Thanks to a new partnership between Finovate Best of Show winner AutoGravity and Hyundai Capital America, California car buyers using AutoGravity have new financing options when looking to buy a Hyundai, Kia, or Genesis vehicle. “With the growing number of consumers embracing AutoGravity, as well as the seamless integration of AutoGravity with dealer process, we felt that this was the perfect opportunity to test the platform,” Hyundai Capital America President and CEO Ross Williams said.
AutoGravity founder and CEO Andreas Hinrichs said the partnership with Hyundai Capital America – which does business as Hyundai Motor Finance, Kia Motors Finance, and Genesis Finance – will give users of the auto buying and financing app a greater range of financing options. “AutoGravity brings the car financing experience into the digital age where today’s consumer wants to find it: in the palm of their hand,” Hinrichs added.
Available in at both the Apple App Store and at Google Play, AutoGravity’s free app digitally connects prospective car buyers and leasers with lenders and dealers. Partnerships with leading banks and captive lenders like Hyundai Capital America enable car shoppers to arrive at the dealership with everything from vehicle selection to financing already ready-to-go. Since its launch in 2016, more than 700,000 consumers have downloaded AutoGravity’s app.
Founded in 2015 and headquartered in Irvine, California, AutoGravity demonstrated its app at FinovateFall 2016, winning Best of Show. Last month, the company was highlighted by GoBankingRates as one of the best personal finance apps and featured by AutoFinance News as one out of 10 auto finance and mobility companies leveraging AI. AutoGravity announced an investment from VW Credit, Volkswagen’s finance division in July, a partnership with Fletcher Jones Auto Group in June, and won the 2017 North American Frost & Sullivan Entrepreneurial Company of the Year Award in May.
