Amazon launched its in-car delivery service last year. It does what the name suggests, deliver packages you’ve ordered to the trunk of your car. Only vehicles from Volo and General Motors were supported initially but this has now been expanded to include Ford and Lincoln vehicles from the 2017 model year and onwards.
There are some limitations to this, though. The service is only available in about 50 cities across the country. The vehicles need to have a modem through which the user can connect to Ford’s connected car cloud services, Lincoln Connect, and FordPass connect.
This delivery option is only available to Amazon Prime Members. Any packages larger than 26 x 21 x 16 inches in size and weighing over 50 pounds will require a signature upon delivery. Items from third-party sellers are not allowed for in-car delivery.
Once a customer has opted for this shipping option, Amazon will send them a series of notifications to keep up with their package right until the moment the package is on its way. Access can be granted to the delivery person through the Amazon Key app. The app can also be used to change delivery locations or also to block access to the car. If the vehicle is blocked, Amazon then defaults to the customer’s backup delivery location.
