Zendrive reports that it is powering Autio Drive & Save, giving its users a chance to save on their auto insurance with safer driving behavior. Drivers using Autio hear short stories about surrounding history, culture, nature, and more narrated by professional narrators, including Kevin Costner, co-founder of the company. Users can access the driving program using the Autio app.

When Autio’s users opt into Autio Drive & Save, Zendrive’s proprietary Mobility Risk Intelligence (MRI) technology analyzes users’ driving behavior without requiring user intervention. During this trial period, users get direct feedback on how they’re driving (i.e., whether they’re checking their phones or speeding frequently) to help them drive safer and boost their chances of earning a personalized, discounted auto insurance policy.
