NEW YORK -- Verizon Business Group and Audi of America, Inc., have partnered to deliver advanced connectivity and embedded in-vehicle Wi-Fi beginning with the next evolution of Audi's connected vehicle service launching on the 2020 Audi A4 and A5 model lines in the U.S. The Audi connect® CARE, PRIME and PLUS packages on these models feature a Verizon Unlimited data connection powered by Verizon's 4G LTE network to deliver fast, secure in-vehicle internet access to Audi customers.

For qualifying vehicles, Audi customers will receive a complimentary six-month trial of all Audi connect services including the subscription free Audi connect CARE package.

"Partnering with Verizon gives us the opportunity to deliver Audi connect services with unlimited Wi-Fi and reliable connectivity to Audi customers every time they get behind the wheel," said Pom Malhotra, director, Connected Vehicle & Data, Audi of America. "Keeping customers connected to the world and what's important to them is a demonstration of our commitment to them and to the future of mobility."
