As a part of the Reliance Jio internet and connectivity universe, Reliance has launched JioMotive, a new pocket-sized on-board diagnostics (OBD) device, which, it claims, can transform any car into a ‘smart car’.
The new device can be plugged-in to a car’s OBD port located under the dashboard and can connect the car to the Jio network via an integrated eSIM.
The device is available on Reliance Digital website, JioMart, and Amazon at INR 4,999. It offers features such as real-time location, vehicle health, driving behaviour, anti-tow and theft alert, accident detection, Wi-Fi hotspot, among others.
To install JioMotive, users will have to access the JioThings App available on Google and Apple app stores and sign up with their Jio phone number to get started.
Lately, Jio has been on a spree to launch new products. Recently, at the Indian Mobile Congress 2023 (IMC), the conglomerate launched the ‘JioPhone Prima 4G’ feature phone. Back then, it said that the phone would be made available in the market around Diwali.
Prior to that, it launched another range of internet-enabled phones, called Jio Bharat feature phones and priced at INR 999. At the time of the launch, Jio said that the device will be powered by the Jio Bharat platform which will leverage device and network capabilities to offer internet-enabled services on feature phones.
Recently, Jio also launched India’s first satellite-based giga-fibre service. The service is designed to provide last-mile fast and reliable internet connectivity. The company said it plans to make JioSpaceFiber accessible nationwide at cost-effective rates.
Jio Platforms reported a 12% year-on-year (YoY) increase in its consolidated net profit to INR 5,297 Cr in Q2 of FY24. Meanwhile, digital and new commerce businesses contributed 18% to the total revenue of Reliance Retail, its retail arm, in the September quarter.
