GM to Offer Internet Service in 1 Million Autos in 2000
Posted: 12-Jan-2000 [Source: Bloomberg]

[The worlds largest automaker is seeking content provider partnerships as it prepares to deliver factory installed wireless internet in 1 million vehicles this year.]

Detroit -- "General Motors Corp., the world's largest automaker, said it will offer factory-installed cellular telephone service with Internet access in 1 million cars and light trucks this year to boost revenue.

"GM seeks partners to deliver telecommunications services and content such as entertainment and customized traffic reports, Chairman Jack Smith said in an interview. GM could announce a partnership with a large telecommunications company in a few weeks that would let the automaker keep a portion of the monthly service fees, said Mark Hogan, head of GM's Internet unit.

"The company views cellular phones and its satellite-based OnStar driver communication systems as key to generating revenue after a car is driven off the dealer lot, a goal other automakers are pursuing. Ford Motor Co., the world's second-largest automaker, plans to make Internet access standard on some Lincoln cars starting in the 2001 model year. ``It can certainly be big if they do a good job on the service side and the pricing,'' said Lehman Brothers analyst Nicholas Lobaccaro.
