The Movement #6

October 3, 2022

Hello DIMO Community!

The DIMO landscape changes fast. Check out some new sections and data that show you where we are heading together.

  • 💰 Save money with Carousell. One of the first apps building on DIMO, Carousell offers users an incredibly easy way to save money with DIMO data. In some cases, thousands of dollars.
  • 🔌 Data insights. We're starting to find some information within DIMO vehicle data, and we're just at the tip of the iceberg.
  • 📦 Shipping is a bit behind. While shipping continues to increase, there have been a few bugs that led to delays. We still expect to fulfill all preorders by the end of November.

🛠 Built on DIMO

DIMO is a place for you to discover new apps and services that can save you money

Introducing Built on DIMO — the place you can find new projects building on DIMO data.

  • Carousell (https://www.carousell.autos/) Carousell is a vehicle concierge that uses your DIMO data to help you save. Start with a Vehicle Genius Report on your car to find out if holding, refinancing, or selling would be most economical. If you're planning to sell your car or buy a new one, a Carousell expert can help. Some DIMO users have saved more than +$7,000 each by using Carousell to find the best price for their car or a path to refinancing. Book a free consultation for a limited time.

📊 Telematics

Monthly recap of DIMO Network growth with a focus on stats and data from the project

We like milestones, and we reached another one! 3,000 cars have officially connected to DIMO.

So what are we seeing across those vehicles? We're beginning to explore. One interesting chart shows how much more volatile fuel is for gas cars vs. EVs. With EV drivers often charging at home, their average fuel level is much higher. They also don't have to hedge their behavior as much with the rise and fall of commodities.

Data Insights from DIMO
When gas prices rose earlier this year, gas car drivers adjusted to keeping less in the tank. They then shifted back as prices came down.

📦 Shipping DIMO Hardware

Shipping updates

This September we will more than double the shipping output from the month before. This puts us a little behind our goal, but still leaves us in good position to ramp up since inventory is not the limiting factor. We had a software bug to fix this month which caused minor delays, but with the patch out, we can keep speeding up. We expect all pre-orders to be fulfilled by end of November.

Shipping more than doubled
Doubling twice more means we meet all the pre-order obligations in the next two months.

📱 Product News

Product announcements and news with a focus on shipping

We've focused mainly on quality of life improvements in the app this month. This means bug fixes, feature enhancements, and reducing friction. Keep a look out for the next update when you'll see some the car keys — a gateway to some more features in DIMO.

New features coming soon
Create your Vehicle ID, add documents to your glovebox, and more.
