The new service as of now is in direct partnership with only two major automakers - GM and Volvo- and will rollout immediately in 37 cities in the United States.

In November a year ago, Amazon launched an in-home delivery service called Amazon Key.

For those unfamiliar, Amazon Key is a new service offered by Amazon to Prime members where it allows the delivery person to deliver your packages to the inside of your home.

The service is now available in 37 cities across the US. It doesn't matter whether you pick Same Day, Two-Day or Standard Shipping; all items will be able to be dropped off to your auto. Amazon says it hopes to add other auto brands in the future.

To get started, customers download the Amazon Key App and then link their Amazon account to their connected auto service account.

"Since launching Amazon Key last November, we've safely delivered everything from cameras to collectible coins inside the home", Larsen said. The shopper has to confirm that they've parked within range of the delivery location - in a publicly accessible area - and can track the progress through the Amazon Key app.

Professional Wrestling Icon Bruno Sammartino Dies at 82
Arnold Schwarzenegger , who inducted Sammartino into the Hall of Fame in 2013, said: " Bruno Sammartino was a legend". We at Wrestling Rumors extend our deepest condolences to the entire Sammartino family during this hard time.

The in-car delivery scheme, available to Amazon Prime members, is an attempt by Amazon to overcome the hesitation that many feel about opening their home remotely for couriers. Add eligible items to your cart and proceed to checkout where you will see your delivery options, including an option to receive your package in-car.

Once the driver is standing next to the vehicle, they tap on the app and it opens the locks.

If Amazon has your auto information, there's no reason it can't deliver packages wherever you're parked for an extended period of time. Amazon Key allows packages to be delivered inside the vehicle, which comes at no additional cost for Amazon Prime members with an active OnStar account.

Customers won't be able to get in-car deliveries if they park inside gated and underground parking garages where satellite signals often can't penetrate. Packages are placed in the vehicle's trunk or out of plain sight. Customers receive a notification when the delivery is en route, after it's made, and after the vehicle is relocked. First, Amazon's drivers have access to your auto and not your home. We only actually do the unlock if its [sic] the right person, right place, right vehicle, right time.

Head to Amazon's In-Car delivery page for more information or to sign up. Once the driver is confirmed to be at the right place with the right package, the auto is unlocked.
