In a groundbreaking move, Amazon’s U.S. store will host auto dealers, starting with Hyundai in 2024. This digital shift revolutionizes car buying, allowing easy online purchases with local dealership delivery or pickup.
Hyundai’s collaboration with Amazon Web Services also ensures enhanced digital experiences, making future vehicles responsive and equipped with hands-free Alexa integration from 2025, seamlessly bringing the home experience to the driver’s seat. This innovative partnership marks a significant leap forward in the automotive industry’s embrace of digital commerce and connectivity.
“Hyundai is a very innovative company that shares Amazon’s passion for trying to make customers’ lives better and easier every day. Our broad, strategic partnership should do just that, from changing the ease with which customers can buy vehicles online to making it simple to use Alexa in Hyundai vehicles for entertainment, shopping, smart home adjustments, and calendar checks to enabling Hyundai to transform their customer experiences and business operations by moving to AWS. We look forward to inventing together for many years.”
Amazon CEO Andy Jassy
