Several categories of car telematics applications are now offered on a commercial basis by most leading carmakers.

Examples include eCall and roadside assistance, stolen vehicle tracking (SVT), vehicle diagnostics, over-the-air updates, connected navigation and infotainment, Wi-Fi hotspots as well as concierge services and convenience applications. Convenience applications mainly rely on embedded telematics devices to enable remote control of vehicle functions such as door lock/unlock, vehicle preconditioning (heating or cooling of the passenger compartment before a trip) and finding the last parking position.

Several other applications also exist, for instance usage-based insurance, leasing and rental fleet management as well as electronic toll collection and road charging. However, these applications are in many cases offered by aftermarket service providers. Carmakers are also gradually exploring in-vehicle commerce platforms and data exchanges to offer telematics data to third-party service providers. During the past years, carmakers have supported third-party service providers with APIs enabling data access and SDKs for application development.

The connected car is a major trend in the automotive industry and virtually all of the world's leading carmakers have launched massmarket services in key regions.

The drivers behind the adoption of OEM telematics are both commercial and regulatory. Regulatory initiatives related to safety and security will have a decisive effect on the adoption of OEM telematics in Europe. The EU's eCall initiative and Russia's ERA-GLONASS have made an automatic emergency call device a mandatory safety feature in all new car models sold. In North America, commercial services have driven the adoption of OEM telematics services that have evolved from being a differentiator to a mainstream feature now offered by nearly all the leading car brands on a majority of their models.

The publisher estimates that more than 41 percent of all new cars sold worldwide in 2018 were equipped with an OEM embedded telematics system, up from 33 percent in 2017. North America is the most advanced market in terms of premium telematics services with an attach rate of 53 percent. The EU+EFTA region is picking up pace and had an attach rate of 60 percent. Other developed markets such as Japan and South Korea currently have attach rates of approximately 45 percent. China has emerged as an important market for telematics services with an attach rate of about 31 percent in 2018.

In other regions, the attach rate is below 15 percent. GM, BMW, MercedesBenz and PSA are the leading adopters of embedded telematics, widely offering the technology as a standard feature across models and geographies. GM has offered telematics services for more than two decades, offering the technology as an integral part of its value proposition in North America, Europe and China. BMW introduced its ConnectedDrive service in North America and Western Europe in 1997. Other major car brands offering embedded telematics on a broad scale include Hyundai, Volkswagen, FCA Group, Volvo Cars, Toyota/Lexus, Renault, JLR and Tesla.
