Jaguar drivers can now use their car’s touchscreen to access a new cashless fuel payment app.
A partnership between Jaguar and Shell has delivered the first cashless fuel payment app designed specifically for a car. The app is among model enhancements for Jaguar XE, XF and F-PACE models.
Drivers can use PayPal or Apple Pay via their car’s touchscreen to pay for fuel at Shell service stations.
And company car users can even log journeys and receipts via the car’s touchscreen.
Cashless fuel payment app to be fitted in all new Jaguars and Land Rovers
The Shell app will eventually become available across the entire Jaguar and Land Rover ranges.
Peter Virk, Director of Connected Car and Future Technology at Jaguar, said: “In a world where cash is no longer king, customers are increasingly using electronic payments and contactless cards.
“Making a payment directly from a car’s touchscreen will make refuelling quicker and easier.
“With this new system you can choose any pump on the forecourt and pay for the fuel even if you’ve forgotten your wallet or can’t find your credit or debit card.
“You will save time because there’s no more queuing to pay in a shop, and for drivers with children, it won’t be necessary to wake them up, or unstrap them from their seats to take them into the shop.
“Expenses and tax returns will also be made much simpler, with no receipts to lose as these will all be sent electronically.”
Shell: “Committed to continuously improve the digital experience”
David Bunch, vice-president at Shell, added: “This e-commerce collaboration with Jaguar Land Rover is part of Shell’s commitment to continuously improve the digital experience for our customers at the forecourt.
“In 2015 Shell introduced mobile payments at the pump in the UK. Now we are proud to offer the next step in cashless motoring, with Jaguar and Land Rover customers in the UK paying for their fuel using the car’s touchscreen.”
