DS launches connected car key for contactless payments

Citroen's luxury arm, DS, has launched a new trim level for its DS 3 hatchback, which comes with a rather clever key. Offered as standard equipment on the new DS 3 Connected Chic, the key can be loaded up with your bank details and will operate as a contactless payment system.

The key can be used for purchases of up to £30 in an increasing number of shops, petrol stations and other businesses across the country – over 490,000 at the last count.
