A Bentley fuel delivery service is currently being trialled by the company in collaboration with US tech start-up Filld.
The scheme, called Filld for Bentley, allows Bentley owners to order fuel to be delivered to their car via an app. It will even, in the future, allow the car to place orders for fuel itself depending on its fuel level, location and the driver’s preferences.
Bentley has provided few details about specific scenarios but claims the fuel can be delivered “wherever and whenever they [the driver] require”.
The scheme is one of the first pieces of connected car technology that Bentley has showcased since the topic became a buzzword in the car industry.
Bentley’s director of product and marketing, Christophe Georges, described the scheme as “affording our customers the greatest luxury of all: more time”.
He said: “Our connected car strategy will continue to expand and innovate in order to further enhance the Bentley lifestyle. Bentley ownership is about more than just the vehicle. It’s the entire luxury experience. We are continuously investigating ways in which to offer our customers tailored, convenient, smart services.”
