Hyundai has unveiled a new in-car payment system that it has developed with Zevo that makes it easier for you to pay for gas and even order food without having to leave your car.
Hyundai and Xevo showcased an in-vehicle payment concept that connects popular brands to Hyundai vehicles today at at TU-Automotive Detroit. Hyundai’s goal with the technology is to make it easier for its drivers to find and pay for gas at Chevron- and Texaco-branded stations, order and pay for Applebee’s food and to reserve and pay for parking with ParkWhiz.
“We are always learning and exploring with Blue Link, having worked with technologies like Google Glass, Amazon’s Alexa, Google Assistant, Wear OS and Apple Watch,” said Cason Grover, senior group manager, Vehicle Technology Planning, Hyundai Motor America. “Usage-based insurance and in-vehicle payment can offer savings and convenience to our customers, and we look forward to offering these services.”
Next Xevo and Hyundai are working on a Hyundai Digital Wallet payment platform, which stores a customer’s payment information to enable in-car commerce.
Hyundai’s new system is similar to GM’s new Marketplace system that lets drivers shop directly from their infotainment system.
