Hyundai to use iPad as owners manual for Equus sedan

Updated

Hyundai has announced that it will be bundling an iPad with its new flagship Equus sedan. USA Today reports that the iPad will serve as the $50,000-plus luxury sedan’s “interactive” owner’s manual, but will also be available for regular use. In addition, owners will be able to use the device to schedule service appointments. “Many will respond positively to the inclusion of an iPad, not because they needed or planned to buy one, but simply because it is topical and cool,” said William Matthies of research firm Coyote Insight. Hyundai hopes to sell about 3,000 Equus sedans next year. [via MDN]
