A connected auto service plan will enable Amazon Key to connect with your vehicle for in-car deliveries.

For now, the service will be broadly useful in cities such as Dallas, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Chicago, and it's coming to more areas soon.

"Since launching Amazon Key last November, we've safely delivered everything from cameras to collectible coins inside the home".

Amazon turned the trunk of my auto into a mailbox.

Once the package is in the auto, the Amazon driver must swipe on the delivery app to lock the trunk before moving onto their next stop.

With Amazon Key In-Car Delivery, packages can be delivered to a vehicle when it's parked in a publicly accessible area, such as on the street in front of an apartment building, at a workplace surface parking lot or in a home driveway. If you end up moving your auto for whatever reason, the delivery is made to a physical address or rescheduled for in-car delivery the following day - depending on what you have pre-selected as your backup. It will be offered in San Francisco, Seattle, Atlanta, Nashville, Milwaukee, Salt Lake City, Washington, D.C. and other areas.

Not every package will be eligible for delivery to your auto.

"We have offered in-car delivery in Europe since 2015 through programs in the Nordics and Switzerland, and we believe that receiving packages should be as easy and convenient as ordering them online", said Anders Tylman-Mikiewicz, Vice President of Consumer Connectivity Services at Volvo Cars. "Setup was super easy for my OnStar-equipped car-I granted Amazon Key permission to open my car's trunk and the ability to relock my vehicle when done, and that was it", said Scott L. from Miami, one of the Amazon Prime members who received early access to the service. "In-car delivery gives customers that same peace of mind and allows them to take the Amazon experience with them".

"In-car deliveries can only be made to a stationary auto parked in an open, street-level, and publicly accessible area", the company writes in a FAQ on a Web site explaining the program.

The free service is similar to the free keyless in-home delivery, where the delivery person access the recipient's home while they are away to drop off packages.

Amazon said that it will include more locations and more vehicle makes and models over time. The Verge writes that packages over 50 pounds, are larger than 26 x 21 x 16 inches, are over $1,300, require a signature or are sold by third-party sellers won't be available for delivery to your trunk. Amazon's delivery people receive one-time access to open the trunk. No special codes or keys are given to the driver.

On the day and time that you're allocated for in-car delivery, which is provided on the day with a four-hour window, you need to ensure that your vehicle is parked "within two blocks" of the default delivery address associated with your Amazon account.

"Receiving a package securely and reliably in your auto, without you having to be there, is something we think many people will appreciate", noted Volvo's chief digital officer Atif Rafiq. "This mix of auto and commerce is starting the next wave of innovation and we intend to be at the forefront".
