Amazon launches 'in-vehicle' delivery in 37 U.S. markets

That's how Amazon delivery drivers will be able to unlock the cars to leave packages inside without the owner of the vehicle present.

The new service is available starting Tuesday to all Prime members through Amazon's Key app, but it only works with certain types of cars.

The company will expand the number of locations as well as eligible vehicle makes and models going forward.

The Amazon Key app uses a camera and smart lock so Prime members can have deliveries put inside their home, or vehicle.

In-vehicle delivery is an expansion of the Amazon Key program - which launched past year to allow drivers to drop off packages inside customers' homes. Amazon says it will notify customers after the package is in the trunk and vehicle is locked back up.

Key includes a "smart lock" for customers' doors, so they can be opened by the courier and a security camera. The service can also be used by customers with a Volvo that is equipped with "On-Call".

"Receiving a package securely and reliably in your vehicle, without you having to be there, is something we think many people will appreciate", said Atif Rafiq, chief digital officer at Volvo Cars.
