Amazon Key is now available nationwide to some seven million owners of eligible Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac vehicles. Amazon Key allows packages to be delivered inside the vehicle, which comes at no additional cost for Amazon Prime members with an active OnStar account.
So far, the service is available in 37 cities with more expected 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,” explained 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.”
With Amazon Key In-Car Delivery, packages can be delivered to a vehicle when it’s parked in a publicly accessible area, such as on the street, at a workplace, in a parking lot or in a driveway. Delivery is available on tens of millions of items sold via Amazon and works with Same Day, Two-Day, and Standard Shipping.
“At Amazon, we are always working to make our customers’ lives easier and we’re excited to bring in-car delivery to Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac owners,” added 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.”
To activate the service, customers can download the Amazon Key App which will link their Amazon and OnStar accounts. Once a delivery location has been registered, customers select the “In-Car” delivery option at checkout. Additional delivery addresses can be added at any time. Customers receive a notification when the delivery is en route, after it’s made, and after the vehicle is relocked.
Amazon Key In-Car Delivery requires a 2015 or newer Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac vehicle.
