Stellantis Becomes First Automaker to Deploy Safety Cloud® Alerts
In a transformational step towards more connected and protected roadways, international automaker Stellantis (formally FCA Automotive) announced last week that it is beginning in-market testing of Safety Cloud digital alerts in its vehicles. The company's initial test will deliver Safety Cloud alerts directly to company-owned vehicles in metro Detroit in 2018-and-newer models of some of the most recognized vehicle brands including Chrysler, Jeep®, Dodge, and Ram.
This integration is a major milestone on the journey to safer roads. To date, Safety Cloud has processed more than 1 billion digital alerts to drivers. With this new partnership, even more drivers will now gain access to real-time alerts in their vehicle dashboard when they're in close proximity to an active emergency vehicle, tow truck, or other roadway hazard without having to download or utilize any additional third-party application.
Safety Cloud digital alerts are delivered up to 30 seconds in advance of an emergency scene to give drivers ample time to make a safe decision and comply with state Move Over laws. Advanced warning systems like Safety Cloud digital alerts have been shown to lower the chances of a collision by 90%, and a recent Purdue study showed that queue trucks equipped with digital alerts helped to reduce hard-braking events on Interstates by 80%.
Stellantis’ demonstrated commitment to customer safety and a connected vehicle future with zero roadway deaths is perfectly aligned with HAAS Alert's vision for a connected, collision-free world where everyone gets home safely. HAAS Alert applauds Stellantis for its leadership in safety innovation and looks forward to working together in the months ahead to build a brighter, safer future for everyone on the road.
Stellantis is the sixth largest auto manufacturer in the world that is responsible for brands like Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Citroën, Dodge, DS, Fiat, Fiat Professional, Jeep, Lancia, Maserati, Mopar, Opel, Peugeot, Ram and Vauxhall. Stellantis is present in over 130 countries and more than 300,000 employees. Stellantis will leverage its broad and iconic brand portfolio, which was founded by visionaries who infused the brands with passion and a competitive spirit that speaks to employees and customers alike. Stellantis aspires to become the greatest, not the biggest, while creating added value for all stakeholders, as well as the communities in which it operates.
