will need to develop strong relationships with auto manufacturers as they gain access to data, including information on braking patterns, acceleration and deceleration, and location, the report says. Insurers and telematics providers will use such data for underwriting, pricing and — eventually — claims.
