Launched at the 2016 Paris Motor Show for users of new ZOE equipped with the Z.E. 40 battery, the "Renault Connected Insurance" mobile app was voted Best Innovation in the Connected Objects category of the 2016 Argus Digital Insurance Awards[1]. Through a monthly analysis of data via Renault R-Link[2], the new app places money in a "kitty" that rewards policyholders for their driving styles. A first in France for a carmaker


Proposed by DIAC in partnership with Amaguiz, the "Renault Connected Insurance" mobile app compiles mileage, driving times and travel times to establish a daily score. Through personalized advice on limiting the risk of an accident, policyholders are encouraged to improve their driving style and stand to earn a sum equal to up to 36% of their annual insurance premiums. Available in the form of electronic gift cards, the total amount can be spent at over 500 retailers.


Looking beyond the benefits for users, the app won the award for its innovative character, with Renault the first carmaker to propose a connected insurance offer in France.

Corresponding directly to customer use, the integrated telematics offer previews new and upcoming connected services set for launch in France in 2017. The offer is also fully commensurate with RCI Bank and Services' aim to become the benchmark brand in automobility, notably through intuitive and digital solutions.
