Jaguar And Shell Introduce World's First In-Car Payment App For Cashless Refueling
Jaguar will be offering a cashless way to pay for fuel. The carmaker is partnering with Shell in introducing the world's first ever in-car payment system. The new app will utilize Apple Pay to pay for fuel without coughing out cash or using a card. It can even be done without the driver getting out of the car. The new system will be available in some Shell stations and among selected Jaguar vehicles. Reports say the Jaguar XE, XF, and F-PACE models will initially have this new feature.
The in-car payment system starts off with the driver opening the Shell app in his or her iPhone via the car's InControl system, a feature where Jaguar owners are connected to their vehicles through numerous services and apps. The Shell app will appear on the touchscreen of the in-car display. The app will then lead the driver to the nearest Shell station with support for the payment app. After arriving at the station, the driver can choose and tell the app which pump will be used to refuel the car. Once the vehicle is filled up and the transaction is completed, the app will indicate the details of the transaction in a receipt.
Jaguar Land Rover Director of Connected Technologies and Apps, Peter Virk, explained that electronic payments and contactless cards are fast gaining popularity as the payment method of choice. He added that paying just by tapping on the touchscreen in the car will make refuelling faster and easier. Virk also mentioned that entering and lining up to pay in a shop will also no longer be necessary
According to Mac Rumors, the new cashless payment system is supported by Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles with the InControl infotainment system. It is also available only in the United Kingdom so far. It will, however, be available worldwide within the year.
Aside from the new in-app payment system, the said Jaguar vehicles also get the new gesture technology in which drivers can open the trunk of their cars just by performing a gesture. The F-PACE, XE and XF line will also receive the latest Ingenium engines which are available for both petrol and diesel.
