Amazon Can Now Deliver Packages To The Trunk Of Your GM And Volvo

General Motors and Volvo have joined forces with Amazon to enable customers to have their Amazon Prime shipments delivered directly to their vehicle at no additional cost.

In order to sign up for the Amazon Key In-Car Delivery service, customers simply download the Amazon Key app and then link their Amazon account to their Volvo On Call or OnStar account. Once the setup has been completed and a delivery location has been registered, customers will be able to select the “In-Car” delivery option when buying items on Amazon.

When the option is selected, packages can be delivered to eligible GM and Volvo vehicles in 37 major metropolitan areas in the United States including Chicago, New York and Los Angeles. However, there are some caveats as the vehicle needs to be parked in a publicly accessible area such as a driveway, street or unrestricted parking lot.

Customers will receive a notification, via the Amazon Key app, when a delivery is on its way. They will also be sent another notification after the package has been delivered and their vehicle locked.

Volvo was coy on vehicle requirements but said the service will work with a “majority” of Volvo models in the United States. GM, on the other hand, said the service requires a 2015 model year or newer Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac vehicle. Customers from both automakers can see if their vehicle is eligible for the service by visiting www.amazon.com/keyincar.

In a statement, GM North America President Alan Batey said “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.” He added, “This is another example of how we provide customers with technologies that add value and enhance the ownership experience.”

Volvo chief digital officer Atif Rafiq was similarly proud of the partnership as he said “Receiving a package securely and reliably in your car, without you having to be there, is something we think many people will appreciate.”

    For those of us that don’t drive a GM or Volvo, how about texting me five minutes before the driver shows up, I’ll meet you in the lot, show you some code on my phone, and put it in the trunk myself?
