Hyundai introduces in-vehicle payment service Hyundai Pay on 2024 Kona; Parkopedia first service

Hyundai Motor America is bringing in-vehicle payments to customers with the introduction of Hyundai Pay. The Hyundai Pay system allows customers to find and pay for things with their vehicle’s touchscreen using securely stored credit card information.

Hyundai has partnered with Parkopedia to launch Hyundai Pay’s first service, a new parking payment system. This system enables US drivers to locate, reserve and pay for parking at 6,000 locations—all from inside their vehicle, after an initial set-up. Hyundai Pay launches with the all-new 2024 Hyundai Kona available in dealerships this fall.

An additional nine Hyundai models will get Hyundai Pay via model year changes or over-the-air updates and include Parkopedia parking payment services. In the future, the Hyundai Pay platform will also have additional features and electric-vehicle-related use cases.

Hyundai Pay platform highlights:

  • Offers customers features via the vehicle’s touchscreen and the Bluelink connected car system to enhance the driving experience.

  • The scalable in-car payments system will expand to include other uses and selected scenarios that are part of daily drives and longer trips.

  • Payments are kept secure using tokenization (replacing card account details with a unique digital identifier, or token, that keeps data from being compromised).

Drivers can also access the Hyundai Pay system through Hyundai’s Bluelink connected car services app. This provides a seamless connected service whether drivers are at home or on-the-go, with the app enabling drivers to view, book and retrieve past parking sessions for future journeys.

The new service helps to address the stress experienced by many US drivers when searching for parking, with 94% facing difficulties when locating parking—including 18% who encounter issues finding a space on every parking search, according to Parkopedia’s 2023 Global Driver Survey. There is also significant demand among American drivers for being able to find parking while inside their vehicles, with 58% wanting to be able to search for parking through their vehicle and 68% wanting to pay for parking through their in-car media system.
