In a bold move, the Hyundai Click to Buy online car purchase system gets extended with the arrival of Click to Fly 2 hour drone delivery.
With the Click to Buy website you can click your car of choice, pick your options and sort out your finance, all whilst tucking in to an Indian on a Friday night with a glass of good red.
But now, thanks to Hyundai’s new ‘Hy-Drones’ you can – if you’re happy to take a stock car – make your choices, pay your money and have your new Hyundai delivered using Click to Fly before you’ve poured the last glass of red from the bottle.
The new Hy-Drones use Hyundai’s Fuel Cell technology and aviation software developed for Mars exploration to ensure accurate deliveries, and the new drones can manage up to 2000kg (enough for a Santa Fe) and travel at up to 190knots.
With deliveries coming from Hyundai’s import centre in Tilbury (just 10 minutes flying time from Cars UK Towers), their top speed means they have a two hour range of around 400 miles – just about enough for deliveries across the whole UK (well, as far north as Aberdeen, anyway).
Tony Whitehorn, Hyundai UK CEO, said:
We are extremely proud to announce the launch of Click to Fly, a ground-breaking world first for the automotive industry.
Following the success of our new website, Click to Buy, we’ve spent time listening to our customers.
Click to Fly [is] a delivery service that makes the process of buying a new car faster and more convenient than ever before, doing away with the existing new car delivery methods – and offering customers the ability to experience a super speedy service.
Innovation is at the core of everything we do at Hyundai and this is just the start of us offering exactly what our customers want, quickly and at an affordable price. Over the coming months we’ll be looking to add even more functionality to Click to Buy – watch this space!
Customers can us the Click to Fly service when they order on Hyundai’s Click to Buy site from today (01/04/17)
