Vodafone Idea and Kia Motors have inked a pact wherein the telco will provide Internet of Things (IoT) solutions - in navigation, safety and security, vehicle management, remote control and convenience - for the India debut of UVO connected car system in the Kia Motors' SUV Seltos.

According to the statement by the operator, Kia Seltos will have advanced connected car functionality, while Vodafone Idea’s IoT solutions will help the car maker to deploy a strong, connected solution in the Indian market through integration of eSIMS with Voice, 3G/4G data, SMS, Secured APN service and API integration.
