    Mercedes shows NFC keys in Detroit

    January 12th, 2016

    Mercedes is showing its new E-Class cars with NFC entry for the first time at the Detroit Motor Show this week. “The drive authorisation system uses NFC and allows the driver’s smartphone to be used as a vehicle key,” the luxury car maker says. The E-Class also allows a phone to be paired with the car’s entertainment system via NFC by placing it on a Qi wireless charging pad built into the centre console. The new E-Class is expected to be available from the second quarter of 2016.

    Mercedes-Benz’s upcoming W213 E-Class car will come equipped with NFC to allow keyless entry and starting. “Simply tap a phone with NFC on the driver’s door handle to lock and unlock the car,” Paul Tan’s Automotive News reports from a preview event in Stuttgart. “Once inside, placing the phone on the wireless charging plate enables the ignition. A secure SIM card is required for these functions.”
