According to the report, the value of the connected mobility market could reach the size of USD 3 billion by 2020 in India. Currently, only 2 percent of cars in the country are considered connected cars.

As per the report, the demand for connected car services is expected to grow exponentially in India and mirror the global growth trends. Globally, the size of the connected mobility market is projected to grow to USD 175 billion by 2020, as against USD 44 billion in 2015.

"With the automobile industry going through a major transformation, MG India aims to take the lead in connected mobility and establish the connected vehicle ecosystem in India," MG Motor India President and MD Rajeev Chaba said in a statement.

The partnership with both tech giants involves incorporating tracking, security and navigation amongst many other features in MG Motor India vehicles, with an aim to offer a differentiated customer experience in the country, he added.

SEA (Cisco IoT) Regional MD Alok Srivastava said cars of the future would not be seen just as a product but a platform, through which various services can be offered.

"A vehicle that is constantly connected offers a myriad of opportunities," he added.

Similarly, UNLIMIT CEO Juergen Hase said the consumer demand for connected mobility enabled vehicles in India has strong potential and is expected to mirror global growth trends, thereby also opening vast avenues for startups to develop domain specific applications and services that will enhance customer experience.
