Jaguar has announced that it will launch a world-first system in conjunction with Shell to allow customers to fill up and pay for petrol without the need to head into the service station.

British customers will be able to pay for fuel without leaving their car via the vehicle's touchscreen and a specialised app to approve the purchase using PayPal or Apple Pay.

The system can then send fuel receipts to your email address, simplifying expense reporting for business users.

The Shell app will be available in 2018 model year XE, XF and F-Pace models. Existing cars built since 2014 may also be compatible with the system.

Jaguar is also looking to expand the in-car payment system to work with parking and drive-through food payments.

It could mean the end of corporate fuel cards for leased or company cars, as Jaguar could simply approve fleet payment plans for large numbers of vehicles.

Jaguar spokesman Petr Virk says the system will save customers time.

"In a world where cash is no longer king, customers are increasingly using electronic payments and contactless cards. Making a payment directly from a car's touchscreen will make refuelling quicker and easier," he says.

"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."

Shell says the system is exclusive to the UK for now, but that it "will be rolled out to additional markets globally during 2017". A spokesman for Jaguar in Australia told Drive it is likely to be available locally in 2018.
