The victory of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), with the new Prime Minister, Narendra Modi at the helm, is being hailed by many as a new era for business in India. The government has promised to implement policies to improve infrastructure, including futuristic investments in ‘smart cities’, meaning that the future looks bright for telematics. The trail-blazers in the connected car sphere, Mahindra & Mahindra, have other automakers such as Tata Motors hot on their heels: it is speculated that the Indian automotive heavyweight will launch their ‘Drive Link Application’, in collaboration with Samsung, in their passenger vehicles by 2015. The rise of the connected vehicle brings with it a plethora of valued-added services, including remote vehicle diagnostics, onsite support and usage-based insurance.
