Fleet news logo

DS Automobiles has launched the first integrated contactless payment car key, powered by bPay.

Available on the new DS 3 Connected Chic model, the 2-in-1 device integrates a bPay payment chip, which turns the existing car key into a convenient way to pay.

Customers who purchase a DS 3 Connected Chic model throughout September will receive the integrated key, allowing them to make safe and fast purchases up to the eligible spending limit of £30 at more than 490,000 locations across the UK.

Mark Blundell, UK marketing director at DS Automobiles, said: “At DS we’re always looking at how we can credibly complement our customer’s active lifestyles, where staying connected and being able to easily interact with the world is key. With the combination of connectivity features integrated into DS 3 Connected Chic models, and the ability to make those must have purchases by using one integrated device – with the DS contactless payment car key, we really feel we have achieved this.”

DS 3 Connected Chic is the new well-equipped trim level model, offering 17-inch black diamond-cut ‘Aphrodite’ alloy wheels, automatic air-conditioning and eMyWay satellite navigation.

Prices start from £15,775 OTR with a 3-year warranty.
