Hyundai Luxury Car to Use iPad as Manual

In what we can only assume is a bid to make sure you don’t spend too much time thinking about the fact that you just spent between $50,000 to $60,000 on a Hyundai, the new luxury Hyundai Equus will have an iPad as a manual.

The New York Times is reporting that the car will come with “a virtual owner’s manual on an Apple iPad that they can also use to schedule service appointments and operate other applications.”

Hyundai dealers will then pick up Equus models from owners’ homes, drop off a loaner, and return the Equus after service.

“Nobody wants to go to the dealership, not even a Lexus or BMW dealer,” A Hyundai rep told the Times.
