ExxonMobil announced that its Speedpass+ app will now be available in eligible Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles through GM’s Marketplace platform.
The integration of the app into GM vehicles will allow customers to pay for gas and accumulate rewards using their car’s infotainment touch screen without accessing credit cards or mobile devices.
The Speedpass+ app, which can be used at more than 11,000 Exxon or Mobil retail stations across the U.S., enables customers to pay for fuel quickly and easily, using secure payment technology. The integration of Marketplace and Speedpass+ is ExxonMobil’s first fully embedded in-vehicle fuel payment option. Currently, more than two million 2017 and 2018 GM vehicles have Marketplace functionality. That number is expected to reach four million by the end of 2018.
“ExxonMobil continuously looks for opportunities to better serve its customers,” said Devin Miller, Americas digital app development manager, ExxonMobil Fuels & Lubricants Company. “We rolled out mobile payment options to our U.S. network in 2015, and we are continuing to innovate and simplify our consumer experience by partnering with General Motors.
Using ExxonMobil’s Speedpass+ app within Marketplace is a convenient way to pay for fuel. Customers simply press the ExxonMobil icon within Marketplace on their car’s touchscreen. The vehicle automatically identifies the station and allows customers to select the pump number and preferred payment method.
“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.”
When customers use the Speedpass+ app on their smart phone, they can also purchase carwashes and even redeem points from Exxon Mobil Rewards+, the company’s new loyalty program that was launched earlier this month.
ExxonMobil was the first major fuel retailer to implement mobile payment options at the pump throughout its U.S. network. It continues to support technology and innovation in fuel payment methods through partnerships with innovative companies.
