    Amazon, GM Team Up For In-Car Deliveries

    Amazon seems to be everywhere these days, including in your vehicle. General Motors and the online retailer have announced today that over 7 million GM owners can now opt in for in-car delivery of their Amazon orders through Amazon Key.*

    “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,” said Alan Batey, President, General Motors North America. “This is another example of how we provide customers with technologies that add value and enhance the ownership experience.”

    Amazon Key is free for Amazon Prime members and is currently offered as an option in 37 cities in the U.S. From a GM perspective, owners will need to have an active OnStar account for the service to work. After linking their Amazon and OnStar accounts via the Amazon Key app, Amazon shoppers will be able to select in-car delivery as an option, so long as their vehicle is parked in a publicly-accessible location. Owners will get a notification on their phone when the package has been delivered to the vehicle and the vehicle has been relocked.*

    “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,” said Peter Larsen, Vice President of Delivery Technology, Amazon. “Prime members now have another way to ensure their packages are safe and secure—all for no additional cost.”

    GM says most 2015 and newer Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC models will be eligible for the new service.*

    Pass. I hate all this invasive tech. All the nannies in cars are annoying, too. -Millenial by birth, geezer by choice.
