Lear Corp. announced that its Xevo software business has partnered with Grubhub to deliver contactless food ordering capabilities in Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) via an app on the Uconnect Market connected services platform.
Developed in partnership with Xevo, Uconnect Market enables consumer interactions with popular brands and services through embedded ordering and transaction capabilities via the in-vehicle touchscreen. This partnership expands Uconnect Market's transaction capabilities, allowing consumers to complete contactless transactions in a variety of areas, including food, fuel, and parking, without touching shared surfaces.
FCA vehicles are the first to feature the Grubhub app as part of their connected services offerings, allowing consumers to quickly and easily reorder favorites while on the go. Uconnect Market is available in model-year 2019 and 2020 Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram brand vehicles equipped with connected services and the latest generation of 8.4-inch touchscreens.
Contactless Car Service
In addition to its reorder function, the Grubhub in-vehicle app also makes it easy for consumers to discover new favorites. If consumers are near a restaurant they have not ordered from before, they can tap a single button that will forward the restaurant's menu to their email for review later, when they are not driving.
"In-car technology and connected services are growing exponentially in the automotive industry and we have challenged ourselves to stay ahead of the curve with our powerful Uconnect 5 system," said Alan D'Agostini, Director - Global Connected Services, FCA. "With the addition of Grubhub to Uconnect Market, FCA's in-vehicle commerce platform, we offer our customers a convenient option to food ordering, adding to the positive connectivity experience."
