European Commission mobility package: European insurers call for concrete action on access to vehicle data

Insurance Europe welcomes the European Commission’s communication on An EU strategy for mobility for the future, but calls for the Commission to go further and faster on the topic of access to vehicle data.

Nicolas Jeanmart, head of personal insurance, general insurance and macroeconomics at Insurance Europe, commented: “Insurance Europe welcomes the European Commission’s acknowledgement that action must be taken to ensure drivers can fully experience the benefits that their vehicle data can offer. However, it is disappointing that the Commission falls short of proposing clear next steps to ensure a level-playing field for service providers, and to ensure consumers really decide who has access to their data and for what purpose. 

“On the topic of liability and automated mobility, Insurance Europe welcomes the fact that the Commission has confirmed that the Motor Insurance Directive is fit for purpose for autonomous vehicles.”
