Starting today, Amazon Prime subscribers in 37 cities can have their packages delivered to the trunk of their cars.

The new service gives couriers access to a person’s vehicle by using existing connected technologies, such as GM’s OnStar. The in-car delivery service is initially available on Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, Cadillac, and Volvo vehicles, model year 2015 or newer, and users must have an active OnStar or Volvo on Call account. Amazon said it plans on adding other automakers over time.

With Amazon in-car delivery, packages can be delivered to a vehicle when it’s parked in a publicly accessible area, including the street in front of an apartment building, or a workplace surface parking lot. Setting up the service involves downloading the Amazon Key app and opting in to seamlessly link the Amazon and OnStar or Volvo on Call accounts. Once the delivery location has been registered, users can simply select the “In-Car” delivery option.

Naturally, deliveries must be made to a stationary car. Customers will receive a notification when the delivery is on its way, once the delivery is completed, and the vehicle has been relocked.

“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.”
