LAS VEGAS, Nevada – Chevrolet models coming out during 2014 will have a new feature – 4G connectivity.

General Motors is to deploy fourth-generation (4G) internet connection in several models to help people who want to stay connected with the growing number of apps for automobiles.

Chevrolet will fit 4G connections with Long Term Evolution - a standard wireless communication of high-speed data for mobile phones and data terminals - in partnership with AT&T to increase capacity and speed using a different radio interface with core network improvements.


Alan Batey, senior vice-president of Global Chevrolet, added: "The move shows our broad commitment to deliver more value and convenience through smart-technology applications."

The high-speed connection will create a hot spot through which passengers can connect tablets and similar devices or watch video via the internet in vehicles which have screens.

The 4G cars will for the time being be sold only in the US and Canada.

Batey added: "This technology is not just for the rich and famous. You're going to be connected everywhere."

10 models would get 4G by mid-2014, more would be added, he said.
