updated 03:52 pm EDT, Mon March 10, 2014

Offerings available at first for 2015 A3, will be added to other vehicles

Audi of America and AT&T have announced 4G LTE data plans for the 2015 A3 Sedan, which debuts this month, and will enable the first-ever in-vehicle 4G LTE data connection in North America. Additionally, Audi has revealed that an accompanying mobile app will allow advanced functionality between the in-car system and smartphones, reducing the need for Audi motorists to handle devices when accessing some smartphone-based features.

Based on previous data points collected from Audi owners, and AT&T will offer two limited data plans: a six-month plan with 5GB of data, and a 30-month plan with 30 GB. All Audi A3 sedans equipped with Audi Connect will receive a free six-month trial period. Customers can be sent email alerts if they near the data plan limit.

This summer, Audi will become the first automaker to offer a Mobile Share data plan option to AT&T wireless customers who would like to add a vehicle to an existing Mobile Share plan. Audi plans to roll out 4G LTE capability across its entire lineup, as new or refreshed models come to market.
