A connected vehicle is one that has a dedicated wireless wide area connection that interfaces with its sensors, software or other data. In short, connected vehicles have the ability to interact with devices, located inside or outside it.

Though the earlier models used network connectivity through aftermarket devices, most of the newer vehicles come with inbuilt ones.

According to IDC, the number of connected vehicles will rise over 45% this year to 51.1 million units. By recording an estimated compound annual growth rate of 16.8%, connected vehicles shipments are forecast to touch as much as 76.3 million units by 2023.

These include higher customer demand for a more immersive vehicle experience, progressive government regulations, higher investments into connected services and automakers’ ability to better utilize them for revenue generation.
