Sending your car for a wash, or doing it yourself, or taking it in to be serviced means having to take time out of your day to do so. If you’re the type that’s way too busy for these kinds of things, not to worry because if you own a Volvo, the company has recently launched the Concierge app at the LA Auto Show.
So what is this Concierge app about? Basically the app will bring a variety of services right to your doorstep. This includes washing your car, having your gas tank refilled, and having it serviced, and the best part is that you won’t even need to leave your home as the service will come to you. In fact you can even choose not to step outside your home as the app can generate a one-time use digital key that is time and location specific.
This means that whoever is servicing your car will be able to get into your car, do their job, without having to come to you for the key. Customers can even choose if they want their car returned to the same place they left it, or delivered to a new location, although given the use of the digital key, this is pretty much limited to the new Volvo XC90 SUVs and S90 luxury sedans.
According to Lex Kerssemakers, President and CEO of Volvo Car USA, “Volvo Concierge Services will mean that you never have to stand out in the rain to fill your car again. At Volvo Cars our mission is to make life less complicated, and this is a great example of how in-car technology can be used to deliver this.”
