Orange and Tesla roll out connected car services in France

Orange bsOrange Business Services has announced that it is to partner Tesla Motors in rolling out its ‘Connected Car’ service in France.

Orange Business Services, the enterprise division of Orange, will be providing wireless connectivity to Tesla’s Model S vehicles in this country.

Orange Business has already made forays into the connected car segment with the launch, in 2011, of its Smart Cities and Territories delivering connectivity services for a wider range of devices and ‘things’. The recent tie-up with Tesla marks Orange Business’ move to capitalize the demand for connectivity particularly relating to navigation and infotainment services.
