Citroen is looking to make life a little easier for anybody whose life revolves around being connected on-line. The French automaker announced that their new line of vehicles, particularly the C3 , C3 Picasso , C4 , C4 Picasso , C5 , C6 , and DS3 will all be outfitted with wireless internet connectivity, appropriately titled, ‘WiFi On Board’.
Installation and use of the wireless Internet is relatively simple to do. All you need to have – apart from the car, of course – is a 3G or 3G+ SIM card, which is available just about anywhere these days. Install the card into the car’s wireless device and, voila, wireless Internet on the go!
And in the event someone decides to steal some of your signal – or to keep you from ‘abusing’ your wireless on-the-road connectivity - the car’s unique security feature comes with a roaming override function. The whole package is available for just £545, including installation and VAT charges at 17.5%. Citroen also announced that thenew feature will extend to a wider vehicular range sometime before the year ends.
Press Release after the jump.
