As we mentioned a few months ago, Amazon.com is looking for break into the automotive portal market. Today they took things a step closer by signing a deal with Fiat Chrysler to offer Italian customers discounted sales of Fiat’s Panda, 500 and 500L on the online retail giant’s website.
There’s no one-click shopping for cars just yet. After selecting their purchase, Italian customers will be notified by Amazon as to where they can pick up their new vehicle within two weeks
In an online press conference, Gianluca Italia, managing director for Fiat Chrysler in Italy, said: “The time has arrived to give consumers a new, more efficient and transparent way to choose a new vehicle.”
Amazon debuted a similar offering for French customers last month, though customers there could only place an online down payment. To get the vehicle, customers still need to contact a dealership and fork over the remainder of their payment.
