Digitization is emerging as a key differentiator for business transformation and connected vehicle technology is one such manifestation. Developed by Mahindra, DiGiSENSE is the first of its kind technology platform which is multi-application and multi-product enabled. This unique technology connects the owner to his vehicle and enables him to control its usage and prevent misuse.

Drivers can contact emergency breakdown services or pull up a route planner at the touch of a button, fleet owners and dealers can track the location of their vehicles in real time, while remote diagnostics and reports allow service teams to monitor the vehicle’s health and productivity parameters. Available as a subscription-based service at an affordable price, DiGiSENSE will eventually be available across the entire line-up of Mahindra’s vehicles. DiGiSENSE will be available at a delta price of Rs. 5,000 for Jeeto (X716 BS4) and Rs 6,000 for Imperio (SC VX and DC VX). Mahindra is also providing an invitation offer of 1 year free subscription for the customers.
