Owners of more than 7 million eligible Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac vehicles in the United States can now have Amazon packages delivered inside of their vehicles, General Motors Co. announced today.
In-car delivery uses the Amazon Key App and comes at no extra cost for Amazon Prime members with an active OnStar account. The service is available in 37 U.S. cities and surrounding areas, with more cities to follow.
“Partnering with Amazon to leverage our embedded in-vehicle connectivity gives Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac owners the option to conveniently receive deliveries inside their vehicle parked at home, work, or near other locations in their Amazon address book,” says Alan Batey, president of General Motors North America. “This is another example of how we provide customers with technologies that add value and enhance the ownership experience.”
With the program, packages can be delivered to a vehicle when it’s parked in a publicly accessible area, such as on the street, at a workplace surface parking lot, or in a home driveway. Delivery is available on tens of millions of items and works with same-day, two-day, and standard shipping.
“At Amazon, we are always working to make our customers’ lives easier, and starting today, we’re excited to bring in-car delivery to Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac owners,” says Peter Larsen, vice president of delivery technology at Amazon. “Prime members now have another way to ensure their packages are safe and secure — all for no additional cost.”
Customers download the Amazon Key App and opt in to link their Amazon and OnStar accounts. The delivery location can then be registered, and customers can select the in-car delivery option at checkout. Additional eligible delivery addresses can be added at any time. Customers are notified through the app when delivery is on its way, after the delivery is completed, and when the vehicle has been relocked.
