Eliocity at CES 2016

Eliocity unveils the XeeSTORE and the new generation XeeCONNECT box


From 6 to 9 January 2016 at this year's CES (the Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas, Eliocity will be showing its Xee solution – a comprehensive and innovative system that will change the lives of all motorists – for the first time.
Eliocity will also be using the event to unveil XeeSTORE – a platform for driving applications – for the very first time. 
And it will be unveiling its new generation XeeCONNECT before it goes on sale at the end of January.

Las Vegas, USA, 7 January 2016 - For the first time, Eliocity – a start-up company that develops mobility-related technologies – is at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas alongside French Tech to present its Xee solution, the first connected vehicle ecosystem. Xee is easy to use and already comes loaded with 3 basic services for drivers: 

  • Security: if your vehicle has been moved, has been involved in an accident or has been left unlocked, Xee will send you an alert immediately,
  • Confidence: You can access your car's data directly from your smartphone.
  • Economy: eco-driving, connected maintenance… with Xee, your car will cost you less.

These three native services are provided by the XeeCONNECT box which decodes data from the car, together with the XeeSTORE application platform. Both the XeeSTORE and the new-generation XeeCONNECT are being revealed exclusively at CES.

XeeSTORE is a platform exclusively dedicated to driving; it provides drivers with a selection of free of charge practical applications for monitoring their connected cars. Users can first access the Xee application from their smartphones to secure both their car and their passengers, and can then take advantage of a range of third-party applications for services such as car-sharing, pay-how-you-drive insurance cover and eco-driving. Although more than ten applications are already available (including Xee, Xee budget, Norauto, My Xee, JeeDom, Domonux and Bill it!), Eliocity aims to have more than a hundred by the end of the year. Eventually, each user will have access to applications tailored to their needs thanks to XeeCLOUD, an open development platform which anyone wanting to develop new services for drivers will be able to use (developers, insurers, car hire companies, motorway management companies, maintenance centers, etc.). Strategic partnerships have already been concluded with TomTom, RentACar and Norauto.

 CES is also an opportunity for Eliocity to unveil its new generation XeeCONNECT box. Featuring a brand-new design, the new generation XeeCONNECT is also universal, meaning that it can be used with all vehicle makes and models. It sends the vehicle's data to the user's smartphone – either by Bluetooth when they are actually in the car, or remotely via the box's GPRS connection, without any additional subscription charges. This data is then converted into readable information that the user can view using various Xee applications.  XeeCONNECT will be released at the end of January 2016 and will cost €139. It will be available from www.xee.com, as well as from the following distribution networks: Norauto, Amazon, LDLC.com and Boulanger.
