Yandex steps up carputer sales
5 Jul '19
Yandex, one of Russia’s leading IT companies, earlier this summer launched carputer sales with preinstalled proprietary services through third-party retailers. MTS, a leading domestic telecom operator, is now Yandex’s first retail partner, the Russian business daily Vedomosti reported.
Before the partnership Yandex was only selling carputers online all on its own.
MTS outlets are now offering a system that has both Yandex and MTS services preinstalled.
Yandex carputers and other automotive electronics entered the market in early 2019. The IT giant’s strategy is to cover the automotive mass market segment. Its carputers are currently fully compatible with 18 models of the Renault, Lada, Volkswagen, Toyota, Kia, Skoda, Mitsubishi, Hyundai and Nissan makes.
