According to the European Commission sources, the EU executive is expected to launch an industry consultation on in-vehicle data this week. This could lead to legislation later in 2022.

While car makers are in a strong position to determine who accesses the data gotten from web-enabled vehicles, insurers and repair shops want drivers to choose who has access to their vehicles’ data.
