Opel to phase out OnStar

Opel is to phase out use of the GM-owned connectivity system OnStar by 2020, at the same time introducing the PSA Group's connectivity under the brand name Opel Connect, writes Brian Byrne.

This is a further element of the assimilation of Opel into the PSA Peugeot-Citroen ethos, after the French group took over Opel last year.

Opel Connect will be introduced on Opel passenger cars and light commercial vehicles beginning in 2019, one of the first models to feature Opel Connect will be the next generation Corsa due next year.
