Hyundai Equus To Ship With iPad, Ditches Owner's Manual

Hyundai's newest luxury sedan, the Equus, was just revealed at the New York Auto Show with the announcement it'll forgo the mostly ignored paper owner's manual in favor of an iPad, allowing customers to make vehicle service appointments wirelessly.

The Hyundai Equus slots above the Genesis sedan as the top-of-the-line offering of the brand with big, Lexus-like styling and the same 385 HP Tau V8 in its little brothers but at a price starting between $50 and $60K. Most of this was expected, but what caught press conference attendees off-guard was Hyundai revealing it'll get an iPad tablet instead of an owner's manual.

No pictures yet as apparently no one at Hyundai is connected enough to get one (above is a rendering), but we've got confirmation it'll be used to not only for entertainment but also to view information about the vehicle and share information when the vehicle launches later this Summer.
