Amazon to sell vehicles online, Hyundai up first

The e-commerce giant and Hyundai announced a partnership at the 2023 LA Auto Show to sell vehicles directly on Amazon.com.

Starting next year, you can find and buy Hyundai vehicles online on Amazon. You can then pick it up directly from your local dealer or have it delivered.

You will be able to choose from different models, trims, colors, and features to personalize your vehicle. And then you can check out directly on Amazon, the site we are all on way too much anyway.

Hyundai’s CEO, Jay Chang, said the historic partnership will unlock “incredible opportunities” as it grows its sales networks and transitions to electrification.

Starting in 2025, customers buying Hyundai’s next-gen vehicles will gain access to the hands-free Alexa. It will be like talking to Alexa at home but in your car.

Alexa can help you play music, podcasts, and audiobooks. It can also set reminders, update lists, and check your calendar to keep you on track when things get busy.

Even better, you can control your smart home while on the road. You can ask Alexa to warm up the house on the way home or check that you locked the doors.
