Now your Prime Day delivery can include a new car. Hyundai just announced that it is partnering with Amazon and that you’ll be able to buy a new car through the world’s largest online bookstore.
“Hyundai is a very innovative company that shares Amazon’s passion for trying to make customers’ lives better and easier every day,” said Amazon CEO Andy Jassy.
Customers will be able to search on Amazon for available Hyundais in their area, and then even checkout online with their preferred payment method or financing options. Cars will still come from dealerships, but Hyundai says this is another way for dealers to be able to share their inventories and help move product.
Amazon AWS will also be Hyundai’s cloud provider as the company moves to an even more data-driven organization. Amazon Alexa will also be built-in to future Hyundais and will be able to perform a broad range of functions.
Dealers will be able to start selling their Hyundai inventory through Amazon’s marketplace starting next year.
