In Brazil, the company hired act digital to develop the mobility application (connected car) that allows the driver to access vehicle functions and services provided by the automaker.

The integration of features that can be managed by the app promotes a unique mobility experience for drivers and passengers. Through the application, it is possible to check and adjust the conditions of the car, remotely and simply. Lighting, air conditioning, energy consumption for electric cars, and GPS coordinates are some of the functions available.
