Sheeva.AI and VehicleCare Team Up to Enable Easier, In-Vehicle Payment for Car Washes Across India

The Sheeva.AI Team

Tysons Corner, VA, May 16, 2024 – Sheeva.AI, a leading provider of in-vehicle payments and services, and VehicleCare, the superapp operator committed to reinventing the in-cabin customer experience, today announced they have enabled booking and payment for car washes as a new service using Sheeva.AI’s platform.

This seamless access to car washes follows Sheeva.AI’s announcement earlier this spring that owners of the Citroën C3 Aircross AT can purchase fuel at many Indian gas stations, allowing payment, confirmation and rewards all from inside the car.

“Since launching in India earlier this year, it’s heartening to see the vehicle services market adopt our model of in-vehicle commerce,” said Evgeny Klochikhin, Founder and CEO of Sheeva.AI. “With this announcement, we can now empower the driver to locate and activate the car wash they choose, just like how they can use our product to pay for fuel.”

For VehicleCare, the partnership provides a new opportunity in an increasingly omnichannel marketing universe for car wash operators.

“After we saw how Sheeva.AI can activate the car wash’s operating system from inside the car while taking a digital payment, we knew we wanted our network to have access,” said Arvind Verma, CEO of VehicleCare. 

“In our continuous pursuit of innovation, we are thrilled to be a part of the connected car ecosystem, marking a significant step forward in our commitment to enhancing the automotive service experience,” he added.

Klochikhin added that when Sheeva.AI began its journey, he envisioned a simple way to pay for and activate several car-related transactions – from fueling/charging, to parking and tolling, to curbside pickup and car washes – from inside the vehicle.

“We’ve now proven this can work with fueling,” he said. “Adding car washes is the next logical step. It’s all about making these types of transactions easier for car owners.”

Sheeva.AI’s innovative product suite is currently in production in India. Trials with other automotive OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers globally are on track for later in 2024. The company has mapped more than 3 million service points – including fuel pumps, car washes, parking spaces and EV chargers – into the Sheeva.AI database.
