The French firm has become the first to fit an insurance black box as standard into one of its cars, the Citroen C1 Connexion.

Black box technology records data on when and how the car is driven - including speed and acceleration - so insurance companies can analyse driving style and alter the insurance premiums accordingly. Good, gentle drivers, who perhaps don't drive during the riskiest (or busiest) times, will be rewarded by cheaper insurance renewal prices.
