Hyundai launches world's first contactless giving car for Stand Up To Cancer

To be unveiled in London next month, the car will feature at a number of events between then and November

Hyundai has created a unique version of its Ioniq Electric car to enable people to make contactless donations to a cancer campaign.  

The Korean manufacturer has partnered with Stand Up To Cancer, the joint national fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4, to build the world's first contactless car. The car has five giving points that will accept donations of £5 or £10.

Officially unveiled next month in London, the car will feature at a number of high-profile events throughout the country between May and November.

Supporters will also be able to have their photographs taken inside the Ioniq Electric, which will then be stuck to the car’s exterior. The total raised throughout the tour will feature on the vehicle via a digital totaliser on the number plates. The car will "thank" those who have donated using audio and visual cues and electronic movements.

Rachel Carr, head of Stand Up To Cancer, said: "We’re always looking for new ways to engage and excite supporters, and Hyundai has come up trumps with the creation of the world’s first contactless car. It’s an exciting partnership that brings a fun and simple way of donating to the masses.

"We’re hoping people across the UK will be impressed and inspired by the vehicle and will choose to tap and donate to support Stand Up To Cancer’s work to bring kinder and better treatments to patients, faster."
