We are in Bowling Green, Kentucky today for the start of the 28th Anniversary Show at the National Corvette Museum and we already have a piece of news to share.

Beginning September 1st, Chevrolet is now making mandatory a three-year subscription to the OnStar application for everyone buying a 2023 Corvette Stingray or Z06.

The cost of the subscription is $300, and the app includes the ability to remote start, receive vehicle diagnostics, and more. This is a limited version of the OnStar app and doesn’t include the ability to make calls or get turn-by-turn directions.

In August, GM started adding a three-year subscription to OnStar and Connected Services for $1,500 to all Buicks and GMCs. While it’s called an option, there is no way to opt-out of it other than not using it.

General Motors has said it believes customers will pay for subscriptions services and they are rolling out an ambitious plan to increase its revenue from subscriptions significantly by the end of the decade. GMs Steve Carlisle said the automaker is looking to offer customers more than 50 new fee-based digital features by 2026.
