Hyundai cars on Amazon: Amazon will begin selling Hyundai ( 005380.KS ) vehicles online in the (United States) U.S. starting next year, Hyundai said. In addition, both the companies have also entered into an agreement in this regard. Customers will be able to purchase the car through Amazon and get it delivered through a local Hyundai dealer.
The development comes as part of a deal announced two years ago to expand Amazon’s Hyundai Digital Showroom. Part of this agreement allows the customer to configure the vehicle, calculate the price, and perform a variety of tasks, including locating a dealer to complete the sale.
Hyundai also launched its first digital showroom on Amazon in 2018. While the latest version was announced at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the statement also mentioned that Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant can be used to purchase new Hyundai vehicles in the coming days as per the new deal.
In this regard, Hyundai Motor CEO Jay Chang said, “Partnering with one of the world’s most customer-centric companies opens up incredible opportunities to expand our portfolio, grow our sales network, transition to electrification and realize the future of smart mobility.”
Initially, it is being introduced to American consumers, and after this it is likely to be introduced in other markets including India. Amazon digital platform users in the US can now choose car models from different brands. However, they have to contact the listed dealership to make the purchase.
A first for an e-commerce platform: Two-wheelers can already be purchased through Flipkart in India. But till now cars were not allowed to be bought on e-commerce site. But, finally this service is available on Amazon for the first time. Apart from this, e-commerce sites have continuously tied up with automobile manufacturers to provide exceptional customer service.
