Do any carmakers offer dash cameras as standard?

I'm looking to install a dash camera in our Audi A3 and this got me thinking that all manufacturers should fit them as standard or at least offer them as an option. Are there any manufacturers that do install them as standard? Should also be a lower insurance cost, too.

I believe Citroen is the only car manufacturer to offer them as standard currently. It's odd that it's not more common. Our New Cars Editor, Andrew, ran a C3 for six months and much preferred its hidden ConnectedCam to an aftermarket unit. It likely comes down to cost, but I'm sure we'll see more built-in dashcams in the future. As for insurers offering dash cam discounts, some actually do. Nextbase, a UK dash cam manufacturer, also offers its own insurance. The firm says that a third of customers will pay less than £250 for fully comprehensive cover, while more than half can save 30% or more on their policy. You can read about it here:

I have a new car and want a dash cam with parking mode. Is it possible to have one that doesn't need hard wiring? I'd prefer it to run on aux socket, but would it stop working when I turn off the ignition?
Can I have your opinion on dual dash cams, i.e. a camera with front and back lenses versus two separate cameras?
