SEATTLE: August 25, 2016. Amazon has launched Amazon Vehicles, a platform for U.S. customers to research for cars, participate in an online community – and order parts.
Buyers can now view specifications, images, videos and customer reviews for thousands of new and classic car models on Amazon.com, including everything from the 2016 Jeep Wrangler and 2014 Tesla Model S to the 2000 Chevrolet Corvette and 1965 Ford Mustang.
"Our goal is to support customers during one of the most important, research-intensive purchases in their lives by helping them make informed decisions every step of the way," said Adam Goetsch, director of Automotive at Amazon.com. "Amazon Vehicles is a great resource for customers who are interested in car information or looking for a broad selection of parts and accessories – all enhanced by the ability to tap into the knowledge, opinions, and experiences of other car owners within the Amazon customer community," he added.
Customers can now view comprehensive data and reviews for thousands of new and classic car models; browse thousands of customer reviews; add information about their current car for shopping parts and accessories; and then shop for them from the Amazon Automotive store for delivery based on the company's existing shipping options.
