KIRKLAND, Wash., Nov. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- INRIX, Inc., the world leader in connected car services and transportation analytics, today announced that its Off-Street Parking and Fuel services will be soon available in the all-new Porsche Panamera vehicles in Europe and North America. Drivers will be able to easily find, compare and navigate to available off-street parking spaces, as well as search for and drive to the lowest fuel prices nearby.
"Dynamic services are no longer just a selling point but a requirement. As a matter of fact, 81 percent of drivers currently use or are considering using in-car connectivity for information," said Andreas Hecht, executive vice president and general manager of automotive at INRIX. "Real-time information, like traffic, parking and fuel, plays a critical role in the entire driving experience." Joining other luxury automakers that have recently incorporated INRIX's parking services, Porsche will now allow drivers to access dynamic off-street parking information, including routes to the closest garage locations, detailed rates, amenities, restrictions and real-time occupancy.
