Life-style connectivity will stay portable for Citroën

Not every carmaker is eyeing up the potentially lucrative life-style aspects of the connected car with Citroën insisting it will focus mainly on safety and driver assistance aspects of the technology.

Speaking to TU-Automotive, Linda Jackson CEO of the French manufacturer, said she expected to keep the embedded elements distinctly separate from mobile devices carried into the vehicle.

Nonetheless, she accepted that connectivity will bring a younger generation into the car-buying marketplace as it seeks to maintain social connection even on the move.
