AT&T welcomes Volvo to its connected-car fold


Volvo's already got game when it comes to the connected car, what with its grocery delivery concept and vehicle-to-vehicle communications system. But this year, the automobile manufacturer is joining the AT&T flock to bring even faster in-car wireless services to its Sensus Connect infotainment center, courtesy of the carrier's Single SIM platform. Customers in the US and Canada who purchase a model from Volvo's 2015 lineup (like the new V70 seen above) will gain access to Volvo On Call, which lets you tap into tire and fuel level notifications, roadside assistance and the like, right from Volvo's iOS app. Sound awesome? If so, you can splurge on a new ride as early as this summer. Unless you're holding out for Apple's much cheaper CarPlay option, of course.
