Vauxhall Motors, a UK-based vehicle manufacturer, has entered into a partnership with ingenie to provide affordable insurance coverage to 17-25 year old used and new car drivers across the country.
As part of the agreement, ingenie will install its black box technology in the car, to enable assessment of individual driving styles, and the resulting data is fed in ingenie mobile application and is available online.
Acting as co-pilot, the technology specifically assesses key driving areas, which include speed, cornering, braking and acceleration.
The best drivers will be entitled to receive a discount of up to 10% on insurance in the first year, after the policy is reviewed every three months.
Vauxhall Marketing Programmes manager Mark Pinkney said, "Vauxhall Insurance for 17-25 year olds powered by ingenie will help make it more affordable for first time young drivers but more importantly it will encourage young people to become better drivers through ingenie’s driving feedback."
Ingenie founder and CEO Richard King added, "Young drivers find it increasingly difficult to buy affordable car insurance and ingenie offers a fairer solution that assesses them on their own merits."
Vauxhall is a subsidiary of General Motors and is the largest manufacturer of commercial vehicles in the UK.
