Enterprise Holdings has announced a partnership with General Motors to increase the number of connected vehicles in its fleet by the end of 2019. Enterprise began piloting its connectivity platform with GM this year, with a goal of adding more than 100,000 connected Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles to the fleet during the next 12 months.

Enterprise Holdings says this initiative will streamline and enhance the experience for customers of the Enterprise Rent-A-Car, National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car brands. 

Connected vehicles will expedite the renting and returning of vehicles for customers at neighborhood and airport Enterprise, National and Alamo locations. For example, they can automate such tasks as checking fuel levels, vehicle condition and odometer readings. Onboard telemetry allows geofenced rental locations to automatically receive these readings when customers return their cars, making the return of the vehicle frictionless.

Such features as emergency services, crisis assistance, automatic crash response, and remote lock/unlock will also be included which are designed to add an additional level of convenience and safety.

When Enterprise completes the transition to connected vehicles, the company says it will own the largest fleet of connected vehicles in the world.
