Jaguar drivers can now use their car’s touchscreen to pay for fuel with a new cashless payment app. The Shell app is one of several new enhancements to Jaguar’s F-PACE, XE and XF models .Other updates include addition of convenience features such as gesture technology where the sweep of a foot can open the boot.
Rather than using a card at the pump, or queuing in the forecourt shop, owners who install the Shell app can simply drive up to any pump at a Shell service station (initially in the UK and then globally)and use the vehicle’s touchscreen to select how much fuel they require and pay using PayPal or Apple Pay. Android Pay will be added later in 2017.
An electronic receipt will be displayed on the touchscreen, so customers can leave the forecourt confident of having paid. A receipt will also be sent directly from the pump to the driver’s email address so it can be added to accounting or expenses software.
Shell and Jaguar Land Rover have created a simple but secure customer experience that uses geo location technology and a cloud based pre-payment check with the PayPal or Apple Pay wallet.
The Shell app with in-car cashless payments is available to download from 15 February and will be rolled out to additional markets globally during 2017.
The new in-car cashless payment app is available across the enhanced Jaguar F-PACE performance SUV, F-TYPE and XF and XE sports saloon model ranges, as well as the latest Land Rover models.
