Tesla Signs with DOCOMO for Telematics in Japan

Telsa Motors has selected NTT DOCOMO to provide M2M connectivity and mobile communications for the Tesla Model S in Japan.

The in-car telematics include navigation using high-resolution maps, online music such as on-demand Internet radio, and communications via the vehicle's 17-inch touchscreen. Tesla anticipates first deliveries of it its Model S in Japan this summer.

Tesla selected DOCOMO after favorably evaluating its mobile network infrastructure's stable, extra-wide availability, including in downtown areas with skyscrapers and in mountainous regions, and extensive support for corporate customers.
