Monday 30 November 2020 10:39 CET | News

Hyundai Motor's luxury car brand Genesis has announced the release GV70, a sport utility vehicle, featuring an in-car digital payment system that uses fingerprints for the authentication of drivers.
The concept of in-vehicle digital payment was revealed by Hyundai's auto group in November 2019. The carmaker revealed a plan to commercialize an infotainment system that allows users to make payments and use membership cards at gas stations without leaving their cars. Hyundai said its future cars would have a fingerprint sensor for authentication. 

Genesis said that Carpay is the first in-vehicle digital payment system to use fingerprints to authenticate drivers. Other than making digital payments, the fingerprint scanner will be used for hiding private information from the car's infotainment system or customize the position of car seats.
