Mitsubishi Motors Releases Road Assist+ Smartphone App


Mitsubishi Motors has always been a company that pioneers in engineering and technological innovation. In keeping with this spirit, the automobile manufacturer has released a smartphone app that helps drivers enhance their driving and safety while they are on the road.

Road Assist+

The app is an upgrade to a pre-existing app from Mitsubishi which provides 24-hour emergency roadside assistance to drivers. Whether you need help with an engine breakdown or a flat tire, this app could easily get you to help within a considerably short duration.

Moreover, what makes the app so unique is that it is the first hardware-free telematics system that is able to gather intelligence related to driver behavior. The software then uses this data to provide drivers with useful feedback related to their driving habits. 

Mitsubishi has partnered with certain insurance companies that can use such valuable information in order to provide attractive discounts for drivers who are particularly careful and safe behind the wheel. So, in other words, Road Assist+ helps you save money for being careful and responsible on the road, apart from providing roadside assistance. 

To develop this app, Mitsubishi worked with LexisNexis Risk Solutions. Being a hardware-free telematics system, you are not required to install any kind of hardware in your vehicle to use this app. All you have to do is download the app to your phone, and you can then start using it without any hassle. With this app, Mitsubishi cars in Emmaus will definitely be much safer.

Awarded “Telematics OEM of the Year”

Mitsubishi Motors has been awarded the prestigious “Telematics OEM of the Year” award for the development of this app at TU-Automotive Detroit, which is the largest conference and exhibition on automotive technology in the world. 

  • Pavan Mathew, who is the Director of OEM Business Development at LexisNexis Risk Solutions, said that this app “simplifies the collection of car date and also makes great use of advanced data analytics. “It enables OEMs to leverage existing customer touchpoints to grow and expand their telematics programs by enhancing or developing new products and services that can help promote safer driving habits.”

On top of all this, Mitsubishi, through Mitsubishi Electric, is currently working on artificial intelligence for their future concepts, and we can only hope to see more innovation from the renowned company.
