Kirkland, WA – November 10, 2016 – INRIX, Inc., the world leader in connected car services and transportation analytics, today announced that its Off-Street Parking and Fuel services will be soon available in the all-new Porsche Panamera vehicles in Europe and North America. Drivers will be able to easily find, compare and navigate to available off-street parking spaces, as well as search for and drive to the lowest fuel prices nearby.
“Dynamic services are no longer just a selling point but a requirement. As a matter of fact, 81 percent of drivers currently use or are considering using in-car connectivity for information,” said Andreas Hecht, executive vice president and general manager of automotive at INRIX. “Real-time information, like traffic, parking and fuel, plays a critical role in the entire driving experience.”
Joining other luxury automakers that have recently incorporated INRIX’s parking services, Porsche will now allow drivers to access dynamic off-street parking information, including routes to the closest garage locations, detailed rates, amenities, restrictions and real-time occupancy. INRIX Parking offers access to the world’s most comprehensive and accurate parking database that includes more than 29 million spaces in over 90,000 locations spanning 4,000 cities in 65 countries. In fact, SBD, a global automotive technology research firm, recently concluded that INRIX was the “clear winner” in an independent off-street parking study that looked at key parking attributes in Germany and the U.S.
INRIX Fuel allows drivers to search for nearby stations and view dynamic pricing to find their preferred fuel at the lowest price. The service provides location, brand and real-time pricing information for more than 277,000 fuel stations in Europe and North America. INRIX Fuel is continually monitored and regularly updated as new fueling locations come online.
The Porsche Panamera also includes a real-time traffic service, powered by INRIX, for up-to-the-minute and predictive traffic flow information for routes, travel times, and alerts to crashes and incidents on over five million miles of roads. INRIX Traffic incorporates information from its network of more than 300 million connected vehicles and devices in over 40 countries.
INRIX’s driver services can be found in more than half of the connected cars on the road today, and is the preferred supplier to leading automakers, transportation agencies and drivers around the world. Global Connected Vehicles Survey, Accenture, 2015
