Without the need for a car plug-in device, Ford customers have the potential to receive driving discounts with their connected vehicle
Liberty Mutual Insurance has joined forces with Ford to offer the potential for the insured’s customers to receive driving discounts if they drive a Ford connected vehicle. The endeavor is part of the Boston-based insurer’s broader “Mobility Initiative”, which aims to bring new technologies to the insurance experience.
“At Liberty Mutual, we are always looking to provide innovative, new solutions to meet and exceed our customers’ evolving insurance needs,” said Nicholas Grant, Vice President and Manager, Product Technology Solutions, at Liberty Mutual Insurance. “We’re excited to extend our work with Ford to leverage its leading connected car platform to bring this technology to more drivers and put our customers in the driver’s seat of their own insurance experience.”
Those Liberty Mutual insureds who drive a Ford will be able to employ FordPass Connect, a seamless process enabling the evaluation of a customer’s driving behavior without the need for a plug-in device. According to the insurer, going forward Liberty Mutual insureds will be able to take advantage of this opportunity with nearly all 2020 model year Ford connected vehicles.
“Liberty is committed to deep partnerships across mobility partners including many OEMs to support their customers’ insurance needs of today and in the future,” said Kara Shipulski, Vice President, Strategic Partnerships Group.
“Connected vehicles have the potential to deliver great benefits to Ford customers, including the ability to help lower their car insurance premiums,” said Kari Novatney, COO FordPass. “Liberty Mutual’s program is an excellent example of what connected vehicles can offer, and using data to help people save money is another way Ford is committed to improving the customer experience.
Liberty Mutual’s diverse telematics programs help customers save on auto insurance based on their driving habits. With connected vehicles, Liberty Mutual is able to further streamline the insurance evaluation process, making it easier for customers to help save on their auto insurance with customized pricing.
The Connected Vehicle Program creates a seamless, incentive-based insurance experience for customers powered by connected car data. It also represents an extension of Liberty Mutual’s existing partnership with Ford which spans three decades and insures both personal and commercial business globally.
