Buick drivers will find a new capability baked into the GM Marketplace system. The brand, along with ExxonMobil, announced in-car fuel payment capability on Tuesday.
Drivers will be able to pay for fuel at more than 11,000 Exxon or Mobil stations without using their smartphone or swiping a credit card. Marketplace will also automatically sync a driver’s ExxonMobil Speedpass+ app account.
“Our goal with Marketplace is to help make everyday tasks as easy as possible for our customers so they can focus on enjoying time spent in their vehicles,” said Rick Ruskin, Marketplace Line of Business leader, Buick. “Bringing the ExxonMobil pay for fuel functionality right on the touchscreen of our vehicles is the latest advancement of this platform, allowing drivers to easily access Speedpass+ and securely pay for gas while inside their car.”
Those who opt to use the in-car fueling service will press the ExxonMobil app in the Marketplace system, select the pump number and confirm their payment method. The pump will then activate to begin the fueling process.
While Buick cozies up to ExxonMobil, Chevrolet offers a similar service at Shell stations with a pilot program currently in select regions across the U.S. Chevrolet plans to roll the functionality out to all vehicles in the near future. The Buick-ExxonMobil service is available now.
