General Motors Fleet revealed its all-new OnStar Business Solutions, which brings four distinct product offerings together — OnStar Safety Services, OnStar Vehicle Insights, API & Data Services, and Wi-Fi — to simplify fleet management for customers.
General Motors Chairman and CEO Mary Barra officially revealed OnStar Business Solutions during the General Motors Fleet Virtual Solutions Summit on Aug. 25, 2020.
“OnStar is taking its more than 20 years of safety and security expertise and expanding its offerings to meet the needs of fleet managers and small business owners in a new, more seamless way,” the automaker said.
With OnStar Business Solutions, customers can choose from the following business fleet products and services:
OnStar Safety Services
OnStar Safety Services aims to keep drivers safe and assets secure.
Available plans include:
- Safety and security: Provides Automatic Crash Response and 24/7 access to OnStar’s specially trained advisors to help with any road emergency.
- Assurance: Includes essential services like Automatic Crash Response, Emergency Services, and Stolen Vehicle Assistance.
- Driver remote access: Allows drivers to perform remote commands, like lock and unlock, from a vehicle’s mobile app.
OnStar Vehicle Insights
GM’s newest fleet telematics solution, OnStar Vehicle Insights, provides fleet managers and drivers with the tools they need to make the most of their daily operations.
- Vehicle locator: View the location of all fleet vehicles in real time.
- Vehicle health: View vehicle mileage, oil life and fuel efficiency, as well as receive preventative service prompts and maintenance notifications.

API & Data Services
OnStar Business Solutions works with a number of telematic service providers and fleet management companies to provide reliable, accurate data to help take a business’ fleet operations to the next level.
Wi-Fi keeps fleet vehicles and drivers connected. Crews can connect up to seven devices within 50 feet of the available 4G LTE Wi-Fi vehicle hotspot.
“We understand that every fleet operation has its own needs and goals and that there isn’t one perfect fleet management solution for everyone,” said Michelle Calloway, director of OnStar Business Solutions. “We created OnStar Business Solutions so our fleet customers can go to one place to learn about all of our products and offerings and choose the option that will best keep them protected, connected, informed and in control.”
Pricing will vary depending on the service plan selected.
