Get Parcels Delivered to Your Car with Amazon Key

Your Chevrolet, GMC, Buick, or Cadillac isn’t just a means of conveyance anymore. It’s a means of receipt, too. That’s thanks to a new program called Amazon Key that GM and Amazon have announced today.

The idea is simple. Rather than having the Amazon delivery people leave your package on your porch where neighbors can steal it, it’s instead left in your car, provided your okay with giving strangers access to your car while you’re nowhere near it.

“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,” said Alan Batey, President, General Motors North America. “This is another example of how we provide customers with technologies that add value and enhance the ownership experience.”

The system requires you to download the Amazon Key App and link it to your Amazon and OnStar accounts. You then have to specify the drop off location.

Naturally, the car has to be parked somewhere that a delivery person can actually get to, so you can’t park in your garage or in another, similarly inaccessible area.

Amazon sends you a notification when your package is delivered and the car is re-locked.
