NEW YORK — SiriusXM and Nissan have teamed up on a new telematics program that will debut on select 2016 model-year vehicles, starting with Nissan’s flagship Maxima sedan.

NissanConnect is the OEM’s first-in-vehicle launch of SiriusXM’s connected vehicle services. It features vehicle security, vehicle healthy monitoring, remove access services and more.

"SiriusXM is thrilled to be Nissan's exclusive provider for this world-class suite of security, convenience, and remote features to match the driving needs of its customers," said Larry Pesce, group vice president and general manager of connected vehicle and infotainment for SiriusXM. "Offering the support drivers want and need on the road, along with the critically-acclaimed satellite radio they love, builds on our long relationship with Nissan and its customers."

The following are the three levels of service debuting on select 2016 model-year Nissan vehicles:

  • NissanConnect Services: The base package will include emergency services, including automatic collision notification, emergency calling, and stolen-vehicle locator and maintenance alerts such as customized messaging and maintenance reminders.
  • NissanConnect Services Premium: The mid-tier package includes all the features from the base package plus remote services, including remote start and remote door lock/unlock, as well as monitoring alerts like boundary alert, valet alert and curfew alert.
  • NissanConnect Services Premium Plus: The top-tier package adds to the suite of services included in the base and premium packages by including a suite of destination services such as assisted search, connected search and journey planner.

NissanConnect Services was developed in coordination with Nissan Research Center Silicon Valley. For more information on NissanConnect, click here.
