You’ll soon be able to buy a car on Amazon
Amazon announced that it will allow auto dealers to sell cars through its platform next year.
This new digital shopping experience will allow customers to purchase a new car online, and then pick it up or have it delivered by their local dealership. Customers will be able to search on Amazon for available vehicles in their area based on a range of preferences, including model, trim, color, and features; choose their preferred car; and then check out online with their chosen payment and financing options without leaving the Amazon platform.
Hyundai will be the first to offer its cars on Amazon.
“Hyundai is a very innovative company that shares Amazon’s passion for trying to make customers’ lives better and easier every day. Our broad, strategic partnership should do just that, from changing the ease with which customers can buy vehicles online to making it simple to use Alexa in Hyundai vehicles for entertainment, shopping, smart home adjustments, and calendar checks to enabling Hyundai to transform their customer experiences and business operations by moving to AWS. We look forward to inventing together for many years.” – Amazon CEO Andy Jassy.
