Jaguar, Shell announce wireless cashless payments for fuel

Motor manufacturer Jaguar, in partnership with Shell, has announced an easier method of paying for your fuel through their cashless payment app.

Instead of having to go through the hassles of waiting for a card machine at a petrol pump, owners of the Jaguar’s F-PACE, XE and XF models could now use their touchscreens to pay for fuel.

“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,” said Jaguar Land Rover’s Director of Connected Car and Future Technology.

The Shell cashless payment app can be used by simply driving up to the pump, and inputting the required details. You then pay using PayPal or Apple Pay. Android Pay will be introduced later this year.

The app is already available to download in the UK. It will be established in South Africa in 2018.

Other vehicles to be receiving the app are the Jaguar F-PACE performance SUV, F-TYPE and XF and XE sports sedan model range as well as the latest Land Rover models.
