What is Connected Car?
A connected car is a vehicle whose navigation system generates geolocation data during its journey. There are over 15 million of them on UK roads today!
Generally these vehicles are quite young, with very few connected cars being older than 10 years. For example, any new Ford put on the road from 2012 onwards is equipped with an integrated navigation system, and therefore falls into the connected car category.
Connected vehicles represent the majority of UK cars on the road today. The representative sample of the connected vehicle data depends on the share of recent vehicles in the region and it is via this indicator that we adjust the data as needed.
