Classifieds website Amazon.com has taken its first steps into the automotive portal space by launching a vehicle research service. Amazon Vehicles allows users to view vehicle-detail pages and reviews of thousands of new and classic cars, while being able to upload photos and videos of their own rides.
Those who upload their vehicles can interact with the Amazon Vehicles community by answering questions about their cars.
Amazon’s vehicle detail pages have sections that break down “model changes,” “model strengths” and “model value.” The pages also include an extensive “model overview” that summarizes vehicle features.
Amazon Vehicles is an extension of the company’s Amazon Automotive store, which is a marketplace for parts that Amazon sells and ships, as well as used parts offered by others, just as Amazon.com does for other, non-automotive products. But they don’t offer vehicle transactions as of yet.
